Your account number will be up to 12-digits long and should not include leading 0’s.
The EFT routing number is 9-digits long and will always begin with a 0. It is made up of a 4-digit institution ID number, followed by a 5-digit branch transit number. If your institution ID only has 3 digits, please add a 0 to the front. For example:
0 + 3 digit institution number + 5 digit branch number
This information can also be found on a check.
However, please make sure to always check with your bank and specify that you need to receive an international deposit (from the US) because you will be responsible for any return fees.
