What Is My ACH Routing Number?

Your bank routing number is a nine-digit code that's based on the U.S. Bank location where your account was opened. It's the first set of numbers printed on the bottom of your checks, on the left side. If given a choice, please choose "electronic" or "digital" for the routing number type. 


This number, which may be obtained from the receiving bank, is necessary in order to complete a domestic bank-to-bank electronic transfer.

Although funds are immediately deducted from your bank account, transfers between a bank account and Uphold are not immediate. Please note that ACH bank account transactions can take up to 5-7 business days to fully process and post. As soon as your bank has confirmed the transfer, the funds will arrive into your Uphold account, typically within 5-7 business days.

A business day is considered every official working day of the week. Another common term is working day. Typically, these are the days between and including Monday to Friday and do not include public holidays and weekends.

If the incorrect number is used the payment will not be lost, but will eventually bounce back to Uphold. This can, however, take time and can cause avoidable delays to your payment, so it's best to get it right first time.
