Adding TransferWise Reimbursement Account

MarkStevensMarkStevens Posts: 2Expensify Customer

I am trying to add an account for receiving expense reimbursement through TransferWise.

My first attempt resulted in the expense payment failing.

TransferWise has created a USD account for me and I have a routing number, ACH routing number and account number. TransferWise also state that the account name should be TransferWise FBO otherwise payment will be refused.

I have setup the account as a checking account using the routing number (not the ACH routing number) with the account name and number as specified.

I am looking for advice on how I can get this working. Which account should I be using (Deposit or Checking) and which routing number is the correct one to enter?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi @MarkStevens, I'm fairly sure there are a few other users on the Community who have made use of a TransferWise account before, but I'll speak to how I believe it should be set-up, and because pictures can speak a thousand words faster than I can I've just included these below:

    TransferWise Account:

    Deposit Account set-up:

    Deposit Account finished:

    Hopefully that helps! Obviously this isn't really Justin Timberlake's borderless account. The numbers here are fabricated.

    Just confirming that I tried this last week and have just received the transfer as expected.

    Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
