Switzerland’s biggest banks offer their own version of the TWINT app. Prior to downloading this app, please search in the App Store for the name of your bank together with the term “TWINT”. You can find an overview at www.twint.ch.
‘Prepaid TWINT & other banks’ is the mobile payment solution for everybody whose principal bank does not offer its own TWINT app. You can conveniently link your account with more than 30 cantonal and regional banks to the Prepaid TWINT app. Alternatively, you can save any other bank account via direct debit (LSV). You can also top up your credit using a deposit slip or via credit codes.
If you would like to use TWINT with your credit card, you can also use UBS TWINT. It does not matter whether you are a UBS client or not.
In order to make payments using ‘Prepaid TWINT & other banks’, you need to top up your credit in advance:

Ratings and Reviews
Not very good
Not a good system. Swiss banks too stubborn to give up a bad idea. Payment is slower using this silly app rather than using a card.
Swiss banks: welcome to 2016, use Apple Pay that actually works better.
An der Kasse ist TWINT absolut unzuverlässig und dauert auch zu lange. Ganz peinlich ist es, wenn es dann nicht funktioniert, was leider viel zu oft vorkommt. Gut funktioniert es einzig beim QR-Code scannen, z.B. beim Selecta-Automat oder online.
Twint war einmal richtig gut
Schade, dass das Aufladen am Postomat nicht mehr möglich ist. Dafür greift die App neu in meine Kontakte. :-(
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
