Splitting Expenses Made Easy

Managing group expenses can be a headache, but Switch streamlines the process with its user-friendly interface and powerful features. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to efficiently split expenses using Switch:

1. Create a Pitch

Start by creating a pitch on Switch for the specific group expense you want to manage. Whether it's a shared dinner, a vacation, or monthly bills with your roommates, Switch allows you to easily request and collect money from your friends. Specify the amount you need and provide a brief description of the expense.

2. Share the Pitch

After creating the pitch, share it with your friends via a simple web link or by inviting them to download the Switch app. They can then pay into the pitch using Apple/Google Pay or their debit/credit cards. Switch generates unique bank accounts and virtual debit cards for each pitch, making it easy to keep track of expenses.

3. Track Payments and Expenses

With Switch, you can see who has paid and who hasn't at a glance. No more manually tracking expenses on spreadsheets or notes. Switch provides transparency and shared social accountability, so everyone in the group can stay organized and accountable. You can also download transaction statements and integrate with popular accounting tools like QuickBooks.

4. Communicate with the Group

Switch offers a full chat functionality that allows you to have conversations about shared expenses within the app. You can discuss important details, ask questions, and keep everyone in the loop. Additionally, Switch allows you to send SMS text blasts to the group for free, ensuring that no one misses important updates or reminders.

5. Manage virtual debit cards

Switch's virtual debit cards are designed for online purchases and can be easily created, deleted, and managed within the app. No more hassle of passing around physical cards or fronting money. You can generate virtual debit cards instantly and use them for shared expenses or any purchase that accepts Apple/Google Pay.

6. Reuse or Dispose of Pitches

Once an expense is settled, you can choose to reuse the same pitch for future expenses or dispose of it if it's a one-time expense. Switch gives you the flexibility to tailor your pitches to your specific needs, ensuring that you have full control over your group expenses.

7. Compare Switch to other apps

While Splitwise and other expense management apps are popular choices, Switch offers a more comprehensive solution for managing group expenses. With its seamless integration of payment, communication, and expense tracking features, Switch empowers you to create incredible experiences without the stress and hassle of collecting and spending money in groups.
