Parrot Batch Data Dictionary

The Parrot BIN list is a repository of information that you can use to refine your payments strategy and get to know your customers better. In Parrot Batch, there are two files of data fields you'll receive: Standard and Enhanced.

❗️

Empty Field Responses

The data provided in an individual field response depends on what data appears in the files Parrot receives from the card brands. If a field response is empty, this means our network files don't include any data for that field.

Any fields marked as "Visa only" will return a value for Visa BINs; for all non-Via BINs, they'll return an empty value in the Parrot Batch file.

If you're using the Parrot API, see the Parrot Data Dictionary.
