Payment of NATEL® bills over the Internet

03 December 2003

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.

"yellowbill" is an electronic billing system and provides an alternative to paper billing. While Swisscom Fixnet customers have benefited from "yellowbill" since June 2003, this free service is now being offered to Swisscom Mobile customers with a NATEL® subscription (excl. NATEL® easy and corporate). To use "yellowbill", customers must have a "yellow" account with PostFinance and be registered with "yellownet" and "yellowbill". Registration is free and using the service is simple: three mouseclicks is all it takes to settle a bill.

"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.

Here's how:

Customers with a "yellow" account can register for "yellownet" and "yellowbill" at or 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
