    An update: we’re still not planning to add the concept of a payment for a specific bill or a specific expense. We’ve left this idea under review for many years, but we’re not convinced it’s the right idea for Splitwise. We think focusing on a total balance makes things simpler in most cases.

Then in the Group Balances tab, it just shows you owe an additional specific amount to that same person, over and above whatever "Settle Up" amount you owe.
