PacPay, a non-profit institution oversees the private sector automated clearinghouse, known as the Hawaii Regional Processing Center, specifically designed to meet the needs of Hawaii financial institutions.
The mission of the Pacific Payments Alliance (“PacPay”) is to promote the safe, secure, and efficient use of the electronic payment systems that serve our members in the State of Hawaii and the communities they operate in. This mission will be accomplished through a program that seeks to:
- Educate members on the safe and secure use of electronic payment systems.

- Negotiate for our members to obtain regional processing that meets the special needs of Hawaii financial institutions.

Bin Database/Credit Card Bin Checker
The Bank Identification Number, also known as the credit card bin can tell you the name of the bank that issued the card, the type of card like Debit or Credit, brand of card Visa, MasterCard and level of card like Electron, Classic and Gold. From the bin database you can also check other details about the card and issuer. Credit card bin numbers are the first 6 digits of a card number.
It is our goal at Macha/PAR to help you mitigate risk while maintaining regulatory compliance in the payments arena. To realize this goal we offer a wide-range of compliance services including audits, risk assessments, advisory, unclaimed property, and escheatment services to our members and beyond. As an industry leader in payments compliance, our trained staff of AAPs goes above and beyond the basic requirements. We will not only offer solutions and staff training to ensure compliance and mitigate risk, but also to improve operational procedures and efficiency.
