How it Works

Parrot by Pagos is an easy to use API that provides access to detailed bank and market data based on the payment card’s Bank Identifier Number (BIN) or Issuer Identification Number (IIN). When you make a BIN/IIN request to Parrot we will return detailed information about the bank that issued the card, including details on the market (e.g. currency, time-zone).

It’s as easy as:

curl -H "x-api-key:[your API key here]" ""

About Us

We are a passionate team of payments veterans and technologists who know that better data can lead to better outcomes for customers, leading to higher revenue and lower costs for businesses. There is a lot of BIN/IIN data out there and yet we still hear merchants and payments companies asking for something better: higher quality, faster updates, better access, and actionable insight. The value Parrot adds comes from combining accurate BIN/IIN data with other data sets in the market and delivering that information through simple to use tools.

You can learn more about us here.
