A one-stop forum for all your banking questions
What is Standard bank's Routing number??? It is readily available for other banks such as Nedbank on their webpage, and I find it rediculous that we do not have it available on ours. I understand we have joined the IBAN community and now use swift codes but HOW can we then add a paypal account. I do not understand, do I need to open another bank account with another bank who CAN provide me with a routing number?
We use the IBAN as the routing number for all your international payments or transaction. You can still use the pay pal account with the IBAN to make your international transactions. Please follow the link for more information on this: http://www.standardbank.co.za/standardbank/Personal/Banking/Foreign-Exchange/Payments-and-transfers/....
Note you will have to make contact with pay pal to link both accounts (Paypal to Standard Bank). Kindly let me know should you still require my intervention on this.
Routing numbers are provided by the paying customer bank (051001) for standard bank which is universal, IBAN is what we call a Swift code.
We need to establish if you are sending or receiving money so that we can give a clear direction on how we can resolve this. Note the Paypal to provide you with the routing number for linking both accounts.
I am also searching for the Standard Bank routing number for the same purpose. The information provided in this entire discussion is NOT helpful as it does NOT answer the original question asked. I have been able to link PayPal to three other local banks with NO issues whatsoever related to finding their respective routing numbers.
Please note that when linking your account to Pay-pal using debit card this will require the routing number, which it is impossible to use the debit card for on-line transactions. You will notice that a debit card doesn't contain a CVV number hence it will not allow you to link an on-line account or further to make on-line purchases. The universal branch is applicable (051001) where you linking your on-line transaction or making on-line payments from a Pay-pal to your bank account (cheque or credit card only). This will also depend if you are sending or receiving money using Pay-pal which you will need your swift number or IBAN as they serve the same purpose for linking the account for transaction to take place.

Let me if this was helpful or should you need further assistance on this.
I read through all the replies and not once were any of the replies from Standard Bank helpful at all!!! I want to use my debit card for online purchases but Standard Bank says I cannot!!! My money my choice how I would like to use it, is it not??? They try force a person to open a cheque account, hence higher transaction fees, admin fees etc, etc, etc. Seems like its just a money making business for Standard Bank. I refuse to open another account, change the block on our debit cards so we can utilies facilities, or do we need to change banks because our bank doesn't want to accomadate our requests????? As for the routing number, why can u not in a simple message give it to us??? Why give is links to another Standard Bank website when we all just end up right back her??? Do u not understand us or do u like to give poor service and keep customers aggitated?????? I am NOT stupid and would like a straight forward answer, WHAT IS THE ROUTING NUMBER????????
