Payment methods in Switzerland

Hello everyone,

Once you’re settled in Switzerland, you will need to make some basic purchases, like groceries or pay bills. Hence, it is essential to know the payment methods available in your host country.

Which are the most common payment methods in Switzerland? Why would you prefer some forms over others?

Does the amount of money or the type of paid services (groceries, bills, rent, etc.) determine the choice of payment methods?

Are there any apps at your disposal which make the payment process easier in Switzerland?

Can certain foreign currencies be used to make payments?

Have your habits in terms of payment methods changed since moving to Switzerland?

Thanks for sharing your experience,

Priscilla
