You can only buy a Salt pre-pay at a Salt store.
There is a Salt Store at Zurich Airport -
Salt Store - Shopping Centre Landside, Postfach 2433, 8058 Zürich-Flughafen
Open Monday - Sunday 08:00 - 21:00. See here for map www.salt.ch/en/store-locator/?search=Zurich
You can find location of other Salt stores here www.salt.ch/en/store-locator (You can't buy the SIM at their partner outlets unfortunately)
You pay CHF 10 for the SIM and it comes with CHF 20 credit. Hard to believe I know. Every day you use data they charge you CHF 2 so the initial CHF 10 purchase gives you 10 days internet access (providing you don't use up credits on phone calls and SMS).
You can find out detail of the offer at shop.salt.ch/en/plans/ prepay/ (you need to cancel the 50% discount pop-up to see the real deal).
The only problem I had was getting the hotspot to work. I have a Dual SIM phone. My Telstra (Australian) SIM was in slot 1 and the Salt SIM in slot 2. I could connect to the hotspot on my phone but no internet connection on the connected iPad. I swapped the SIMs over and the tethering problem is fixed.
Today I was in Locarno and this is the only place I have experienced poor (3G-only) signal.
