PostFinance App: these features will make your life easier

Make payments on the go, check balances or custody account transactions, manage and block your cards or log in to e-finance – all these and many other financial options are available in a flash via the PostFinance App.

Waiting for the tram? Why not take a quick look at your account balance. In the queue at the supermarket? Why not quickly pay a bill in the mobile banking app. You can use mobile banking to manage your finances wherever you happen to be and keep your money under control at all times. In this article, we explain which features of the PostFinance App make your life easier.

Log in with fingerprint or Face ID

Access your e-finance account in the PostFinance App quickly and easily, no matter where you are – all you need is your fingerprint or Face ID, and you’ll be logged in in no time. The login procedure that recognizes your facial features or fingerprint is free of charge, and only needs to be activated once. After that, you no longer need to enter a password to get into e-banking. Thanks to fingerprint and Face ID, you can also approve your online purchases conveniently and securely.

Whichever method you select for the app, multi-factor authentication is used, and the most stringent security requirements will be met. What’s more, an encrypted connection is provided between your device and PostFinance.

Paying in online shops

You’d be hard pressed to find an easier way to shop than with just a few clicks from the comfort of your sofa. To make your digital shopping experience even better, use the PostFinance App to make easy payments with Face ID or your fingerprint. This will save you having to enter your credit card or PostFinance Card number. With 3D Secure, Mastercard®/Visa and PostFinance also provide a secure way to make payments online.

Online shopping: PostFinance Pay as a new payment method

Step by step, PostFinance Pay is being introduced as the new PostFinance online payment method. It is integrated directly into the PostFinance App. Would you like to find out more about how to pay in Swiss online shops with your PostFinance App in future?

Push notifications to help you keep track

Urgently waiting for a payment, or do you want to know how your shares are performing? If so, activate push notifications in the PostFinance App to keep a constant eye on your account activities. It’s easy to set up the notifications you need in e-finance or in the PostFinance App. Would you prefer an alternative way of receiving push notifications to the mobile app? You can also receive notifications to your e-mail address or as texts to your mobile phone.

Scan + Pay for invoices

It’s happened to us all: a bill arrives, but you don’t get around to paying it straight away. That can wait! Let’s just leave it until tomorrow, or maybe the day after. Sometimes, however, you end up completely forgetting about it. After the first one, a second invoice arrives a few days later, including a warning fee.

With PostFinance’s Scan + Pay feature, you can pay your bills in an instant, which means you’ll no longer have an excuse to keep putting them off: simply scan the QR-bill you want to pay and select the relevant debit account. The bill will be approved right away. Say goodbye to unnecessary reminder fees.

Block your cards with ease

It’s a real pain when your PostFinance Card or credit card goes missing or is stolen. But if you act fast, you can prevent your card from being used by fraudsters. In the PostFinance App, you can block your PostFinance debit cards and credit cards quickly and easily in the event of an emergency. You can also order a replacement card there and then. You can block and unblock cards free of charge. Find out what else you can do to minimize the risk of something happening to your debit card, prepaid card or credit card in our article “How to use your card – with these five tips you’ll be safe, not sorry”.

The “Manage cards” option in the PostFinance App also provides other useful features, for instance adjusting your card limits or geoblocking, which you can use to limit cash withdrawals abroad.

Change your address and find documents with ease

Have you moved house, or are you looking for a bank or tax document?

  • Address changes: you can register your new address conveniently via the PostFinance App by clicking on “More” (the three-dot icon at the bottom of the screen) and “My data”.
  • Documents: you can find your documents such as account statements, credit advice documents, securities statements and tax certificates by navigating to “More” and clicking on “Documents”. If you select the magnifying glass symbol at the top right, you can filter the documents by categories such as investments, account and taxes.
