Reverse Bills

Sometimes I EARN money, and I owe that money to my 3 roommates.

A bill is when they OWE ME money. A Reverse bill is when I OWE THEM money.

You can solve this by letting us do a negative amount for a bill. Thanks!

    Our website now has additional handling for reverse bills/refunds – when entering a bill, you now have the option to choose “reimbursement” as a split type, which will allow you to distribute money equally between a number of people. (If you try to enter a negative cost in the “Add bill” form, it will now automatically change to the new “reimbursement” split method.)

    We’d love to add this kind of bill to our mobile apps as well, but it’s not on the roadmap yet. Apologies for the inconvenience!

    Hope that helps! Let us know if you encounter any bugs, or if you have any other suggestions.

        Any idea of when this is going to be on the mobile application?

        Why do you insist on not implementing this feature in mobile apps? It works great in Splittr but Splittr is iOS only, so I'm looking for smth else and your app looks great.

        But it lacks the reimbursement option which makes it unusable for my needs (splitting business proceedings and sharing expenses with partners).

        I don't want to use the website or I'd just stick with the Google Doc. I am somewhat disappointed... Please let me know if I'm mistaken and it's just hiding somewhere.

        We had an amount at the end of our trip. Instead of splitting the money, I kept it and want it to be subtracted from the money that I need to receive... So I guess adding the possibility of negative amount to would fix this.

        Groceries/common items cashback which one can get after 2 or 3 days after splitwise bill generation needs to be taken care of. For that individual can be able to put cashback amount over splitwise and this should equally be distributed among group of peoples.

        my Roommate and I paid a deposit for our electric bill, we added it as a shared expense on splitwise. That deposit has not been credited back to one of our accounts, and it would be nice if I could add it in to splitwise. it should work the same way as a and expense bill, just negative.

        I would add into my splitwise that I received an amount of money and that I owe my roommate half of it.

        Suppose one of the household which is common in group sold out and got some amount. Add a feature so that amount will spilt equally among each member of the group.

        It is very common that my roommate and I share an expense for a gathering and receive some small compensation from our friends. This compensation is awkward to account for in the current system.

        This really needs to be added to the mobile apps. After 2 years and some change, it's reasonable to expect this would have been implemented at this point.

        Dear Team,
        I really like this app, it saves a lot of our time while dividing the bills and moreover its very helpful for students like us staying in hostel. One thing on which i want to bring your attention is while today as i booked my ticket from other platform and ultimately i got some cashback, i couldn't find any discount filed in splitting up the bill. lately i put that discount figure as negative figure under tax lab. so if your team can come up with some kind of discount tab below the billing tab that would be very helpful.

        Again thanks a lot team, We appreciate your efforts in bringing this up
