PostFinance charges

i have e-finance/plus set with postfinance but can't work out what they are going to charge me.


i want to transfer money from PF to my UBS account. the price list is here, but i wondered if they would really charge 8chfs on a 100 chf transfer??


can anyone who has done this confirm?

Re: PostFinance charges

No, it's free (page 10 of this document). The high charges are for cash payments, ie someone receives cash "in hand", on in their account.

thanks. i'm not sure i understand the difference. if i transfer 100chf to somebody, it's available on their account to be withdrawn as cash. (i'm assuming this is what they call a 'payment order'. then what is an 'outpayment order'?

The Postman calls at the recipient's home and hands them the cash. It's CHF 20 extra if the postman also checks the person's identity.
