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!
Storing bank account #s is unfortunately tricky, as there are some serious security concerns around bank #s here in the US and in some other countries. Still, we’d like to do it if possible. It’s not on our roadmap yet, but we’re definitely considering it for the future.
Asking bank details everytime is stupid and annoying !
There is nothing tricky by adding a PAYMENT INFORMATION field where user can explain how they can be paid. No security issue at all as it's only public information

It woud be practicale that a friend can give hus accountnumber somewhere in the app....

if it is tricky please leave a blank fields for any additional information about the user- visible for friends, and allow friends to copy that info. so simple as that .. this app without bank account number is so less useful
similar to how mint.com does it, it would be great to be able to have a feed of my bank transactions and easily be able to approve or ignore transactions to post to splitwise.

could you add extra fields for bank account number for each participant belongs to same group and it should display on user account summary. so we can find other user account number easily and we can transfer money to them by using our Owen payment options

Every time someone has to transfer funds to me, he/she has to ask my bank details, which really is annoying. So simply, make an enhancement to accept user's bank/e-wallet details (optional) while registration. And show it in friends profile. So whenever anyone wants to transfer the funds, he/she can directly refer to the details and get done with it. Hope this helps
Can you add as a feature adding my bank account details. Here in Poland we do not use PayPal to make a transfers between each other but mainly a bank transfers or on a phone number. It would really help, if my friend would be able to see my back details already in the Splitwise including accounts in different currencies.
Thanks in advance,
After having a trip, I am often trying to get bank account details from friends. It would be nice if the tool would allow a user to input his details (sort code and Accountnumber) and enable sharing this with other user. This would allow other people to wire the money to their account to settle a bill.

Every user should have an IBAN field to be easier with transfers

In place where I live we transfer money to each other via bank transfers. So there's a critical need to know each other's bank account details (number would be enough).
I would like to be able to add it to my profile. And to allow everyone who owns me to see it.
I am using SPLITWISE for last 5-6 months and i like the app very much.
But when i want to settle some amount i need to transfer the money using my default banking account service.
I suggested to implement/add the feature of transferring the settled amount to Different Bank in the App itself. So this will make the life easier and hassle free.
In the Netherlands, currently Wiebetaaltwat.nl (whopayswhat) is your biggest competition. I'm trying to convince as much people to use Splitwise, as it's simply much better in so many ways. However, there is one, tiny small thing, that Wiebetaaltwat does better: Showing the IBAN info for people. Just the IBAN and name, as mentioned earlier here, would make it a lot less of a hassle to get people to pay up. Do not hestitate to contact me if you'd like me to deeper explain why!

Enable Wallets or Get Payment Gateways Enabled .
Create Card Wallets to Save Our Card Info One time and Can Settle Up Dues Straight From Account . Cash is Awkward .
Get Payment Gateways for App and Web So That Dues Can be Cleared Up and Payments Can be Made Straight From App .
This Would Generate Business Benefit from Payment Gateway Partners Like VISA , Mastercard Etc and And Give an Epic Edge to the App Experiences .
Dear Splitwise team,
I love your app and I'm already using it to manage almost all my money expenses. It would be great at this point if you connected the app to my bank account so that you could provide (as a premium feature) statistics about my money, where does it comes from, where does it go etc.
I think it would be far better than all those bank account managing apps just because Splitwise is already so useful with managing expenses.

The auto pop up message at settle up, is entirely pre-written. It will be great if a part is pre allowed for the user to write which is clubbed with your message at output.
This will be great for me to add my Bank details for settling up. Or other information with the group which is going to be common. It's a great pain to copy paste,say my Bank details,for a group of 16, every time I hit settle up.
Since this would be a part of my personal message, no compliance would be required.
Allan Tony commented
Whenever someone owes me and they want to settle up they always ask for my account no so that they can transfer the amount right away. I was just thinking it would be easy if the account no was displayed in the UI.
Can you provide the feature of sending your account details to all the people who owe your any money in splitwise .This will ease the pain of sending the account details to each and everyone indivisually
Until you roll out an official way to add bank account numbers, it would be great if comments were at least copyable. Right now, my friends and I have tried using the comment section in the group to post our IBAN numbers, but since it's not possible to copy the text, this doesn't even serve as a workaround.
For bank details, something like default description or comment for every expense would be enough.
Just IBAN and account holders name is needed there.
