explore the app

An easy way to pay for family and friends

Whether you have a child in college or a parent who doesn’t drive, it’s never been easier to help them get around. Family Profiles allows you to share one payment method so you can foot the bill without the hassle.

Why it's helpful

Register up to 5 accounts

Your babysitter. Your assistant. Your second cousin. We call it Family Profiles, but who you add is up to you.

Keep your credit card details

Even though your loved ones can use Family Profiles as their payment method, your credit card information is never revealed.
