Banks and credit unions can require different information to correctly process your BillPay or online transfer. Most banks should only require the information shown above but if your bank asks for BullionVault’s bank account number and ABA routing code please use the following details: Beneficiary account number: 4000124974; ABA routing code:121000248. If you are asked for this information it is still very important to include your BullionVault username on the payment in a memo or payment reference field.

I don't see a reference field to enter my BullionVault username.

If there is no reference field or customer-account-number field in which to enter your BullionVault username, please check with your bank how to proceed. Your username is how your funds will be matched to your BullionVault account.
