Save unequal split settings

I always pay 2/3 and roommate pays 1/3 (i sublet one of the rooms, but think couples). % split is great but would be nice not to have to type 66.67 and 33.33 every time.

        +1 need to be able to save in group setting. I can use this when we take trips with families. When 20 plus people goes its hard to remember the "shares" of each family.

        and, same feature request as @Emiliano Parizzi. saving custom % split for specific categories in a group. I also eat more than my girlfriend :)

      • jestin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        we split amount based on share. by month end it is really difficult to change/add a new share as all have to change from 1. please have this feature asap

        We are 5 people staying in apartment. But we always divided expenses within 4 people. I would be great if you allow two people to have common account in a group as they both together are an entity meaning two people actually pay as a person in group. So please find some solution for this

        Just moved in with 3 people and it is kind of a pain to type in 4 percentages every time we need to split something for the house

      • Emiliano Parizzi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please! We share an apparment with my girlfriend and we usually split everything 50/50 except for food/groceries because she eats a little and I eat a lot so it makes sense to split it in a 30/70.
        I would like a way to save the split percentage for that particular category in that group.
        Or you know, any other way to save the split percentage.

        +1 for me too, especially if you would be able to set this on a group level. We travel with friends and kids and have different weights depending on the age of the kids, would be very helpful if we could do this on a group level.

        +1 or really +4 (or +3, weighted 50%, 25%, and 25%, since that's what I'd like). My girlfriend and I live with two other roommates. We don't bother trying to split expenses any sort of way, especially since at any given time one of us may be jobless or in school.

        What this means right now is my girlfriend owes tons of money and tons of money is owed to me. Every once in a while we go through the annoying process of doubly settling up, but that's not really a functional way for a program to work. We don't want to reenter each item as an uneven split constantly, since that's asking for things to get all screwed up (more user input = more user error).

        Splitwise can already save all sorts of settings; this one doesn't seem like that much of a stretch.

        PS This only needs to be for groups. It'll actually make groups useful, instead of just a marginally more convenient way to enter names.

        We would need to split bills unequally by default too. Or at least if the application would remember the previous split so I wouldn't have to explicitly write it every time...

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I also split my expenses unequally. We're three friends who share and by default I pay a larger chunk than the rest which is how we've set it up (different incomes, socially minded, whatever).

      • Petros Karasakalidis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        like others, we are a group of people (some individuals, some families) organizing trips, going out for dinners etc. it makes no sense to have to list out individual family members

      • Eric commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate


        Like Angela, my and my partners income is patently different. It'd be great to have a group for items that are split by "income" shares such housing, utilities. And obviously a group for full splitting like Splitwise already does such as meals, trips, etc.

        As an idea for non-partner groups, having income based information in the individual members profile would protect privacy from other members.

        It may be a while before Splitwise implements this, but there is a hack for this.

        Suppose you split 66/33 with your friend. Make a group in which you have yourself, your friend and your shadow account.
        This shadow account is simply your second account with another email address.

        So now when you enter an expense and split it equally, you'll get 2 parts of it and your friend gets the third part, automatically!

        Same thing can be done with most of the commonly used ratios, but the number of shadow accounts will vary case by case.
