How To: Simplify Expense Splitting with Switch

Are you ready to take the stress out of splitting expenses in your group? Here's how you can do it with Switch:

1. Create and Manage Pitches

Switch allows you to create "pitches," disposable groups to manage shared money in real-time. You can easily request any amount or an exact amount from your group members. Plus, Switch lets you utilize a pitch once and dispose of it, or use it over and over again.

2. Enjoy Unique Bank Accounts and Virtual Debit Cards

Every pitch you create on Switch comes with its own unique bank account. And the best part? Switch generates virtual debit cards instantly that are associated with each pitch. These virtual debit cards are designed for online purchases or any purchase using Apple or Google Pay. You can easily create, delete, and manage virtual debit cards right from the Switch app, eliminating the need for fronting money or passing around physical cards.

3. Embrace Transparency and Accountability

With Switch, you can say goodbye to manual expense tracking on spreadsheets or splitwise. Each pitch on Switch is designed for ultimate transparency and shared social accountability. You and your group members can see who has paid and who hasn't, ensuring everyone stays on top of their shared expenses. Plus, you can download transaction statements and integrate Switch with quickbooks, plaid, and more to keep your group organized and accountable.

4. Utilize the Social Component

Switch goes beyond just splitting expenses. It also offers a full chat functionality, allowing you to have conversations about shared expenses within your group. You can even send SMS text blasts for free to ensure that important details about shared plans or expenses are never missed.
