So what do these letters and numbers mean?

A SWIFT code — sometimes also called a SWIFT number — is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC). Banks and financial institutions use them to identify themselves globally. It says who and where they are — a sort of international bank code or ID.

These codes are used when transferring money between banks, particularly for international money transfers or SEPA payments. Banks also use these codes to exchange messages between each other.

Compare prices for sending money abroad

Banks and other transfer services have a dirty little secret. They add hidden markups to their exchange rates - charging you more without your knowledge. And if they have a fee, they charge you twice.

Wise never hides fees in the exchange rate. We give you the real rate. Compare our rate and fee with our competitors and see the difference for yourself.

Always confirm the details with your recipient

When sending or receiving money, always check the SWIFT code with your recipient or bank.

If you think you've used the wrong SWIFT code to send money, you should get in contact with your bank right away. They may be able to cancel the transaction. If it's too late to cancel, you might have to contact the recipient yourself and request that they return your money.
