Then, fill out the contact information for your Recipient. You'll need to enter their full legal name, email address, and phone number. You'll also need to choose the Recipient type (commonly a seller) and this is also where you can enter a file number for your records.

Next, you can add the property associated with the transaction (optional), and then select the Underwriter being used. Also enter the account information you've received from your customer here, including their routing number and account name and number. When you enter the routing number, you'll receive an immediate notice of what bank that is associated with, and if there is a correspondent bank needed.

Finally, there are few more optional fields that can be filled out, including expected settlement date, transaction value, and a spot to enter a custom message to your client. Click Next and you'll be brought to a final screen to double check all of the information is correct.
