You’ll use this number to set up wire transfers between Commerce Bank and another bank.
What Is a Routing Number?
Routing numbers are nine-digit codes that identify individual banks. Although commonly used for wire transfers, here are some other instances where routing numbers are used:
- Paying a bill by phone or online
- Setting up recurring payments
- Processing checks
Routing numbers have been in use since 1910, when the American Bankers Association first introduced them. They were originally designed to identify the endpoint at which checks were processed, but their role has expanded in the years since.
Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?
Yes, banks can have multiple routing numbers. Larger banks might have many different routing numbers for different states. That’s partly because of their size, but it also might stem from mergers they’ve executed over the years. Wells Fargo and Bank of America are a couple of examples of banks with multiple routing numbers.
Commerce Bank uses only one routing number, which simplifies things for its customers.
How Do You Find a Routing Number on a Check?
The routing number on a check is located on the bottom-left corner. It’s printed next to the account number. If you find yourself confused over which number is which, just remember that routing numbers are always nine digits long.
What Is Commerce Bank’s Routing Number for International Wire Transfers?
You can send international wire transfers the same way you would with domestic transfers, but you’ll use a SWIFT code instead of a routing number. Here’s Commerce Bank’s SWIFT code:

SWIFT codes work the same way as routing numbers in that they identify the financial institutions facilitating a wire transfer.
