Hi there, 

 

I'd just like to know how I should go about hooking up my Suncorp bank account to my Shopify account. I live in Australia and it says my bank state branch number is invalid. Why is this?

Hi, @Corgler

 

I’m Helen from Shopify Support. Thanks for reaching out today. Let’s get to the bottom of this!

 

The specific requirements for the bank account that is used for your Shopify Payments payouts are outlined in our Help Doc here.

 

Therefore, could you please confirm the following:

 

  • Suncorp is a physical bank located in Australia
  • Your bank account is a full checking account in AUD currency
  • The account is able to accept BECS transfers
  • The Bank State Branch number being entered, is 6-digits long

 

If your account meets all of the requirements above and you are still not able to connect, please let me know. I’m here to help get this resolved for you.

Hi, @buysomejunk

 

I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble connecting your bank account to your Shopify Payments account too. I’m here to help.

 

Have you already confirmed that your account fits the requirements listed in my post above?

 

To define some items in that list more specifically, these types of bank accounts can result in an error message when trying to connect, because they are not able to receive payouts through Shopify Payments:

 

  • Payoneer Accounts or other systems that mimic a bank account in another country
  • Savings Accounts
  • Flex Currency or any other type of speciality account
  • Accounts set up to only receive wire transfers

 

Let me know if your bank account fulfills all of the requirements, and I will continue to investigate this for you.

Hi, @Elanaselleck. Welcome to the Community! Thanks for reaching out about this. 

 

As a first step, please confirm that your account meets the requirements outlined in my post 01-17-2020 (see screenshot below). If you aren’t entirely sure your account fulfills the requirements, please contact Bank SA directly to have them check, and/or make the appropriate changes.

If your bank account does meet the above criteria, and you are still receiving an error message pertaining to the branch number, we’re happy to take a closer look at it. We’ll need to access your account in order to do so. While we’re not able to provide account-specific support via the Shopify Community at this time, we’d be happy to continue assisting you through live chat, email, or callback. Please visit the Help Center and log in to your account to create a support request.

 

Since this is the next step, I've marked this reply as the solution for the benefit of others who may discover this topic. Thanks!

Hi Helen,

I'm having the exact same problem.

I've opened a business account with Commonwealth Bank, checked all the requirements, I even called them and went through the requirements.

They said that everything is correct and ready to run on their side.

Many thanks,

Alex

Hey, @Alex_Topium. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with this! Thanks so much for contacting your bank to have them check everything on their side; that’s definitely the first step towards troubleshooting it. The last thing I’ll get you to confirm, is that you are entering your account and branch number without any hyphens or extra characters added. Just numbers. 

 

If you are satisfying that last requirement and still receiving an error message, then we will need to have our Shopify Payments team take a look into this for you. Since we’re unable to assist with account specific issues here in the Community, please create a support request by live chat, email or phone callback via the Help Center. A Support Advisor will authenticate your account, and gather all the details needed to escalate this on your behalf and figure out what the roadblock is.

 

Let me know if I can help with anything else!

Hello,

After checking BSB and Account number and make sure they were actually correct, the problem was fixed by using google chrome instead of firefox.

I hope this helps the community 😉
