How To: Effortlessly Split Bills and Manage Group Expenses

Picture this: you're out at a restaurant with a group of friends, and it's time to split the bill. Instead of fumbling with cash or passing around multiple debit cards, you can use shared payments to make the process a breeze. Here's how:

1. Create a Group Pitch

Start by creating a "pitch" on a platform like Switch. A pitch is a disposable group that allows you to manage shared money in real-time. With Switch, you can easily create a pitch and invite your friends to contribute.

2. Set Up Virtual Debit Cards

Every pitch on Switch creates its own unique bank account and associated virtual debit cards. These virtual cards can be instantly generated and used for online purchases or any transaction using Apple or Google Pay. You can easily create, delete, and manage virtual cards all from the Switch app.

3. Track Payments and Expenses

Switch provides ultimate transparency and shared social accountability. You can see who has paid and who hasn't directly on the app. No more manual tracking with spreadsheets or notes. Switch also offers downloadable transaction statements and integrates with popular accounting platforms like QuickBooks.

4. Utilize Chat Functionality

Switch goes beyond just managing payments. It also offers full chat functionality, allowing you to have conversations about shared expenses directly within the app. You can easily communicate with your group and ensure everyone is on the same page.

5. Send SMS Text Blasts

Need to send out important details about shared plans or expenses? Switch has you covered. You can send SMS text blasts to your group for free, making sure nobody misses any crucial information.

6. Dispose or Reuse the Pitch

Once you're done with a pitch, you can dispose of it. Alternatively, you can reuse the same pitch for recurring expenses or ongoing group activities. Switch gives you the flexibility to use pitches once or over and over again.

7. Enjoy Stress-Free Group Payments

With shared payments on Switch, you can say goodbye to the stress, awkwardness, and hassle of collecting and spending money in groups. It's time to enjoy seamless and transparent group payments.
