E-Bills

Pay your bills at the click of a mouse.

What Is an E-Bill?

Electronic bills are replacing conventional paper-based invoicing. With e-bills, you can receive, check, and pay your bills in Swiss francs and euros in Direct Net anywhere in Switzerland.

Billers send invoices in electronic, digitally signed format to SIX Paynet Ltd. Before forwarding invoices on to Direct Net, SIX Paynet Ltd checks the electronic bills it receives for integrity, authenticity, and signatory authority and stores them in a long-term archive online. This ensures that legal requirements on VAT compliance and accounting are fulfilled. You then receive your e-bills in the secure Direct Net environment.

In order to receive e-bills and take advantage of the services listed, you must have a fee-based E-Bill Business Package agreement with SIX Paynet Ltd.
