credit_card_validator | Credit Card Validator

A Dart package that validates credit card numbers, expiration dates, and security codes (CVV/CVC) of a credit card. It also determines the type of credit card as part of the validation process.

This package should be used to quickly validate credit card data inputs and provide feedback to the user in your application's UI. It includes support for "potentially valid" inputs so that you can appropriately display the results to the user as they type.

Disclaimer: This package does not verify credit card information with the user's bank or credit company. Please use a payment processing service like Stripe or Braintree for true verification, validation, and processing of the user's payment info.

A basic example

import 'package:credit_card_validator/credit_card_validator.dart';

class CreditCardValidationBloc {
    CreditCardValidator _ccValidator = CreditCardValidator()

    bool validateCreditCardInfo(string ccNum, string expDate, string cvv, ...) {
        var ccNumResults = _ccValidator.validateCCNum(ccNum);
        var expDateResults = _ccValidator.validateExpDate(expDate);
        var cvvResults = _ccValidator.validateCVV(cvv, ccNumResults.ccType);

        if(ccNumResults.isPotentiallyValid) {
            # Call UI code that shows to the user their credit card number is invalid

If multiple card types are detected then the returned message will include the list of conflicting cards. You can then edit/remove the cards as needed using the API available in credit_card_type_detector
