Shared spending, solved. With Group Jars.
The vast majority of us are involved in some shared budgeting and spending. Till now, the tools for spending – and planning – with our partners, friends and family have been pretty sub-par.
Friends spend together
Our lives are more and more social. We talk together in groups more – thanks to Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter. We’ve always spent money together with other people, from shared bills to holidays and nights out.
And social spending is on the up: on entertainment and experiences like festivals, gigs, trips; more of us are renting in shared homes; there are even mortgages now for friendship groups. A lot of the joys of life, and its practicalities, are closely connected to other people.
The vast majority of us are involved in some shared budgeting and spending. Till now, the tools for spending – and planning – with our partners, friends and family have been pretty sub-par. They haven’t matched the degree to which money is shared, or adapted to the shape of our lives.
A joint account is complex and time-consuming to set up, and it can affect mutual credit ratings. Cash kitties are increasingly inconvenient, and insecure. And many bill-splitting apps remain limited in scope, and labour intensive. Typically, they are most useful for one-off transactions, and require post-fact settlement.
Every Jar in HyperJar functions like a mini-account, with its own transaction history, name, and messaging system attached. With Group Jars, the Jar owner can instantly invite up to 30 other people to have access to the Jar, and set permissions. This means you can all potentially pay into, see, and spend from – using your own card - the same Jar.
Instant joint accounts with none of the hassle or complexity for couples, flat-sharers, you and your kids, or just friendship groups. Create digital kitties for events or a big night out. Message each other using our in-app notes feature. And if you’re budgeting and planning for a goal with others – like a holiday, or a friend’s wedding - a Group Jar will help you encourage the progress you’re making together.
