Banks use routing numbers to identify each other. Routing numbers have nine digits that contain chunks of information that confirm the identities of the financial institutions involved in banking transactions.

A Better Way to Bank

The history of routing numbers stretches back over a century. The American Bankers Association formerly introduced them back in 1910. Originally used to identify check-processing endpoints, the routing number now serves a variety of functions, including online payment processing.

Can Banks Have Multiple Routing Numbers?

Yes, they can. Unlike FNBO Direct, FNBO uses different routing numbers depending on where its customers live. You can find different FNBO numbers on the bank’s website. Nationwide banks like Wells Fargo and Citi® are other examples of banks that use multiple routing numbers.

How Do You Find a Routing Number on a Check?

The routing number on a check is located in the bottom-left corner, right before your account number. If you ever find a different routing number on your check than the one on your bank’s website, it likely means that the routing number was assigned based on your bank’s location.

What Is the Routing Number for International Wire Transfers?

FNBO Direct does not have a SWIFT code, which is a routing number for international transfers. Customers can only execute domestic wire transfers with their FNBO Direct account, according to a bank representative GOBankingRates spoke to. FNBO, however, does have a SWIFT code.

A Better Way to Bank

If you link your FNBO Direct account to an FNBO account that can receive international wires, you can circumvent that limitation.
