You receive a paper bill with a paying-in slip and have various options for instructing your financial institution to make the payment.
You do not need a computer, nor do you have to register anywhere. You can obtain the necessary forms from your financial institution. Whenever you want to pay your bills, fill out a payment order and present it to your financial institution.
Instruction via online banking
If you have registered for online banking with your financial institution, you can issue the payment order via the internet. For quick and simple processing, we recommend e-billing.
