In all cases I heard of it's indeed caused by missing security features as explained by Rockoyster. What kind of tickets are you trying to buy? Nearly all rail products can be purchased elsewhere, through retailers more geared to tourists (the SBB website is mostly designed for residents). You'll find options on all our pass and ticket pages. For regular point to point tickets, please see www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/switzerland /price, for example.
As for purchases in Switzerland: should your card still not work in the ticketing machines, then you can purchase at a staffed ticket desk.
