The QR-bill – Briefly Explained.
- Just like existing payment slips, the QR-bill is divided into two parts – into a receipt (1) and a payment section (2).
- The Swiss QR Code (3) contains all relevant information needed both for invoicing and for payment.
- The perforation (4) means that you can easily separate the payment section and the receipt from the invoice and either pay it into the post office, just as you did before, or send it to your bank with the payment order by mail.
