Can someone please explain a routing number to me.
I am trying to change my bank deposit information as I have changed banks. I filled out Account number, Bank code (which I am assuming we call institution number. It is 3 characters) and Branch code as required, but the error message I get is " Routing number is invalid for the specified bank country" I am confused.
If you do a Google search for "routing number on checks," you'll get dozens of websites with pictures showing you the routing number and account number on checks. If you don't have a checking account, your bank statement might have the complete routing number on it. If not, call your bank and ask what it is.

PS My information is based on an assumption that you're in the US. If not, ignore this post.
As Linda says, ask your bank. This is true no matter what country you're in. The routing number in the US is printed on your checks and is a lot more than 3 numbers. In the UK it is not on your cheque card, but if you print out what Amazon is asking for and take it to your bank, they will know.
Routing number is AFAIK unique to US banks, and it sounds as though you are not in the US. You mention "bank code" as something you have entered -- in the US, that would be the routing number. Most places it is the IBAN.
From what you have quoted, I'm guessing that you somehow led the software to believe your bank is in the US.
You're not using Payoneer, by any chance?

Well, if the O.P. is using Payoneer, then they would use the U.S. as the "banking country" and have a routing code available. But the O.P. should use Payoneer only if direct EFT to their own country is unavailable or notoriously expensive vis-a-vis transaction charges.
