Swiss payment systems


Just ranting here but I am seriously tired of the Swiss banking system and how outdated they are for a "Banking" country. Like seriously...Orange slips and wire transfers for most payments? Were living in 2021, and all the mobile payments and so called online banking is just an extension of these strangely outdated methods.

The reality is that Switzerland is only known for its private banking, not its actual banking service. Please modernize it! And I already know people are going to come in say this is how its done in Switzerland bla bla bla. All I see is an out dated system.

All in all, my hypothesis is that Switzerland adopts change very slowly (for the better and for the worse). It involves its strong national identity, and interpreting change as attacks towards its sovereignty.
