SWIFT CodeBIC / SWIFT Code (Bank Identifier Code) is an international standard for identifying a bank. SWIFT is an international paying agency with more than 7000 banks in more than 192 member countries. All members of SWIFT get their own address; SWIFT address.

Using IBAN and SWIFT will often speed up the payment process.

When transferring to foreign accounts, most banks require the SWIFT code to be completed correctly for payment to be made at no additional cost. Because the transaction is handled automatically, the transaction costs are generally lower as well. If

If SWIFT code cannot be provided, there is still a possibility for transfer to be completed if correct Bank Registration Code (BLZ Code) and bank number are provided. BLZ means bank leitzahl, which is the registration number of a bank in Germany or Austria.

The code has a length of 8 or 11 characters. The first six characters are always letters, while the rest can be a combination of letters and numbers.

If SWIFT is required for a specific payment method, the validation defined in the bank setup and applied to the bank card using the Bank Code field, will alert you that SWIFT code must be applied.
IBANIBAN, means International Bank Account Number, and is an extension of your existing account number that you can use when making international payments.

IBAN gives you a greater degree of assurance that the incoming and outgoing payments are sent as quickly as possible via the banking systems. Because the structure of IBAN is uniform worldwide, the payment process with IBAN is faster.

IBAN is used in all EU countries and some other Western countries (eg Norway, Switzerland and Tunisia) We recommend using IBAN, but this is not a requirement.

If IBAN is required for a specific payment method, the validation will alert you that IBAN must be completed.
