This may sound a trivial question, but just wanted to ensure before purchase of Online ticket.

The person travelling has Swiss Half fare Card. I am not travelling with him.

Can I buy ticket for this person Online for beforehand so that he need not buy ticket at the counter.

Thanks and regards,

Yes, the ticket can be bought beforehand - as long as the traveler has both the ticket and the Swiss Half Fare Card on them when they travel.
