Splitting bills and sharing expenses doesn't have to be complicated. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the process:

1. Create a Pitch

Start by creating a pitch on Switch. A pitch is a disposable group that allows you to manage shared money in real-time. It creates its own unique bank account and virtual debit cards, making it easy to track and manage funds.

2. Invite Participants

Invite your friends or group members to join the pitch. They can easily pay into the pitch using Apple/Google Pay or a card on a simple web link. You can also send out SMS text blasts to ensure everyone is aware of their share of the bill.

3. Track Payments

Switch provides ultimate transparency and shared social accountability. You can see who has paid and who hasn't, eliminating the need for manual tracking. This makes it easy to keep everyone accountable and ensures no one falls behind on their payments.

4. Communicate and Discuss

Use the chat functionality in Switch to discuss shared expenses and keep everyone in the loop. This makes it easy to clarify any questions or details about the bill.

5. Settle the Bill

Once everyone has paid their share, you can easily settle the bill. Switch allows you to generate transaction statements and history, making it easy to keep records and stay organized.

6. Dispose or Reuse the Pitch

After settling the bill, you can choose to dispose of the pitch or reuse it for future expenses. This flexibility allows you to easily manage multiple shared expenses.

7. Enjoy Stress-Free Bill Sharing

By following these steps and using Switch, you can enjoy stress-free bill sharing. No more fronting money or passing around debit/credit cards. Switch takes care of the hassle, so you can focus on enjoying the experience.
