More and more checkouts are equipped for contactless payment. You hold your card up to the payment terminal for a moment, the light goes on and the transaction is complete. PostFinance is the first major financial institution in Switzerland to supplement its debit cards with the contactless payment function. All new PostFinance Cards issued from summer 2015 are equipped with the required technology and can be used immediately. Contactless payment is especially handy for small amounts because up to 40 francs, there's no need to enter a PIN. Which is not only convenient, it also shortens the queue at the checkout.
