What are SWIFT, BIC, IBAN and CLABE numbers and how do I find them?

Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) and Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) are used to locate and identify financial institutions that are primarily overseas.

An Internationa Bank Account Number (IBAN) is a series of alphanumeric characters that uniquely identifies an account held predominantly by banks in Eurozone countries. Clave Bancaria Esandarizada (CLABE) is a standard 18-digit number for bank accounts in Mexico.

You can obtain any of these numbers by asking the payee for their wiring instructions.
