I’ve been trying for years to figure out how I in switzerland can get what I was used to in my home country 15+ years ago: Having regular bills automatically payed rather than having to manually approve them.
I’m on my second bank (first credit suisse and now post finance) and I still have to every week/month go in and approve the bills I receive electronically in webbank - that is truly a waste of time for regular bills like phone, internet, mortgage, taxes etc.
Where I lived before I just signed up the bill for automatic payment and it would happen automatically and I had about ~14 days to react if they for some reason took too much.
In swiss banks (at least postfinance and credit suisse) I’m told I’m to approve all the payments for my own security - which I just find so outdated; I really don’t want to have to spend time on logging in to manage payments UNLESS it is an exceptional/non-ordinary payment.
Any tips much appreciated
