New User Experience for Debit Cards

SIX is offering card-issuing banks in Switzerland the new generation of debit cards: Debit Mastercard and Visa Debit. These cards can be used all around the world and meet the highest security requirements. Additional application options create a new user experience. As well as standard functions (cash withdrawals, contactless payments), the debit cards can now also be used for online purchases and reservations and allow for full transaction monitoring, as they are debited directly from the card holder’s bank account. Thanks to connections with Apple, Samsung, and Google Pay, card holders can pay directly with their smartphones.
