Splitting the check just got easier with Group Pay

You’re out with friends, the bill comes, and now you have to divide that sucker 10 ways. Instead of stressing over the bill, try Group Pay.

For biz or personal, costs must sometimes be split

You and nine of your closest friends decide that you don’t care about giving the waitress at a local sushi joint a heart attack. You each munch on a little bit of edamame while you wait for your dinner to find its way to your table. An hour and a half later, you wipe that last bit of soy sauce from your chin and pat your stomach.

“Oh, the checks? We’re all separate. Did we not tell you that before?” Your waitress’ eyes bulge, and she tries to shuffle back to her computer. “No, don’t bother,” you offer. “We’ll make it easy on you – We’ll all just write our card numbers and the amounts we’re paying on the back of the receipt.”

News flash: You made it harder. And your waitress wishes she could go back in time and spit in your California roll.

Introducing Group Pay

If you’re trying to avoid being a royal pain in the neck in situations like these, I applaud you for your awareness. As a reward, I would like to introduce you to Group Pay. The tool splits the table’s bill automatically, so you don’t have to whip out your TI-83 and start crunching numbers.

And if your favorite bar or restaurant supports Apple Pay or Google Wallet, then you’re in the clear. Not only is this a cool and convenient way to pay, but it also keeps your account information and identity safe and secure.

Easy as pie, huh?

All one of you fools has to do is pay with your app, and the bill is magically separated into bite-sized chunks for you and your friends to digest. And if you’re the kind of person that dips out early because you go to bed at grandpa o’clock, you can easily leave the group and your bill will be settled upon your departure. Easy as pie, huh?

No more taking turns buying rounds of shots. No more asking your friends, “do you have cash? I only have card. Can you give me $17 and I’ll cover the rest?” And, most importantly, no more spit in your California roll.
