What is an ACH routing number?

Similarly to ABA routing numberACH routing number, is a nine digit code that a financial institution or a bank is using to clear electronic transfers (that are processed by the Automated Clearing House). All ACH routing numbers are ABA routing numbers, but not all ABA routing numbers are ACH routing numbers (although some are).

What is the difference between ABA and ACH routing numbers?

For some institutions ABA and ACH numbers are one and the same, but not for all. It varies from bank to bank, that’s why it is important to check whether this is the case. ABA should be listed as “check routing numbers” and ACH as “electronic” or “direct deposit” numbers on your official bank’s websites.

Why do I see invalid routing number or account number error?

The error means that the account or routing number provided at the time of payment submission was incorrect, and the payment was not processed. To eliminate the error, please make sure you are using a valid routing number (your check routing number might be different from ACH number). You can check our list of US bank routing numbers.
