    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. This is also how a bank balance works.

    Here’s two potential work-arounds if you’re not satisfied:

    1. Let’s say you want to set things up so you can see if people have specifically paid for a certain bill, or for a certain month of expenses. You can create a group just for that bill or month – then, when viewing that group, you will only see balances owed from that specific bill or set of bills.

    2. Once you pay an amount and want to keep track of it being for a certain bill, you could use…

    No idea why it matters. If you owe your roommate $100 for BillA and $50 for BillB, and you pay them $75, what is the practical difference between now owing them $75 more for BillA or $25 for BillA and $50 for BillB? You still owe them $75...

    Updating since it’s been a while. We still really like this idea, unfortunately, there’s not a lot of momentum around it. We also haven’t figured out the best way to implement it yet. We’ll leave it open for now for further voting and comments.

    Suggestion is a custom @splitwise.com email address for an expense group. When a bill, say an electric bill or internet bill, is forwarded to the address, Splitwise parses out the amount and date and automatically adds it as a split group expense. Perhaps add the email as an attachment so everyone can verify.

    I would subscribe to Pro for that, as it would totally automate my monthly use of Splitwise.
