If you are still unsure about your bank code and branch code, you can make an inquiry at your bank branch or on its website, or even give a call to the customer service hotline at the back of your ATM card.
Below is a demonstration using a Hang Seng Bank and Bank of China account, respectively.
Example Hang Seng Bank ATM card number: 200 123456 789
The bank code of Hang Seng Bank is “024”. The first 3 digits on your ATM card, “200” in this case, is your branch code. The remaining numbers “123456-789” is your account number. Note that in Stripe’s registration form, you’ll have to type “-” in between the space.
Example Bank of China ATM card number: 012 933 4 567890 1
For Bank of China, its bank code “012” is already shown on the ATM card. The next 3 digits that follow, “933” in this case, is your branch code. “ 4 567890 1” Similarly, remember to input according to Stripe’s format. Enter the first 6 digits, include “-”, and the remaining digits follow. Therefore, we will enter “456789-01” for this account number.
