    1. Ask the invoice issuer if they offer the CH-DD core direct debit scheme
    2. If so, ask the invoice issuer for a direct debit authorization form
    3. By signing the form, you authorize the biller to debit any amounts due directly from your account on the due date
  • You have the right to cancel debits by written instruction to the Operations Center within 30 days of dispatch of the account statement.

    • With the CH-DD direct debit scheme, you authorize the invoice issuer to debit the invoice amount directly from your PostFinance account on the due date. As the debtor, you provide the invoice issuer with a signed, written payment authorization. A standing order is a regular transfer that you instruct PostFinance to make.

    • This is a very individual matter. It is possible that the invoice issuer will attempt to debit your account again or send you an invoice. It is best to contact the invoice issuer and clarify the next steps.

    • The CH-DD direct debit is executed only if the agreed overdraft limit for direct debits is not exceeded. In general, this is CHF 200.

      The overdraft limit can be adjusted by sending a written request to the PostFinance Operations Center.
