Since this year, problems with payments for advertising in affiliate marketing became particularly acute. Big Tech giants started paying more attention to card quality and introduced pre-authorization. This has increased the number of accounts that are banned due to “risk payment” reasons.
Clean BINs and Risk of Bans
Affiliate marketers know that in order to avoid the bans, especially from risk payment, it’s insufficient to rely only on technical means, like private proxies, warmed-up accounts, cloaking and anti-detect browsers. There is one more factor that is often overlooked by them, and it is the quality of the payment card’s BIN.
The first 6 numbers of each card feature its BIN or Bank Identification Number. It allows to define the card’s type, class, and the bank that issued it. If cards with a certain BIN are actively applied for aggressive advertising (black hat / gray hat methods), the trustworthiness of that BIN drops. Soon after accounts associated with that BIN may be imposed by restrictions: payment risk bans, low daily spending limits, slow billing threshold growth, etc.
Verification tools process a lot of financial data to evaluate each BIN. Here is some examples of their metrics:
- Percentage of first billings on the given BIN;
- Amount of unpaid invoices;
- Records of aggressive advertising on the account.
Each situation, described above, decreases the trust level of the particular BIN. If the BIN is trusted, investment in privacy will pay for itself. In the opposite case, none of the proxies and cloaks can protect the account from restrictions and blocking.
