BillMonk Comments

I think WhoseBill is the answer!

about BillMonk · Aug 2012 ·

WhoseBill is such an easy website for me and my friends and family to access. I mainly use it for regular bills between friends and for group holidays where you set up a pool and invite others to join. They don’t have to, mind, but it means anyone can input the bills.

I also record one off loans and payments on it just so I’ve got it logged all in the same place.

It was quick to set up and I’ve used it for more than 2 years now. I like the layout and it’s easy to navigate your way around. I had a brief look at other options but WhoseBill suited my needs perfectly and it’s never let me down.

It was free to sign up too and I’d definitely recommend them. :-)

Billmonk is dead, so Splitwise is your best bet.

about BillMonk and Splitwise · Aug 2012 ·

Having gone through the majority of the alternatives in this list, it seems like Splitwise is the only one that can even be comparable to Billmonk.

Pros:

  • Quick, snappy interface that is well thought out
  • Responsive support team and open to feedback
  • Well designed and easy to on-board friends and start putting bills into it

Cons:

  • Bill inputting uses a small javascript modal window (as of August 13, 2012)
  • Itemizing your bill turns it into an "uneven split" bill after submission, making editing it extremely painful
  • No ability to attach multiple payers to a single bill

It has a ton of potential, and it seems to have an active team behind it. Going to stick with it and hope it goes better than Billmonk!

billmonk isn't dead

Splitwise is about to do a big relaunch in the next few weeks. We've added and changed a ton of stuff, and have lots more coming online in the very near future. We even have an importer that Billmonk users can use to input their exported data from their old accounts. Please come give us a try!

Hi Jon,

Did you look at Whosebill.com?

Looking at your CONS list, you can already add multiple payers to bills and the inputting of bill data is clear on the screen rather than a pop up window.

I don’t know about itemised billing but I’m sure if you drop them a line they’d answer. Perhaps a test to see how good their support is?

Hope you find a solution. I’ve enjoyed using Whosebill and never had any problems.

@Nellie: Seconded!

@Salhumphries: I gave WhoseBill a test run when I was looking at Billmonk's alternatives here, and its UI simply cannot compare to Splitwise. Not only is there no support for multiple payers (I don't even know how to put a payer) but it's not very intuitive, and I couldn't even add a bill because it would tell me to "Please check the errors below..." and there would be absolutely no errors in my entry at all.

Frankly, it was one step above most of the other alternatives, but it still felt cruddy to use (a la Billmonk) and did not accomplish most of the things I needed from it. Thanks anyway!

Hi Jon,

It does support multiple payers... add a joint bill, add the participants and select partial/multiple payments. I haven’t used this feature recently but did when I first signed up and have just checked that it’s still there.

The UI is down to personal choice I guess, there are little bits on Whosebill which could be improved but the maths behind it always works for me. You haven’t said what your particular problems were with Billmonk and I’ve never used it but Whosebill has never given me the problems other people seem to be reporting about it.

There are lots of alternatives out there and it’s good to have forums to share preferences.

I like splitwise, but our group recently switched to billsup because of the cons mentioned by jon. I actually really like billsup as well: their interface is pretty simple and they don't force groups on you.

@nellie thanks for the update, we'll wait for your relaunch and re-evaluate

I just started using BillPin recently, and I have to say it's better than any other apps I have tried. All the cons listed above do not apply to BillPin which is why I made the switch. Their interface, both the app and web, are very neat and simple. It's extremely user-friendly, and you can also import all your BillMonk data onto BillPin (http://billmonkbackup.com/ ).

BillPin is highly recommended. I have a feeling that BillPin is going to be the next BillMonk...without dying. Lol.

I am late to this thread, but I recently encountered gcfixer.com

I loved the tool, they have gone out of traditional ways and have much more features like - Stock, Trip (with virtual users).
