Don't have a Bank Code?
Send us the layout you received from your bank. We'll look it up in our library of formats and provide you with the correct Bank Express Code number. If we don't have your code on file, we update our library weekly (on Monday) and will provide you with a code without charge.
Why do we ask that you send in your format?
Many banks have multiple formats (the largest two banks have over a dozen formats each).
