Re: Do Swiss banks use SWIFT or SEPA to send CHF to the Eurozone
Wrong, you can't send CHF payments via SEPA, as SEPA payment is specific to EUR payments only and within Europe. However, you can send EUR payments from Switzerland as a SEPA payment to another EU country as Switzerland is signed up to this Payment Directive although it's not in EU.
All international transfers are done via SWIFT but SEPA payment instructions are sent within the SWIFT messaging instruction.
Think of SWIFT as a big ship and SEPA is a specially designed container, USD transfers will be differently designed container.
Hope this helps.
