Ability to add a default PayPal address
An account should have the ability to specify an alternate PayPal address so that when it's time to settle up, the alternate address will be used instead of the address associated with Splitwise.
Thanks for the suggestion! This definitely makes sense. We’d like to add the ability for an account to include multiple email addresses, and setting different default addresses for PayPal/Venmo/etc seems like a logical extension of that.
How do we escalate this issue?
I see that it is not added even after 6 years of someone suggesting this. I still see that when someone tries to settle with me using PayPal it always goes to my gmail associated with Splitwise - but I don't have a PayPal account setup for that. There's still no way I can add my PayPal account address for receiving. It looks like such a simple feature though.
Allow the lender to pick the PayPal account to use vs. using the email used to set up the splitwise account as the default PayPal email address.
Because of this , Splitwise sent my PayPal payment to the lender wrong email address and I am unable to get the money back because PayPal considers the payment completed. So the money is in limbo because the Lender can not access this money because it was sent to the wrong email address.

Is this feature still not implemented?

if I want to pay someone using PayPal, there splitwise account email is sometimes different than there paypal email. So I cannot send to them since there email is different and paypal button when clicked, takes by default the email we mentioned in splitwise account.
can you add another field in splitwise settings where we can put our paypal email id so that when someone clicks to pay using PayPal, it takes our paypal email from the field. Thank you.

To be able to change my email for paypal money transfer and still keep the primary log-in email around. And/Or add an option to use paypal.me/xyz as the link to get back money.

By default you should not allow payment via Paypal, it should be enabled by the user. Someone paid me by Paypal due to this default functionality and Paypal won't give me the money without taking 6% in currency conversion fees.
This is a very good point! I've been having issues where people have been sending money to my account under SplitWise instead of my Paypal account. Please fix this issue! It would do wonders! Thank you for listening!
I agree. This is a huge drawback. The e-mail I use with SplitWise isn't the one I use with Paypal.
