Orange payment slip payment from abroad

Hi,

I have left CH but bills are still reaching me.
I have no bank account in CH and have no clue how to pay it. Any idea how to pay orange slip?

Contact your creditor, tell them you'd be glad to pay, but you need their full bank details (IBAN) so you can pay them from overseas.

Re: Orange payment slip payment from abroad

Someone else might have a better idea but assuming you have a friend/colleague still in CH you could just scan the bill(s) and send them by email to the person. You will need to get the person's IBAN, BIC and Swift details and send them the money to pay the bill(s).

Once they have a copy of the bill and the money, they can pay the bills via e-banking since they will have all of the details on the slip to do so.

Keep in mind that if sending money from outside CH it will take a few days and you will need to pay the cost of sending the money. Best to send money already in CHF so it is easier for the person.

Re: Orange payment slip payment from abroad

In which currency do you want to pay/where do you have an account?

Rgds, Christian

Re: Orange payment slip payment from abroad

I know this is an old topic, but we've landed in the same boat. Any other ideas on how to handle this? We have recently moved back to the US and have a handful of bills which have been forwarded. I don't really want to ask someone to act as the intermediary for this...

Thanks,
Monica

Easiest would be to transfer it via online banking. You will need the IBAN, BIC and SWIFT numbers to where you will transfer the money. I am sure the bill issuer would be happy to provide you with these details upon request.

Re: Orange payment slip payment from abroad

Easiest is to contact the creditor and ask them for the full IBAN/BIC/SWIFT details.

If it is a Post-Account, you can "generate" the IBAN number itself using the following link:
https://www.postfinance.ch/de/cust/acc/iban.html

If it is a Bank-Account you can "generate" the IBAN number using the following link:
http://www.six-interbank-clearing.co...uiry-iban.html

I would, however, ask the creditor to provide the details (less risk of something going wrong...).

If transferring from abroad just make sure that you bear the costs of the transfer otherwise the bill won't be fully paid...

Hi, have same issue here... moving out of the country soon, and we're afraid will have exactly same problem. How can I know whether it's a post-account or a bank-account? Many thanks!

Most account numbers are given as IBAN today, so you don´t have to know.

However, Postfinance has the "clearance code" (swiss national sort code) 09000. If that appears anywhere, you will know it´s Postfinance.

In an IBAN, that´s the first 5 digits after the first 4. Example:
CHxx09000123456789012

More details about the IBAN structure can be found >>here<<.

Hope that´s roughly what you wanted to know?

Re: Orange payment slip payment from abroad

Since you're leaving you probably won't be using your swiss SIM anymore as it's too expensive to use abroad, right?

If so, you know in advance how much you'll be due until the contract runs out, and could just as well pay the lump sum before you cancel your swiss bank account. Cancelling the contract can be done at the same time.

www.togglemobile.co.uk offer a SIMcard with a Swiss number, where incoming calls are free in many countries (including most EU + USA + Australia).

Unfortunately not possible to port numbers, but you could leave a message on your old number that you´re now available on (xxx) to deal with some last items after you´re gone...

Orange Payment Slips - UK

Is it possible to pay Swiss Orange Payment Slips from a UK bank account ? I notice the payment slip has an account number and a long reference number but is this enough to pay from a UK Halifax account online?

Re: Orange Paymetn Slips - UK

Ideally you need the IBAN. Alternatively account number + BIC/SWIFT. If you only have the bank and account number, that's probably not enough.
