Now that you’ve claimed your group & chosen how to split the cost, you’ll be given the option to commit to a share of the purchase yourself.
If you’ve chosen to split your purchase evenly you’ll automatically be set to claim one slot, which you can edit later as described in this article.
If you’ve chosen a custom split for your purchase, you will be prompted to enter your share amount directly. You’ll have to commit to at least the same amount as any minimum you set in the prior step.
Next, you’ll select your preferred payment method. If you’ve used Pay By Group before and were already signed in to your account, you will see an option to commit to your share using any previously-entered cards you’ve used.
If you don’t have a Pay By Group account, or you just prefer to use a new credit card, you can choose to add a new payment method. You’ll need:
- Your card number
- Your card’s expiration date
- Your card’s security code
- The full name of the cardholder as displayed on the card
- Your card’s billing postal code
If your Pay By Group includes a deposit option (which you will pay up front and have the opportunity to split later) and you would like to pay it, simply check the box that says “Pay deposit now.” You can learn more about how deposits work in this article.
When you’re ready to complete the process of creating your group, simply click the blue “I’m in” button and you’ll be taken to the dashboard for your new group. Please note that if you prefer to join your group at a later time, you can click the “I’ll join later” link next to the “I’m in” button. This will take you to your Pay By Group dashboard without committing to a share. (Don’t worry, you can commit directly from the dashboard as shown in this article.)
