How it works
- Log into your account and click Get started in the Pay By Group pop-up.
- Enter the name of your campaign -- this “Name” is what others will see when you invite them to contribute -- and click Split the cost.
- Create your group by choosing how you want to split the payment and entering the email addresses of people you would like to invite. (You can skip sending the invites and instead share a link OR invite people later if you don’t have their emails handy.)
- Once the campaign reaches its goal, submit payment to the provider (or activate the auto-pilot feature so your group’s payments are automatically submitted when the group reaches the goal).
- You and your group will receive receipts once your group’s payment is received.
