Once your pitch is set up, you can easily request money from your group members.

Each pitch on Switch creates its own unique virtual debit cards. These cards can be easily generated, deleted, and managed directly from the app. They are designed for online purchases or payments using Apple/Google Pay, eliminating the need to share physical cards or keep track of IOUs.

By following these steps and utilizing Switch's shared expense calculator, you can effortlessly manage your group expenses, whether it's for a trip, club event, or any other shared activity.
