faker.providers.credit_card

class faker.providers.credit_card.Provider(generator: Any)

Bases: faker.providers.BaseProvider

Implement default credit card provider for Faker.

For all methods that take card_type as an argument, a random card type will be used if the supplied value is None. The list of valid card types includes 'amex', 'diners', 'discover', 'jcb', 'jcb15', 'jcb16', 'maestro', 'mastercard', 'visa', 'visa13', 'visa16', and 'visa19'.

credit_card_expire(start: Union[datetime.date, datetime.datetime, datetime.timedelta, str, int] = 'now', end: Union[datetime.date, datetime.datetime, datetime.timedelta, str, int] = '+10y', date_format: str = '%m/%y') → str

Generate a credit card expiry date.

This method uses date_time_between() under the hood to generate the expiry date, so the start and end arguments work in the same way here as it would in that method. For the actual formatting of the expiry date, strftime() is used and date_format is simply passed to that method.

Examples:
>>> Faker.seed(0)
>>> for _ in range(5):
...     fake.credit_card_expire()
...
'05/28'
'12/28'
'07/22'
'03/26'
'07/30'
credit_card_full(card_type: Optional[CardType] = None) → str

Generate a set of credit card details.

Examples:
>>> Faker.seed(0)
>>> for _ in range(5):
...     fake.credit_card_full()
...
