Instead of receiving bills in the form of a deposit slip, you can choose to have your bills sent to you electronically. Hundreds of Swiss companies accept payment via e-billing.

E-bills are automatically stored in the online banking service of your checking account or business account, where you can sort and pay them as needed.

In most cases, you can pay an e-bill in a single tap or mouse-click, which saves time as opposed to typing in the reference number on a deposit slip. You have the option of not paying an e-bill if you so choose.

Making payments via a direct debit can be more time efficient, but because bills are paid automatically, you do not have the option of reviewing bills before payments are made.
