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.

Your questions, answered.

Routing numbers, SWIFT codes, BIC and IBANs – what’s the difference?

You’ll need a few details to send or receive a transfer – either domestically or internationally.

IBANs (international bank account numbers) identify individual bank accounts. They're issued by many banks in Europe, but banks elsewhere in the world are starting to adopt them as well.

Routing numbers help identify banks when processing domestic ACH payments or wire transfers. But only in the United States. You don't need one to make a payment to your friend in France, for example.

SWIFT codes, like routing numbers, also identify banks and financial institutions. This time for international payments. They're sometimes known as BIC codes.

Where can I find my BNP Paribas SWIFT code?

You can usually find the right SWIFT code for your bank on your statements, or in your online banking.

You can also search for your bank's SWIFT code with our finder tool.

Do all banks have a SWIFT code?

All banks have a SWIFT code, but not all banks have unique codes for each of their branches.

Is SWIFT code same for all branches?

It depends. Some banks have unique SWIFT codes for each of their branches, while others have one SWIFT code for all their branches.

If you don't know which SWIFT code to use, you can usually send money with the SWIFT code for the bank's head office.

Do you need BNP Paribas SWIFT code for international transfers?

When sending money internationally, you’ll need a SWIFT/BIC code. Without it, your bank can't identify the exact bank the money should go to. If you have the bank name and address, but not the SWIFT code, just use our SWIFT/BIC finder to get the right code to use.

TransferWise – the clever new way to send money abroad

Banks and other providers often add a markup to their exchange rate while advertising low fees, which means you could be paying huge hidden charges.

TransferWise uses the real Reuters exchange rate and charges a low, transparent fee. That’s why it’s cheaper. It’s only fair. It’s your money.
