Canadian Routing Numbers Explained for Partners

As a partner who uses the Canadian banking system, it's important to understand routing numbers so that you can withdraw your balance via EFT from the platform.

What is a routing number?

Banks in Canada use routing numbers when processing transactions to identify the bank and branch associated with an account. This number can be formatted in 2 ways depending on the type of transaction taking place. For EFT transactions, your routing number always follows the format below:

  • The number is 9 digits long

  • 0 is a standard digit that always precedes the other 8 digits

  • 123 represents the bank associated with your account

  • 45678 represents the bank branch associated with your account


Be sure to use the format above when filling in the Routing Number field of your Bank Account settings. See Complete Your Bank Account Settings as a Partner for more information on how to set up or modify your payment method.
