You can also share a simple web link with your friends for easy payment. Switch ensures transparency by showing who has contributed and who hasn't, eliminating the need for manual tracking.

3. Manage Funds

You can easily create, delete, and manage these cards directly from the Switch app. No more fronting money or passing around debit/credit cards!

4. Stay Organized
