Wells Fargo Local & International Wire Transfer Routing Numbers
Banks have a special routing number for domestic and international wire transfers. Wells Fargo is no different.
The number for domestic and international wire transfers is 121000248.
Routing numbers are straightforward. But that doesn’t mean you’re not curious about other aspects of it. The answers to these frequently asked questions should cover it.
What Is a Routing Number?
A routing number, also known as a routing transit number (aka RTN) or ABA number, is a nine-digit code the American Bankers Association assigns to identify a financial institution in a transaction. It quite literally helps route the transaction to the correct bank.
Every day, it helps millions of people get their payroll direct deposits, tax refunds, and government benefits. They can also use them to send ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments and wire transfers.
How Do You Find Your Routing Number on a Check?
Do you still have checks? You can find the routing number at the bottom left of your checks in those funny characters. Incidentally, it’s the one that’s not your account number or the check number.
How Do You Find Your Wells Fargo Routing Number Online?
Probably the easiest way to find your routing number is to just check your online account. How you find it depends on whether you’re looking on a desktop or mobile device, but it’s easy, either way.
To find it on your desktop, log in and go to your account summary. It doesn’t matter which account you choose unless the accounts are in different states or you need other information, such as your account number.
You can find the routing number by clicking the “Routing number” link located next to your account number under the account name or at the bottom of the summary. The numbers you need will pop up.
To find it on your phone or tablet, open the app and log in. Click on the account you need a number for. When it loads the summary, click the Routing & Details tab across the top. Your routing numbers are in the Account Info box.
Your routing numbers are always handy in your app, but if you’d rather keep them in your wallet or smartphone notes, you can do that too. Unlike your account number, they apply to every person at the same bank in the same state (or country in the case of wire transfer numbers).
I’d stop short of tattooing them on your person, though. What happens if you switch banks?
But if you’d rather not keep track of them at all, that’s no problem too. You can always check bank resources or just search online for them.
