Hey, @Swillow!

 

Lulu here from the Shopify Support team. Thanks for reaching out here, and I'll be more than happy to help you out.

 

You need a routing number and an account number to complete the Shopify payments set up. These numbers can be found at the bottom of a check or by contacting your bank.

 

If you are entering the correct information then I will need to investigate this further and in order to do so, I will need to see what you are typing into the signup so I would need screenshots of what you are entering at signup.

IMPORTANT - On the signup form there can be an SSN and SIN field. This is considered sensitive information, and we do not need it provided for troubleshooting. Please leave this field blank when providing screenshots, or please block out the information.

 

Firstly let me know if you are using the correct numbers confirmed by your bank and we can take it from there. 

 

Kind regards,

Lulu

Thank you for providing that screenshot, I have now deleted the image as they are your personal details. Have you checked that account number with your bank? It is separate to your IBAN I believe.

 

As this is confidential and account-specific, I will just need to verify your account. I will send you an email to the email address attached to this forums account and confirm some security questions about your store. Once you reply to that email, we can speak in more detail. 

 

Kind regards,

Lulu

Hello

I have gotten my payout and it is saying "your payout couldn’t be deposited because the bank account details you entered were incorrect. Make sure you enter details for a valid checking account.

After you update your bank account details, we’ll automatically try to deposit your payout. Until then, your payouts will be on hold". I have tried to change my details, and I am from Australia so I am

using my BSB number. But when I try and put in the account number it says it invalid, I don't have another bank account so what can I do. It also tells me to put in my old routing number and account 

number but I only have one account number so what can I do?

Hi, @Ned123.

Welcome to the thread. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your payouts. Are you using the Shopify Payments gateway? If so, you must have a full checking account located in Australia with your Australian financial institution. If you use as savings accounts or other speciality account types this can pose issues with payouts as we cannot support these account types. The bank account format in Australia is:

  • Bank account format:
    • Bank State Branch number (BSB): 6 digits
    • Account number: usually between 6-8 digits

Can you confirm that you meet these requirements? Have you tried entering your BSB number as the routing number as they are similar? Have you contacted your bank to confirm these details? If you are still having difficulties after this then please let me know and I can authenticate you as the account owner and take a closer look for you.

Speak soon!

Hello 

Yes I have, but I think I may have entered the wrong bank info when I first set up my shop I am now receiving and error

To change your bank account, make the following changes

- Old account must match the information we have on file. Contact support if you need further help.

The problem is, I can't match the old information as I don't know what error I made.

My bank account is also in the same currency which my store operates so I don't think that is the issue. 

Any suggestions on how I fix this?

Thanks,

Hey, @egeddie123!

Thank you for joining the thread. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your account at the moment, that seems very strange, is it the Shopify Payments gateway? Where are you located? Do you have a screenshot of the error? Once I have a bit more information on this, I will be able to help you out further. 

Speak soon!

Hi Lulu,

I also need help with an invalid Account Number issue.

Our store supplies Australian produce to Singapore. Our business address is technically in Australia however we only sell to a Singapore market, and will only trade in Singapore dollars.

We have set up a bank account with our Australian Bank institution NAB, but in $SGD only. 

When I attempt to "complete Shopify Payments setup" - I get the error "Account number is invalid".

Is this something you can help with?

Thanks

did you get this figured out? I think my issue may have been a put my account number incorrectly but my routing number was the wrong one but now it won't let me change it and it's giving me that same error you were given.

I have recently put in my correct routing and account number and next to my bank it’s says NA? and it says a payout was paid but I didn’t receive it. And when I go to try and replace it it’s says I don’t have the correct numbers. What does this mean?
