Hi there,When giving out my account number Ive noticed the norm is 9 digits. should I be giving only my 7 digits, or adding 00 at the front?

Depends on the bank. Some will accept the 7 but if not just add zeros in front Smiley Very Happy

Thanks for your question @Katetulip and your contribution @megrbrugess! This is correct, the account number is 7 digits, if for some reason this is not accepted and you're required to enter 9 digits, you can simply add 00 to the begining of the account number (ie: if your account number is 1234567 you can enter it as 001234567).
