    eInvoicing portal

    You can send and receive invoices electronically via the eInvoicing portal, and manage your data and settings for e-bill yourself. New e-bill customers can register for the service directly online.

    eBill in e-finance

    Ebill is ideal if you receive only a few invoices electronically and do not use your own software. You receive and pay your invoices conveniently via e-finance. To use eBill, activate the service directly in e-finance under Settings > Services.

    Conditions of use

    • Thanks to standardization and automation, receiving e-bills digitally comes with major benefits, and you save time and money. There is no longer any need to manually enter and process invoice data, and you can continue processing invoices in either a fully or semi-automated way. Since the further processing of your accounts payable invoices is automated, you benefit from the major savings potential of e-bills. At the same time, all invoices are in your accounting software, and can be viewed later at any time in your digital archive. Payment transactions are carried out using existing processes, and it is very easy to track all actions thanks to electronic storage.

    • In Switzerland, there are various players involved in sending and receiving e-bills:

      • Software partners offer business software (ERP) through which invoices can be created and processed
      • eInvoicing providers receive digital invoice data and forward it to the right recipient
      • eBill network partners forward digital invoices to the eBill platform, which is implemented in 99 percent of Swiss financial institutions
      • Financial institutions provide customers with access to eBill in e-banking/e-finance

      PostFinance has a wide network of software partners whose software provides an interface with PostFinance for sending and receiving digital invoices, and it is also an eInvoicing provider, an eBill network partner and an eBill-affiliated bank. This means it offers a one-stop shop for all things related to e-bills.

    • The eInvoicing portal makes receiving and managing your e-bills more straightforward. Simply register online and benefit from numerous self-service functions. For instance, you can search for, filter and analyse your bills based on various criteria, or manage your own e-bill settings. New e-bill customers can register for the service directly online.
