A valid credit card number has several fields and each of them has a meaning. For the technically inclined, this number complies to the ISO 7812 numbering standard. An contains a six-digit issuer identification number (IIN), an individual account identification number, and a single digit checksum.
The credit card numbers you generate on this page are completely random. When we say they are valid, we merely imply that they are a possible combination of characters which will validate when passed through the MOD 10 algorithm. You can also generate valid credit card numbers for specific Issuing Networks by utilising their particular prefixes. However, we do not provide you (obviously) with the correspondent verification code for these cards, as they are completely fake and made up randomly.
If you've ever found yourself trying to try a product online which required a credit card, even when you just want to take a look, you know why we made this. We believe there's no need to share such information with providers without the actual intent to buy stuff. Anyone can make a website with a form and require you to insert valuable and sensitive information which requires you to give up your privacy. This is a way to protect yourself in such situations.
The other reason we made this are programmers testing ecommerce websites, applications or other software. They usually need lots of fake data, and this is a very easy way to generate a bunch of valid credit card numbers in a split second. There's another tool for those times when you need to generate all other kinds of data.
No phone number listed on the credit report? Try using a search engine like Google or Yahoo! to find the company's website. Look for a "Contact Us" link on the site to find a contact number. Try looking through your old documents to locate a credit card statement from that creditor. When you have a number, call the card company. Let them know you have an account with them, but no longer have the credit card or the credit card number.credit.about.com
Recently, I’ve come across several sites who have done away with the credit card type field. Both Amazon and GitHub don’t require you to select a credit card type in their form. As you fill in the credit card number, the user interface changes to show the type of credit card being used. Amazon waits until the entire credit card number is entered and then displays an icon representing the credit card type.webstandardssherpa.com
Using the credit card example below, let’s take a look at how the Luhn algorithm works. Here we have a basic credit card with a 16 digit number (note that the last four digits, 9123, are a little difficult to see). In order to see if this card’s number is real, we need to follow a few easy steps. First we identify the check digit, which is always the last digit on the credit card.www.doughroller.net
