Add-on Pingen noteworthy for shipping

What should I be careful of to conduct smooth transmission?

In order for documents to be transferred from bexio to Pingen right away, the following should be kept in mind.

Enter the country name on its own line.

In order for the documents to be transmitted, the country needs to be specified on its own line. Find out how to make this setting in the article "Address block - standard country notations". It is best to use the setting "Always display country on separate lines".


Important: The number of lines is limited to 5 lines. Example:

  1. bexio AG
  2. Postfach 1
  3. Alte Jonastrasse 24
  4. 8640 Rapperswil
  5. Schweiz



The margin must be at least 5 mm on all sides (top, right, bottom, left). This also applies to necessary graphics and footnotes. The bexio Standard log paper is designed to take this into account. If you use your own letterhead, you must adjust it so that it meets these conditions. Use more about using your own letterhead in the article "Personalize bexio - set customized letterhead"

Recipient address

The recipient address will already be placed in the correct place during transmission with Pingen. In Pingen, you can choose the address positioning options "right" or "left". In bexio itself, the address stays in the position where you have placed it.
