As a Swisscom customer, you can easily pay via your mobile bill or prepaid credit in many online shops. For example purchases such as apps or public transport tickets with Swisscom Pay or stamps via SMS.
With Swisscom Pay you don’t need a credit card or Paypal: your mobile phone is enough. You pay with your next mobile bill or with prepaid credit. The largest online stores such as Netflix, Spotify, Apple or Google Play all accept Swisscom Pay as a payment method for your films, music, apps, games and much more.
Value-added services, or chargeable information and entertainment services such as weather information, news, ringtones or games can be ordered via SMS/MMS or the Internet. The amount is also charged to your Swisscom mobile bill or deducted from your prepaid credit.
As the result of a new Federal Court ruling, third-party invoicing through the Swisscom bill is subject to the Swiss Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA). This includes value-added services such as 090x numbers and SMS/MMS business numbers as well as Swisscom Pay.
Swisscom has therefore been forced to block the use of value-added services on all business mobile connections.
In order to pay for purchases with your mobile phone bill or prepaid credit, the following monthly limits of your mobile phone bill must not be exceeded: Swisscom reserves the right to change the monthly spending limits at any time. The annual limit for residential customers is capped at CHF 5000.–.
|Adults||Minors under 16 13 years is the minimum age to make purchases via the mobile bill or with prepaid credit|
|New subscription customers For the first two months after you take out a Swisscom mobile contract||250.-||150.-|
|2 months after contract signing||500.-||150.-|
Value-added services, including payment via Swisscom bill or with prepaid credit, are activated by default. If you block the value-added services, then payment with Swisscom Pay is no longer possible. To block or unblock purchases and value-added services, go to My Swisscom Customer Center > Mobile devices > Mobile payment > Related topics.
If you have made a regular purchase through Swisscom Pay and want to cancel this subscription, you can do so in My Swisscom Customer Center or directly via the provider.
Do you know the sender number for the service? Send a SMS with 'STOP ALL' to this number. If you receive unsolicited SMS/MMS of a commercial nature, find out who the sender is and contact them in writing.
If you have used Swisscom Pay and/or billing via SMS/MMS, the purchases will be listed on your bill under the heading “Purchases” and “Other services”.
