Swisscom Mobile NATEL® subscribers can now pay their monthly bills electronically over the Internet. Starting today, Swisscom Mobile is offering "yellowbill", the e-banking service developed by PostFinance. To use "yellowbill", NATEL® customers simply require a postpaid subscription for their mobile phone, a "yellow" account with PostFinance and access to a PC with Internet access.
"With "yellowbill" we are able to offer our customers a convenient and reliable service. And by using paperless billing we are also helping to protect the environment" says Urs Schaeppi, Head of Commercial Business at Swisscom Mobile Ltd.
Customers with a "yellow" account can register for "yellownet" and "yellowbill" at www.postfinance.ch/yellownet or www.yellowbill.ch. They then have to register with Swisscom Mobile. The electronic bill can be called up on the PostFinance website "yellownet" under "yellowbill/bill overview". The customer is notified by SMS as soon as the bill is displayed on "yellowbill", and with just three clicks of the mouse the bill is paid. Customers can download or print out a detailed receipt at any time. A demo version can be viewed at www.postfinance.ch/yellownet.
PostFinance handles some 60% of all payments in Switzerland, making it the market leader in payment transactions. Swiss Post is also the country's number one e-banking institution, managing some 480,000 customers and over 700,000 accounts electronically.
