    Question What is a "swift code"?

    Hey, I need to update my moneybookers account. I want to link my South African account at absa with them, but they want a swift code. What is that, and where will I get it now?

    Its a unique code to each bank branch, as far as I know. And I think you can only get it by calling the bank?

    I speak under correction, but I think that ABSA's swift code is ABSAZAJJ.

    EDIT: Yep, it seems that's the code. Have a look at the Google search results found via http://tr.im/swift

    You need a swift code for international money transfers.

    I once wondered what a swift code is since a company provided it along with account details for EFT. I asked them and they said it's for people from other countries to transfer money.
