Swiss Solidarity to accept donations via Paymit

Source: SIX Payment Services

SIX is introducing the new and simple way of making a donation together with Swiss Solidarity.

From now on, donations to all of Swiss Solidarity's current collections can also be paid by smartphone. All Paymit users can support the humanitarian relief in disaster areas or children's aid provided by Swiss Solidarity very easily by using Paymit as a payment means.

Swiss Solidarity, Switzerland's largest charitable organization, has opted for the Paymit mobile payment solution. "It is important for us to offer donors the convenience they desire. The demand for mobile and simple payments has become clearly apparent over time. We now have a straightforward solution with Paymit." says Catherine Baud-Lavigne, head of finance at Swiss Solidarity.

At the same time, UBS has activated a donation function for users of UBS Paymit in its Paymit application. Donors can transfer donations quickly and easily via the donation function. The following relief organizations are currently already accepting the new UBS Paymit donation function: Save the Children, Swiss Red Cross, UBS Optimus Foundation, Unicef and WWF.

The update of the ZKB eBanking Mobile app released by Zürcher Kantonalbank at the start of December includes the donate function. ZKB Paymit clients are thus able to easily and quickly support the relief organizations Swiss Solidarity, Save the Children, Swiss Red Cross, Unicef and WWF. In the future, a collaboration with more partners is planned.

Paymit combines the features security, simplicity and standardization for all Paymit users, regardless of which bank they are with. Using if for "donations" will serve to prepare it for use in retailing. Paymit is and remains the ideal introduction to digital payment.

Paymit is also still looking to the future. The participating banks and SIX are busy working together with Swisscom to prepare it for use in retailing (point-of-sale, in-app and e-commerce). The aim is to work with retailers to make Paymit widely accepted as a means of payment as quickly as possible.
