Please note – We do our best to provide you with accurate and current numbers, but if you are unsure it is always best to check this number with the beneficiary’s bank. We offer these numbers to confirm the contact details already in your possession.

Option 4: Routing number

Sometimes banks provide an institution number and a transit number as a routing number. A routing number for electronic payments contains a 0 (called “leading zero” or “leading zero”), and is made up of a three-digit institution number and a 5-digit transit number.

Routing number format:
0YYYXXXXX

where:
YYY – institution number
XXXXX – transit number

For example, if the routing number is 026011242, the institution number is 260 and the transit number is 11242.
