What is an IBAN?

IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. It’s a unique code (up to 34 numbers and letters long) that allows a bank or payment provider to know where to send money when you make a payment.

You can have multiple unique IBANs – all of which send payments to the same central bank account. Think of an IBAN as a sub-account of a central master account, allowing payments to be easily routed and received internationally.
