How to fast-track Mastercard BIN Sponsorship

What is a BIN Sponsorship?

BIN (bank identification number) sponsorship is a quick and easy way to process card payments and access large card schemes such as Visa, Discover and Mastercard. These schemes allow companies to create a scalable payments product and launch their proposition to market, without joining a card scheme directly.
