Bank Routing Symbol Transit Number

oDesk Fund Transfer using Unionbank EON Card by www.maxginez3.com
Working with an oDesk environment is indeed a very convenient workplace where you can do your task in your own pace although there may be some cases that you really need to be online with regards to your client's time zone.

I have just received my UNIONBANK eon card because I want to withdraw my oDesk Salary directly to my Bank account. The procedure starts by adding another withdrawal method in the Wallet Dashboard. Then it will prompt you asking the BRSTN code. oDesk's bank supports funds transfer to any registered bank here in the Philippines. And because I don't know the code of my Bank, I asked for help and see a list of Banks available here in the Philippines.

The history of Routing Transit Number (RTN) was originated in 1910 by the American Bankers Association. It  was a 9 digit code of a certain bank in the United States. This number used to be printed on the bottom of Bank checks identifying the Bank on which the amount was drawn. The purpose of this code is to facilitate the sorting and shipment of bank checks. The Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) also used this process during funds transfers, bill payments, direct deposits, and other automated transfers.

Here in the Philippines, Local Funds Transfer (LFT) use BRSTN Code, (Bank Routing Symbol Transit Number) It is a 9-digit code identifying the Country, City, and Bank Name.

Here is a list of BRSTN code in alphabetical order; but if you may have doubt on this list, you may confirm the code by contacting your bank and ask for their BRSTN.
