QR-bill – simpler, faster, more efficient
With the introduction of the QR-bill on 30 June 2020, payment services in Switzerland and Liechtenstein are being modernised. The QR code printed on the QR-bill contains all the necessary information for automatically paying and posting invoices.
Over the past few months, banks have updated their systems to process QR-bills starting the end of June. Private individuals do not have to make any changes. Anyone who is accustomed to paying bills at the post office or sending a payment slip and payment order to their bank can continue to do so with the QR-bill. But the QR-bill offers major benefits to anyone using e-banking or mobile banking on their smartphone. Scanning the QR code and a few clicks are all it takes to release a payment.
The new bill will gradually replace the existing red and orange payment slips. Old payment slips can continue to be used, however. QR-bills offer many advantages to both payers and payees. They are convenient because scanning the QR code is so simple. The new bill is both fast and efficient. A few clicks are all it takes to release a payment, replacing the tedious task of typing in account and reference numbers and significantly reducing a common source of errors.
