    Digital invoicing

    Create secure and individual payment links with your own URL. These links contain all the details required for payment, such as the currency, amount and other user-defined fields.

    All common methods of payment (PostFinance payment types, Visa and Mastercard) are already integrated and have a standard commission rate. You also have the option of activating PayPal. The fixed commission fee does not apply to PayPal.
