Counter payment fees
From 1 March 2023, we will pass on the fees for making payments at a post office counter to our clients.
Many people like to make payments at the post office counter. But did you know that Swiss Post charges a fee for this? Some companies in Switzerland have been passing this fee on to customers for years.
To date, CSS has assumed these charges. But it doesn't seem right to us that all our clients should have to bear a share of the costs generated by those who pay at a post office counter. That's why, starting from 1 March 2023, we will pass on the counter payment fees directly to those clients that actually incur the charges.
The fee depends on the billing amount and is charged for each individual payment slip / QR-bill.
If you don't want to pay the fee, you can switch to one of the free alternatives.

That's why CSS has decided to pass on these costs to the people who generate them.
