Having had advice from various people on this forum, I decided to try the wechselstube service and have been using it for a while
Now it appears they are abruptly closing accounts without warning due to Swiss regulations, this is the message I got after sending a routine payment:
"Unfortunately new regulations in the money transfer business have such a great impact on our daily operational service, which in consequence has led to the closing of client log-ins of private individuals. Therefore we did close your log-in after the transfer of the money.

Anyone about to waste time filling out forms or spend 25 CHF having their ID notarized - don't bother.
Also, I can no longer log in and check any of my payment history. There was no warning of this change or anything, which leaves me feeling they are really quite a bunch of amateurs and not to be trusted.
Given that wechselstube is mentioned in so many places on this site, is there any way for the site admins to put a red flag against them? I'm happy to forward a copy of the full email to the people in charge.
