bridge21 delivers pesos directly into bank accounts in Mexico using the SPEI system.
To use bridge21, you must know the 18 digit CLABE number where you are sending pesos and the name on the bank account.
Ask your recipient for their CLABE number. They can get this account number from their bank account statement or by calling their bank. They should look or ask for the "CLAVE interbancaria de 18 dígitos".
Sometimes banks may be confused and provide you with a SWIFT code. This is used for international wires and is NOT what bridge21 needs to deliver pesos. Ask for the "CLAVE interbancaria de 18 digitos" instead.
Here is what each of the 18 digits in the CLABE actually mean:
- First three digits: This is the “Bank Code”. It identifies the correct bank in Mexico.
- Next three digits: This is the “Branch Office Code”. It identifies the correct bank branch.
- Next eleven digits: This is the bank account number for your recipient.
- Final digit: This is a control number based on the first three sets of numbers. It prevents typos.
