        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…

        I actually disagree and hope that you will never implement this. Splitwise is great for its simplicity and rolling balance philosophy. I feel like this capability would only over-complicate things. If some guy owes me $50, I don't really care if that $50 is slated for expense A or expense B. All that matters is the guy needs to pay me $50. Despite reading every comment below to try to enlighten myself, I still can't figure out a possible situation where this would ever be useful.

        Also, "Simplify Debts" is by far the best feature of Splitwise. Applying a payment to a specific expense definitely breaks down there.

        Just wanted to share my $0.02 with the dissenting opinion.

          Hey there – very sorry for the trouble! We would love to add a “this is how I like to be repaid” feature that would let you specify your favorite payment services and the IDs you use on each platform. Can’t say exactly when this will get implemented (we’re a really tiny team) but it’s on the radar. Thanks for your patience.
