When it comes to splitting the bill, Switch offers a user-friendly interface and a range of features that simplify the process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you split the bill effortlessly:

1. Create a Pitch

Start by creating a pitch on Switch. This pitch will serve as a temporary group for managing shared expenses. Specify the details, such as the purpose of the pitch and the desired amount to be collected.

2. Invite Friends

Once the pitch is created, invite your friends to join. They can easily contribute to the pitch by paying via Apple/Google Pay or card through a simple web link. Alternatively, they can download the Switch app for access to more advanced money sharing features.

3. Track Contributions

Switch provides transparency and shared social accountability. You can easily track who has paid into the pitch and who hasn't. No more manual tracking with spreadsheets or notes. Switch keeps everything organized and visible for everyone in the pitch.

4. Communicate and Coordinate

Switch's full chat functionality allows you to have conversations with your friends about shared expenses. Stay connected, discuss important details, and ensure that everyone is on the same page. You can also send SMS text blasts to keep everyone updated on the latest developments.

5. Manage Virtual Debit Cards

Each pitch on Switch creates its own unique bank account, with associated virtual debit cards. These cards can be generated instantly and used for online purchases or any purchase using Apple or Google Pay. Easily create, delete, and manage cards, eliminating the need to pass around debit or credit cards.

6. Dispose or Reuse

After the expenses are settled, you have the option to dispose of the pitch or reuse it for future activities. Switch gives you the flexibility to choose.

7. Stay Organized

Download transaction statements and history, and integrate with popular accounting tools like QuickBooks and Plaid to keep your group finances organized and accountable.

A Convenient and Empowering Solution
