How bank verification works

At the same time you enter your sort code and account number, we simultaneously check if the details are correct, and the account is direct debit capable and CHAPs supported. So you will soon know if the customer is able to offer direct debit and credit card payments.

As the volume of online banking transactions increases rapidly, so does the need for our next-generation bank account validation, reducing payment errors, minimising fraud, and providing a better customer experience.

With market-leading technology, we instantly turn a simple sort code and account number into an array of useful information – such as their Bank Identifier Code (BIC), IBAN and full banking address.

Easily Integrate with a number of platforms

What is Bank Validation?

There are many reasons that you need Bank Validation on your website as well as within your internal systems. However, we also know there is a lot of jargon around bank validation. Hopefully, these answers to commonly asked questions will help you.

IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. This is an internationally agreed system of identifying bank accounts across the world.

Typically, the IBAN consists of a two letter country code, followed by two check digitals and up to 35 alphanumeric characters. The characters are known as the basic bank account number or BBAN for short!

 

For example:

IBAN GB65 HBUK 1234 5612 3456 78

 

 

IBAN is an additional number with extra information to help overseas banks identify your account details for payments.

BIC stands for Bank Identifier Code. It also goes by the name of SWIFT.

BIC is the address assigned to your bank in order to send payments quickly and accurately to the bank in question. It uniquely identifies the name and country of the bank involved in the transaction.
