A one-stop forum for all your banking questions
Please note that we first need to determine if you are sending or receiving money. A routing number is an IBAN number required when sending money to beneficiaries abroad, in this case the IBAN number will be provided directly by the beneficiary, however, when receiving money a Swift code will then have to be provided together with your banking details. The Standard bank swift code is SBZAZAJJ. If a beneficiary is not certain on the IBAN number, he/she can contact their branch to obtain this information. Please visit: http://www.standardbank.co.za/standardbank/Personal/Banking/Foreign-Exchange/Payments-and-transfers/... for more information.
I have been facing the same "routing number" problem. I want to withdraw funds from my PayPal Wallet. However, it requires me to add a bank account and for me to do so I need to provide the routing number for my bank. Can you please assist me on how I get the routing number for Standard Bank.
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.
Still a very confused human here. I followed the link I found nothing. I saw another post about the iban number being in your online profile when you log in. I tried that too. And I got nothing. May I please have a direct source to where I would find it. I feel like I went on a goose chase.
My understanding is that you were using debit MasterCard which limits your online transactions. First step is to change this account to cheque in order to transact online, secondly you will link your cheque account with Paypal in order to do inter-transfer between accounts.
We only 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.
NB: Note you will have to make contact with pay pal to link both accounts (Paypal to Standard Bank).
Let me know should you still require my intervention on this.
Kindly note that you are able to upgrade your account and still keep your account number. All you need to do is to visit your nearest branch with your ID book and proof of residence in order to be assisted with the upgrade.
Please be advised that there are no fees associated with upgrading your account however, there are various monthly fees associated with the different cheque accounts offered by the bank. A student achiever account has monthly fees of R5.30 and an Elite cheque account would cost R100.88 in monthly fees. You are able to upgrade your account to an Elite provided you earn a monthly income of R5 000. You will need to visit your nearest branch in order to be assisted with the upgrade.
