Give your customers the option to save TWINT as the automated method of payment so that they can process regular payments quickly and conveniently. Regardless of whether they are shopping online or a regular payment is due, the amount can be debited via the “User-on-File” solution.

What are the options? 

The “User-on-File” payment method (“UoF”) is available in two different versions. Choose for yourself which option is best suited to your online shop or web app.

Option 1: User-on-File “Pay & Register”

Optimal for: Online shops and (web) apps that collect payments via a subscription model or recurring payments
With the “User-on-File Pay & Register” option, this takes no time at all: Here, TWINT can be optionally or mandatorily saved as the automated payment method during a payment process for future payments. Payments will now be automatically charged to the TWINT account. This option is particularly practical for customers who make regular payments, for example for subscriptions.

How your customers can save TWINT as the automated payment method:

  1. The customer selects TWINT as the payment method at the checkout.
  2. They then go through the usual payment processes in the TWINT app.
  3. Now, when confirming the payment in the app, they can save TWINT as the automated payment method for future payments at the same time.
  4. They have now saved TWINT as an automated payment method in your online shop or app. The settings for these payments can be managed by customers themselves in the TWINT app.

Option 2: User on File «Registration Only»

Optimal for: Online shops and (web) apps 
Do you have an online shop or a (web) app with a login area and corresponding customer profiles?
With User-on-File “Registration Only”, your customers can – independently of a payment process – save TWINT as the automated payment method for future payments. Once it has been selected as the payment method, your customers can in the future pay in just two short steps: They select TWINT as the payment method and then confirm the payment via the “Pay” button.
