How to Wire Funds

Business account holders can initiate wire transfers online via Columbia Bank’s online business banking service. One of the easiest ways to setup a wire transfer online is by using the ‘templates’ feature. The most common template for domestic transfers is the ‘Fed Wire’ template. The online interface allows users to also initiate a single wire transfer (no-template required), view the status of a wire transfer, and also review/approve of incoming or outgoing wire transfers. In-depth instructions (in PDF form) detailing how to perform all of these actions via the online interface, can be read at this link. For answers to specific questions regarding wire transfers, please get in touch with a customer service representative. A domestic/international wire transfer FAQ is also available here. For domestic transfers using the ‘Fed Wire’ template, the following details are required:

  • Amount of the wire
  • Currency (USD)
  • Value date (date the wire is going to be sent)
  • Debit account (select which account to debit)
  • Receiving bank ABA/ID
  • Name of receiving bank
