Paying for shopping directly at farm shops has never been so easy. Thanks to the collaboration with the Swiss Farmers’ Union, cashless pay-ments can now be made in over 1000 farm shops throughout Switzerland. Consumers now only need to have the TWINT app on their smartphone to pay for their shopping. A list of shops now offering TWINT as a payment method is available at vomhof.ch.

Would you like to be able to pay for your shopping quickly and easily, even if you have left your wallet or purse at home or only have large notes? Thanks to the collaboration with the Swiss Farmers’ Union, you can now do so in farm shops, at flower fields and at weekly markets throughout Switzerland. All you need to pay for your purchases at farm shops is a smartphone and TWINT. Over 1000 farm shops are already offering the possibility of using the cashless payment system.

Details of all of the farm shops that offer TWINT as a payment method can be found at vomhof.ch.

With over 1800 farms, “Vom Hof” is the largest platform for direct marketers and is a service offered by the Swiss Farmers’ Union. The national online portal offers farmers a platform on which they can advertise their home-made wares – such as jams, pastas and bread as well as services like party rooms and catering – to the general public free of charge

TWINT is available for everyone to use. Simply download TWINT, register, open the app and then scan the QR code. Pay for your shopping via TWINT – the payment will be made directly to the recipient and you can bag up your shopping right away.

For the farm shops, this constitutes a secure and fast alternative to the little cash registers that they normally have. A complicated infrastructure is thus not required for collecting money, which also means that the risk of theft is reduced.
