What is SWIFT?
The 'Society for Worldwide Inter-bank Financial Telecommunication', legally S.W.I.F.T. SCRL, provides a network that enables financial institutions worldwide to send and receive information about financial transactions in a secure, standardised and reliable environment.

Does Xinja have a SWIFT Code?
Xinja does not currently support in-bound or out-bound payments using the SWIFT network or other inter-bank international payment networks. This means that we don't have a SWIFT code and can't accept funds send to us using one.
The same applies to IBAN or BIC numbers.
