Paying by bank transfer

If you are making a payment in a currency other than Swiss Francs (CHF), you will need to make sure it matches the amount we have billed you for. For example, if you make a transfer to our British Pound Stirling (GBP) or Euro (EUR) accounts you should also take into account what the current exchange rate is and whether you will be charged any associated transaction fees by your bank. These should all be factored into your payment so the amount you send is equivelant to your bill in CHF. 

Top tips:

  1. To avoid high fees and poor exchange rates, we recommend transferring your money to our appropriate bank account. (Euros to our Euro account, Pounds to our Pounds account, Francs to our Francs account). We will then transfer the funds to Francs and let you know the final amount booked.
  2. Payments in Euro (to our Euro account) using the IBAN number will incur little to no fees under the SEPA Agreement (same fees as domestic transfers).
  3. Before making any payments, we recommend contacting your bank to check what exchange rate they offer and if you will be charged any transaction fees.
