Modified on Fri, 04 Aug 2023 at 11:24 AM

Your International Bank Account Number (IBAN) is a unique identifier for your bank account, used especially for international transactions. If you need to provide your IBAN to a payment processor, here's a step-by-step guide to help you find it:

Method 1: Online Banking

1. Log In: Access your online banking account using your username and password.

2. Account Overview: Once logged in, you'll usually land on the account overview or dashboard page.

3. Account Details: Look for the account you want to provide the IBAN for and click on it. This will usually take you to a page with detailed account information.

4. Account Information: On the account details page, you should find your IBAN land and other account information like your account number, account holder's name, and bank details.

5. Copy or Note Down: Copy your IBAN or write it down accurately. Make sure to double-check the digits to avoid errors.

Method 2: Bank Statement

1. Retrieve a Statement: If you have a recent bank statement, either in paper or electronic format, it should contain your IBAN.

2. Locate IBAN: Scan through the statement for any section that provides your account details. Your IBAN might be labeled as such, or it could be within a longer string of numbers and characters.

3. Copy or Note Down: Once you find your IBAN, copy it or jot it down correctly. Pay attention to any spaces or special characters.

Method 3: Contact Your Bank

1. Customer Service: If you're unable to find your IBAN through online banking or a statement, consider reaching out to your bank's customer service.

2. Verification: They might ask you to verify your identity through security questions, so have your account details or identification information ready.

3. IBAN Retrieval: Let them know you need your IBAN to make an international payment, and they should be able to provide it to you.

Example IBAN Format 

An IBAN typically consists of a country code, check digits, bank code, branch code, and account number. The arrangement and length of these components can vary by country and bank. Here's an example of what an IBAN might look like:

Example IBAN: GB82 WEST 1234 5698 7654 32

- Country Code (GB): The two-letter ISO country code for the bank's country.

- Check Digits (82): Validation digits for accuracy.

- Bank Code (WEST): Unique code identifying the bank.

- Branch Code (1234): Identifies a specific branch or location.

- Account Number (5698 7654 32): Your individual bank account number.
