How to Best Accomplish Splitting Expenses with Switch

Splitting expenses with friends or groups can be a hassle, but with the right tools, it can become seamless and stress-free. In this blog post, we will discuss how you can best accomplish splitting expenses using Switch, a mobile payment platform designed to make money management in groups effortless. Whether you're planning a trip, organizing a club, or simply splitting bills with roommates, Switch has you covered.

By following the steps below, you'll learn how to leverage Switch's features to streamline the process of splitting expenses and ensure transparency and accountability within your group.

1. Create a Pitch

Start by creating a pitch on Switch for your specific expense. This could be for a shared trip, club dues, or any other group expense. Specify the amount you need to collect, and invite your friends or group members to join the pitch.

2. Request Money

Once your pitch is set up, use Switch to request money from your friends or group members. You can request an exact amount or leave it open for any amount. Switch allows you to easily send payment reminders and keep track of who has paid and who hasn't.

3. Manage Funds and Expenses

With Switch, each pitch creates its own unique bank account and virtual debit cards. You can use these cards to make online purchases or utilize Apple/Google Pay. Switch's intuitive app allows you to easily create, delete, and manage these cards, eliminating the need to handle physical debit or credit cards.

4. Ensure Transparency and Accountability

Switch's pitch feature ensures transparency and shared social accountability. Instead of manually tracking payments using spreadsheets or notes, Switch displays who has paid and who hasn't within each pitch. You can also download transaction statements and integrate with platforms like QuickBooks for seamless organization.

5. Utilize the Social Component

Switch allows you to have conversations about shared expenses within each pitch. Use the full chat functionality to discuss important details or send SMS text blasts to all group members for free. This ensures that everyone stays in the loop and no important information is missed.

6. Use Switch for Various Group Expenses

Switch is designed to cater to a wide range of group expenses. Whether it's philanthropy events, social gatherings, fantasy sports, or any other common activity, Switch provides a flexible and convenient platform to collect and manage group funds.

7. Tap into Switch's Target User Base

Switch primarily targets college students and recent graduates, making it a perfect tool for Gen Z and Millennials who are already accustomed to mobile banking and P2P payment apps. With the majority of young adults splitting payments weekly and even daily, Switch offers a solution that simplifies the process and removes the hassle of managing group finances.
