Just Launched - Recurring Payment Requests for Friends and Family
Set up weekly or monthly recurring requests to friends, family, collaborators
Hi All —
As our community has grown over the past few months, we have received a lot of interest in scheduled/recurring payment requests for friends and family. This is now live in the app, check it out!
If you’re tired of reminding your roommates to pay rent or bills, or you’re using your group to collect or send money on a regular basis, you’ll like this feature. Sharing a Netflix subscription? Set up a payment reminder for each month. It’s easy and means you don’t have to remember to do it yourself.
Some scheduled requests we’re seeing already:
Depositing a set amount each month for shared expenses like groceries, then buying those groceries with the Braid card
Saving for a shared goal with multiple people, like your first post-COVID trip
Sending money regularly to a friend/parent/sibling who lost their job due to COVID
Adding to a shared pool for child support expenses
To use the feature in the app, open up any group and tap the group name at the top of the screen. Then, scroll down to “Automations” and select “Scheduled Requests.” You can set up as many as you like.
We look forward to hearing your feedback! Let us know what you think (email@example.com).
