Integrating with cURL

The most basic way to interact with the Parrot by Pagos BIN service is via the Command Line Interface (CLI).


Before you get started, you'll need the following:

Next, confirm cURL is installed in your terminal application.

curl --version

You should see output similar to below. The version itself isn’t important for our service at this time.

super-computer ~ % curl --version
curl 7.64.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin20.0) libcurl/7.64.1 (SecureTransport) LibreSSL/2.8.3 zlib/1.2.11 nghttp2/1.41.0

Make a request

To receive the JSON data for a BIN, make a request using your API key and the desired BIN number:

curl -H "x-api-key: [your API key]"  "[BIN/IIN number]"

Here’s the output for example BIN 510084


That’s it! From here you can use various programming languages to pull the data into your systems.
