  • What is the difference between the yellow PostFinance TWINT App and the TWINT prepaid app?

    The yellow PostFinance TWINT App is the direct link to your PostFinance account or credit card. It’s therefore only available to PostFinance customers who have registered for the PostFinance Card and the yellow card reader. The TWINT prepaid app will remain an independent prepaid app.

    I am an existing TWINT customer. What happens to my credit?

    The TWINT prepaid app continues to work for payment. However, the credit cannot be transferred to the PostFinance App. Any remaining credit can be released in the TWINT prepaid app via Menu > More > Release.

    Can I install several apps as a user?

    Yes. Simply open the app to be used for payment.  

    The most recently installed app is automatically used for the P2P function (direct money transfer to a person).

    Can the PostFinance TWINT App also be linked to a business account?

    No. The PostFinance TWINT App can only be linked to a PostFinance private account.
