Banks are increasingly relying on a partnership
with SIX Payment Services
Banks aim to offer their business customers the most comprehensive range of services possible. They require support in all financial matters - especially small and medium-sized companies. In addition to advice on accounts, loan financing and subsidies, payment transactions are also of considerable interest to business customers. They require efficient and reliable payment services. The partnership with SIX Payment Services allows banks to cover this area and to strengthen their capabilities at the same time.
Thanks to cooperation with SIX Payment Services, banks can offer their business customers additional payment transaction services. The offer includes innovative solutions on acceptance products, terminals, e-commerce and other comprehensive services. This makes it easy to accept all major national and international credit and debit cards as well as alternative means of payment. All these modern payment solutions are available to customers of partner banks on special terms. Specialised support completes the range of services offered.
"Cooperation with banks is very important to us. It allows our banking partners to expand their range of services to include cashless payments in the business customer area, and thus provide their customers with an even better level of service. At the same time, we at SIX Payment Services acquire new customers", says Adrian Elmiger, Head of Sales Switzerland, about the partnerships with banks.
Benefits of a partnership between SIX Payment Services and financial services providers:
- A complete package consisting of payment service providers and acquiring is on offer
- Special terms are passed on directly to the bank's customers
- Improved customer retention thanks to the extended product range
- Payments are made via the existing account held at the partner bank
"Valiant's objective is to make financial life easier for Swiss SMEs. To do this, it relies on the experience of its long-standing partner, SIX Payment Services, to deliver solutions for online retail and card payments via terminals. We are a typical retail and SME bank with many business customers. It is, therefore, important to us to have a partner on our side who stands out thanks to rapid service, expert advice and efficient decision-making."

E-commerce solutions are particularly in demand
The cooperation with SIX Payment Services also allows banks to offer their customers attractive solutions for card acceptance in web shops. This is also supported by digital transformation in banking: Banks are increasingly turning to digital products for their customers.
The primary target group for e-commerce offers are small and medium-sized businesses that want to set up a new web shop and are, therefore, looking for a payment solution for this web shop. Even companies with an established e-commerce presence that already have a web shop and want to take advantage of the favourable terms offered by their bank are set to benefit. This also includes merchants who have so far only offered on-account purchases or alternative means of payment.
