Even more banks are counting on TWINT

An increasing number of Swiss banks are counting on TWINT: By now offering their own version of the TWINT app and the direct connection of bank accounts, three further cantonal banks are following in the footsteps of the six largest Swiss Banks. TWINT, the preferred mobile payment app among Swiss banks, offers their clients the most comprehensive mobile payment solution in Switzerland.

As of today, the TWINT app is available to clients of four further major Swiss banks: Credit Suisse, PostFinance, Raiffeisen and Banque Cantonale Vaudoise are introducing the payment app that allows for payments to be debited directly to the user's bank account. The TWINT apps of UBS and Zürcher Kantonalbank have already been available since April. This means that Switzerland’s six biggest banks are now offering their own TWINT app to clients.

Several Swiss banks have independently launched their own version of the TWINT app in the last few weeks. Clients of these banks can download the TWINT app of their principal bank at no charge and connect the TWINT app directly to their bank account, making topping up credit unnecessary. Banque Cantonale Vaudoise, Credit Suisse, PostFinance, Raiffeisen, UBS and ZKB were the first to launch their apps. Genfer Kantonalbank, Obwaldner Kantonalbank and Zuger Kantonalbank are also now on board with TWINT and offering the app to their clients.

The TWINT prepaid app is still available. In this TWINT app, credit can be topped up directly via a bank account at more than 33 regional and cantonal banks.*

With approximately 375,000 registered users and 270,000 transactions each month, TWINT is leading the way. In the past
quarter, transactions in the sum of some CHF 31 million were made via TWINT with an upward trajectory.

“In the coming months, new features are going to be developed and thousands of new acceptance points throughout Switzerland will be created. In doing so, we will further consolidate TWINT’s position as Switzerland’s digital wallet,” adds TWINT CEO Thierry Kneissler.

Now that Genfer Kantonalbank, Obwaldner Kantonalbank and Zuger Kantonalbank have launched their TWINT apps, the merger of Paymit and TWINT is complete. Accordingly, Paymit services are no longer available. Customers have been informed.
