PostFinance App: these features will make your life easier

Make payments on the go, check your balance or custody account transactions, manage and block your card – all these and many other financial options are available in just a few clicks via the PostFinance App. The app is constantly being improved and enhanced with new features such as the option to make international payments.

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. In contrast to e-banking, mobile banking also saves you having to drag yourself to your desk to boot up your computer.

In this article, we explain which features of the PostFinance App make your life easier and how PostFinance makes sure the app continues to be improved.

Log in with a smile

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. By using e-finance in the PostFinance App, you can check your account balance anywhere and anytime, make payments and view your custody account transactions. You’ll soon find you can deal with your banking matters really quickly and with very little effort.

Face ID and fingerprint identification are also more than just the gateway to your e-finance account. These features can also be used to make payments online more quickly and conveniently.

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.

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. Just sit back and wait for the notification to arrive! 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.

Tired of simply throwing money down the drain? 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 in the inpayment slip you want to settle and select the relevant debit account. The bill will be approved right away. Say goodbye to needless warning 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.

How your PostFinance App keeps getting better

By making both minor and substantial modifications, PostFinance makes sure your PostFinance App experience keeps improving. This continuous improvement process, which is reflected in regular app releases, always takes customer feedback on board as well. The changes that have been made since the launch of the new app in March 2021 include the following:

International payments

The PostFinance App allows you to make not only domestic payments, but also international payments in over 150 countries and destinations. Additionally, you can choose between Giro international and Giro international urgent if you want it to be fast. Euro transfers in accordance with the SEPA standard are free of charge. With the PostFinance App, international money transfers couldn’t be easier.


Various PostFinance App processes help meet accessibility requirements. The aim is for the app to be fully accessible so that people with disabilities have no issues using the app either. We continue to work on achieving just that.

Investment products

The PostFinance App displays your investment products, fund purchases and fund redemptions. This means you can keep track of your investments at all times when you’re on the go.

User experience

Many processes are even better tailored to customer needs. For instance, you can decide yourself what order your accounts are displayed in, or you can find quicker ways to manage your PostFinance Card or credit cards.

Digital re-registration

Do you have a new smartphone? Thanks to digital re-registration, you can easily transfer your login details from your old device, or via SMS and the PostFinance Card, with no need to set everything up again.

Copy function

You can copy and paste certain fields in the app, for instance your IBAN or BIC.
