    Security

    The PostFinance App offers you the same security as e-finance. Login consists of two steps: Depending on your requirements, you will need to log in to the fast service with a fingerprint or password, or log in to the integrated e-finance with a PIN (if Mobile ID has been activated) or with the PostFinance Card and card reader.

  • What are the preconditions for using the PostFinance App?

    • iPhone or Android smartphone
    • iPad or Android tablet
    • Swiss SIM card for registering for the fast service

    How can I register for the PostFinance App or for the fast service?

    In order to gain access to full range of functions in the fast service, you have to complete a one-off registration. A PostFinance Card and card reader are required for this.

    How secure is access to e-finance via the PostFinance App?

    Access to e-finance and e-trading via the app fulfils the highest security standards. Just like access via the desktop browser, the app login is a two-step process (mobile ID or PostFinance Card and card reader). Login to the fast service requires a fingerprint, Face ID (only for iOS devices from iPhone X onwards) or password. The PostFinance Card and card reader are required for registration.

    What is the difference between the e-finance and fast service areas in the PostFinance App?

    With the fast service, you have access to selected functions for which you require a password, fingerprint or Face ID (only for iOS devices from iPhone X onwards) once you have completed the one-off registration. Access to e-finance via the PostFinance App allows you to use to the full range of e-finance functions.

    How can I send money to a mobile phone number?

    If recipients are also registered for the fast service, they will receive confirmation of receipt via SMS as soon as the amount has been sent successfully. Recipients who have not registered will be asked to send their IBAN to PostFinance.

    What is the maximum amount I can send?

    You can send a maximum of CHF 500, EUR 500 or USD 500 per day.

    How can I scan ISR with the App?

    How can I scan ISR with the App?

    "Scan + Pay" tile via desktop and the fast service

    Using the fast service (weak authenticated area) in the smartphone app, you can scan inpayment slips with reference numbers (ISR) and then approve and pay them later in e-finance (strong authenticated area). This enables you to use your smartphone as a scanner and approve your invoices on a computer or laptop.

    To use this function, you need to register for the fast service and link it with e-finance. The “Scan inpayment slips” function will then appear on the fast service homepage. Scanned inpayment slips appear a few seconds later in e-finance in the “Scan + Pay” tile, where you can then check and approve them.

    Once approved, invoices that are marked as pending orders can still be modified until their execution.

    "Scan + Pay" tile via app

    You can also scan inpayment slips with reference numbers (ISR) directly in e-finance using the app. The main account is selected as the debit account by default, but you can select another debit account.

    Click "Scan now" to activate the camera on your device.

    Hold your smartphone or tablet’s camera over the code line of the inpayment slip. As soon as a code line has been captured you will be taken to the next step.

    If the code on the inpayment slip cannot be read, select "Enter manually".
