Bank account details somewhere/anywhere

Hi. Liking this service so far.

Its nice keeping track of debts, however, it is not much use not knowing how to pay it. (Not everyone uses paypal).

In UK and Australia, someone just needs bank account details to do a transfer. Would be nice either to have one or all of the following:

1. My own account details available for my friends to see. Even if not in their own fields, maybe in a "other info" memo type field.

2. Or be able to put my own comments on my friends so I can make a note of their account details. (or if I think they arent good at paying back)

3. When the expense is added... to explicitly send a custom email out to the involved people with my bank account details

I understand that it can be hard trying to look at expenses from different granularities, ie "how much in total do I owe this person" vs "how much is owed for this expense" vs "how much for this group for this person"

Keep up the good work!

        It would be helpful if we could add our bank account details in our profile description... so that others can easily look it up if they want to pay us back....

        I don't want to enter my account details in each group whiteboard.
        I would like to handy account details in personal whiteboard.
        so suggesting you to have personal whiteboard functionality to save our personal stuffs.

        1. So as we could get account details from this app only for settling expense.
        2. We need not required to go to bank apps for payment settlement.

        here in Brazil we pay to transfer money If the banks are different from each other. if i need to pay to someone who its bank is the same as mine, it would make it a lot easier

        It would be great, if one could provide settlement information in the profile.
        Like (all free form):
        TWINT: 49453265 (mobile p2p payment option)
        BITCON: jfndgjndjgn

        This suggestion is about removing the friction of communicating the different channels people can use to send actual money around, not about integrating any of the channels with splitwise.

        how about to add just an info box to a friend? i talk about a little textbox to add some info (like bankaccount) to a friend. Is this possible?

      • Arnav Maiti commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We have a few groups on splitwise where we settle things up, be it for colleagues, drink buddies or trek mates. The problem is we normally expect a single bank account where the money would be sent and then it would be distributed to the people who would receive it. The only place where the data can be put is on the "Whiteboard" tab. However, the tab is not easily visible and causes a lot of confusion among people. Can we rather have an availability of sticky notes that can be added to the top of the group that can have certain information for the group members?

        Hi there. I'm new to Splitwise. It's such a cool concept, but I find it odd that there is no field in the user to just add you bank details for when you owe someone, since it is a PAYING BACK APP!

        Bonus would be a field to specify how you would like to be paid, i.e. Cash, Direct Bank Payment, etc.

        allow users to add bank account details, so friends can copy it from the platform, and make sure it is mentioned in the exports.

        So you don't need to ask your friends for their account numbers (of course, with high privacy mesures)

        Add a support to settle account thru splitwise only - direct Financial Institution deposit facility

        Even every Financial Institution having this central facility to send money in other account like chase quick pay - popmoney.com etc ..

      • Madhusmita Dash commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Splitwise doesnot link bank account but at least it can provide an option to save bank account numbers of the contacts. Everytime I have to settle with my friend through internet banking for example, I have to ask for account number, would be better if I directly found it on Splitwise.

        This group description field would serve for example to write the IBAN or paypal accounts of the payers. Ideally, this info should be on each personal profile hidden. Then the person would chose to whom would like that the details are visible.
        It's just a description field, although IBAN or paypal details are public, you are not responsible for what people write in the descriptions.
        Make it simple!

        In india we are going through a revolution of less-cash society. With this in mind, we should be able to add account details (UPI in India) of the person which would be available within the group.
        For safety, a user can add only his own account in Splitwise and selectively make it visible in his groups.
        This would help us to settle payments through online transfer with details in Splitwise. At present we send account details on Whatsapp.

        I think it would be great if there is an option to add files to the group which has account details of all the group members.
