Postfinance basic card for online or paypal?

Dear englishforum colleagues!
I recently got my postfinance card and just have a question, to confirm - it is not possible to connect it to paypal account, or pay online in most of the worldwide, not swiss , online shops?
Do you then pay for mastercardm or visa, for 50 fr, to be able to live normal life in online world?
thanks a lot for your replies, i am just dissapointed because i expected this to work more or less as any maestro card and therefore did not really specifically asked about it.
thank you, have a good day!

You are right, the Post card is not a maestro/visa card, however it is a visaplus card, which means that it works with most ATMs even outside of Switzerland. Some Swiss websites accept it for online payments, but not all.

No, I get them for free.

The only one I actually pay for is AMEX.
