I want to issue cards and credentials

To launch a card program, you’ll need a banking relationship, an issuer processor and likely a program manager. Some of our partners can do it all. Learn more in our Steps to Launch a Card Program course. Here’s a rundown:

BIN Sponsors

A BIN sponsor is the issuing bank that owns the Bank Identification Number (BIN), which is necessary to access the Visa network. The issuing bank holds cardholder funds, and takes on the role of managing risk and local country regulations, adhering to Visa rules and often acting as the settlement agent.
