Making payments

Over the past few years, the Swiss payment system has been gradually brought into line with the new ISO 20022 standard. The aim is to unify and streamline the entire payment process by automating the data processing side of things.

We’re here to help if you have any questions.


All Swiss banks are affected by the changes to the country’s payment system.

You can keep entering payment orders as before, using our easy-to-use digital payment tools – BCV-net, BCV Mobile, and eBill – and low- or no-cost functions.

QR bills have permanently replaced red (BV) and orange (BVR) payment slips as of 1 October 2022.
