Harmonization of payment transactions

The journey into the new world of payment transactions

The harmonization of payment transactions in Switzerland is a scheme being undertaken by the entire Swiss financial center. PostFinance is making an active contribution to shaping the future of payment transactions. The aim is to systematically plan the transition to the new world of payment transactions and ensure that the changeover runs smoothly for you. PostFinance will accompany you on the way to this goal: From 2016 until the end of 2017 we will offer a parallel phase during which you can gradually switch to the new formats.
