Digitec is removing credit card surcharge

Digitec is going to absorb credit card costs which may not be necessarily good for customers. Others might be forced to do the same.


With immediate effect, digitec is waiving all fees for payments made with Visa, MasterCard, international Maestro card or Diners Club.

Good news for our customers: As per now, we are no longer charging fees for payments made with Visa, MasterCard and Diners Club credit cards. In addition, we are also waiving all charges for payments made with international Maestro cards in our shops.

To get straight to the point: Our range of products has not become more expensive because of this. The measure was taken in response to numerous customer requests. It is also the result of successful negotiations with our payment service providers.

The following payment methods are free of charge at digitec/Galaxus with immediate effect:

  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Maestro
  • Postcard
  • Advance payment
  • Migros Bank
  • V Pay
  • Diners Club
Invoice payment for business customers and public institutions
Cash payment in our shop

Unfortunately, costs for the following payment methods are so high that we are unable to eliminate them at the moment. But we’re working on it!

  • PayPal
  • PostFinance E-Finance
  • Invoice payment for business customers

Re: Digitec is removing credit card surcharge

I just bought an SSD and TWINT was not available as payment option. At least CreaditCard showed 0.00% of interest.
