Re: Difference between orange and red payment slips?

Hi guys.
I have another question: I need to send some money to somebody in St Gallen for something she sold me, and she gave me her postal account and her full name+address, saying that it should be enough for the payment. She gave me no BIC.
How am I supposed to do this payment? Is the BIC code for postal accounts some kind of common knowledge?

Pmt to postal acct = red slip, I think. No BIC needed. Too tired to log on to online banking though to validate.

Via online banking you will have to choose the "red" pay-in slip option. There's a field for the account number, add the address and amount and that's enough to submit the payment.

You can go to the post office and fill in a blank red pay-in slip, or get the staff to help you. Note that if you do it this way the seller will most likely expect you to add the post office charges to the total amount - you'll have to check what you agreed upon (if it's Ricardo).

This is an orange pay-in slip:



As mentioned, this has a reference number (see fig 7) which enables the recipient of the money to allocate the payment correctly.
Sometimes there are orange slips that have two reference lines... how should they be handled in ebanking? My UBS ebanking doesn't let me put them in, and I end up taking them to the post office...

Re: Difference between orange and red payment slips?

I don't believe I have seen one with two reference lines. You mean two reference numbers or text reference fields?

It sounds like the authority that controls the colors on these things is brain-dead. Blue and Green were the old colors which would have been hell for the 5-8% of men that are blue/green colorblind and now we have light orangey-red and light reddish-orange. Someone should introduce these geniuses to the color wheel and explain if you want contrasting colors you choose colors on opposite sides...not adjacent.

You need to enter the reference number in field 7 (the upper one) in your e-banking "orange pay-in slip". The one at the foot (field 4 in the image) of the slip is for the post office scanner, I think (?).

I just opened an account in BCGE - Banque Cantonale de Genève, and I don't know if I will be charged for paying my monthly rent, my Health Insurance bill (although I am going to order an automatic payment for this one), my cell phone bill, as well as my credit card bill in case I decide to get a credit card from some other issuer instead of BCGE.
you don't pay any extra charges if you pay in cash at the post office. If there are any charges needing to be payed, they are charged to the recipient.

If you use internet banking, your bank may charge for that. Mine doesn't though as far as I am aware (ZH Kantonalbank)

Thanks a lot, although I don't know any Ricardo so far.

For people with the common red/green weakness the old slips would've been blue/gray-light blue if I understand correctly? But I post in this thread because I've read in the newspaper yesterday that orange and red were chosen because these colors work best for the scanning machines that are currently used.

Re: Difference between orange and red payment slips?

Just found this thread and wanted to thank you all for enlightening me as to the differences - I'd only ever seen the orange slips up to Friday when I received my first red/pink slip!
I do like the way the Credit Suisse online payment system mirrors the colours - all very helpful (although the system itself seems a bit needlessly confusing??!!)
