Transfers to Hong Kong bank, branch code / accn number

Anyone transferred to a HK bank?

Because I'm left wondering what the correct way of inputting the information would be, because Hong Kong has a system where the number goes [branch-code]-[acc. number]

e.g (999XXXXXXX) where 999 is the branch code and the rest is the acc number.

The recipient provided me their account number as 999XXXXXX, and told me the branch code is 999 (example not real numbers here of course)

But I'm not sure if in the input fields of payoneer, in account number I should include the whole thing, including the branch-code prefix, or if that will cause their automated system to set the acc number to 999999XXXXXX, because you also have to input the branch code in a required input.
