Contactless payments are the hygienic way to pay

Food stores and pharmacies prefer contactless means of payment

With TWINT, you can use QR codes and Beacons to make contactless payments. This is extremely useful in times of special hygiene measures and social distancing.

By making contactless payments, you can protect those close to you as well as all of the people who are currently contributing in extraordinary ways, i.e. by working in food stores and pharmacies.


Use TWINT and provide neighbourhood assistance

A sense of both responsibility and solidarity are currently required. Many of our fellow human beings hope for our solidarity and support. Do the shopping for grandma or take her dog Barry for a walk. When doing so, make sure to always adhere to hygiene regulations and keep a safe distance from other people.

You can request and receive money from friends and family. Whether you are sending or requesting money: with a photo and a few nice words, you can add a personal and friendly touch to your message.

Together, we will get through this extraordinary situation.

Make contactless payments

Pay at cash registers

At many cash registers, you can pay with TWINT at the payment terminal via QR code. At Coop and other stores, the cash registers are equipped with TWINT Beacons: to make a payment, simply activate Bluetooth, open the app and hold your smartphone up to the TWINT Beacon.

Use contactless means of payment in which you do not need to enter a PIN at the terminal. In this way, you are not just protecting yourself, but you are also preventing the virus and other pathogens from spreading.
