Conversion tracking of online advertising and analytical assessments of user behaviour on the website.
Since 2004, access for all has been required by the Swiss law covering equality for the disabled (Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz - BehiG), and PostFinance has therefore been consistently implementing this requirement.
This means that blind people are able to make good use of the website and can have content read aloud to them by audio output. Visually impaired people are able to display all text and images in any size. Furthermore, the contrast is optimized everywhere for good legibility. People with motor disabilities can navigate the website with alternative input methods or simply by using the keyboard. Those with hearing difficulties can easily follow videos on our website with the help of subtitles. More and more people with age-related conditions in particular can also benefit from all of these improvements.
Certified in accordance with the highest quality level (AA+)
PostFinance adopts a consistent approach to implementing the latest version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, AA), and in September 2016 it was once again awarded the highest possible quality level (AA+) by the “Access for all” certification body.

Access keys facilitate quick access to certain web pages and content via the keyboard. This is of great benefit to users who prefer using the computer keyboard instead of the mouse.

- 0 = Direct to home page
- 1 = Direct to navigation (within page)
- 2 = Direct to content (within page)
- 3 = Direct to e-finance login
- 4 = Direct to site map
- 9 = Logout
