When it comes to sharing and distributing expenses, it is usually very helpful to have a simple calculator with which to divide the amount among those who have shared dinner, travel or shopping in the supermarket, but there are different applications that make this task even easier.
Once the payments have been distributed, it is necessary to make the income by PayPal, Bizum or in cash
This is especially useful for those cases in which everyone involved in a purchase or payment is not present at the same time and in the same place, such as when you touch pay between multiple friends or family A birthday present.
Some of these apps allow you to send money directly from PayPal, but in general they make it easier to calculate the corresponding amounts, and you have to organize the payments through Bizum or by giving the amount in cash to whoever corresponds.
