How to pay at the checkout

  • Unlock the screen of your smartphone using your fingerprint, facial recognition, PIN or password

For security reasons, you may have to hold the smartphone up to the terminal a second time. Follow the instructions on your smartphone.

    • E-Wallet is your electronic wallet in the PostFinance App. Once you have activated your digital PostFinance Card in the E-Wallet, you can use your smartphone to pay at payment terminals.

      Follow the instructions on your smartphone: Register for E-Wallet. The available cards will be displayed once you have set up E-Wallet. Click on the plus (+) symbol next to the card to activate it.

    • You can activate a maximum of five cards in your E-Wallet.

    • The digital PostFinance Card uses the same security mechanisms as the physical PostFinance Card with the contactless payment function. You must always unlock your smartphone to make a payment.
    • Nothing. The digital PostFinance Card will continue to work.
    • You can deactivate the digital PostFinance Card yourself in the PostFinance App at any time. If you lose your smartphone, you can have the digital PostFinance Card deactivated by calling 0800 88 88 77 (max. CHF 0.08/min. in Switzerland). Deactivation does not restrict the use of your physical PostFinance Card in any way.
    • The solution is based on NFC technology, which Apple permits only for the use of its own products.
