Pingit has had a makeover in 2019 – we’ve completely rebranded and we’ve launched a whole host of great new features (not that we’re biased!)
That’s why we wanted to share 10 things you might not know about the Pingit app.
1. It's great for jam-jar budgeting
Pingit lets you split your money out into up to five jars. So if you want a jar for your household expenses, a jar for your next holiday and a jar to collect money for your best friend’s hen do, you can totally do that.
2. You can pay from your jars
You can get yourself a free Pingit card, or if you fancied something a bit different, there’s loads of contactless devices available too (things like key fobs, bracelets and watches) *.
What’s really cool though, is that you can attach and move your card or device between your Pingit jars.
3. It's got you covered if you ever misplace your device
Instantly freeze and thaw with the tap of a button.
4. There's no need to faff around with sort codes and account numbers
You can send money to people using their mobile number instead. Simply select a contact from your phonebook, enter the amount you want to send and you’re done. If they’re on Pingit, the money will go straight into their account. If not, they’ll be sent a text with a link so they can receive the money.
5. You can even send money abroad
No need to let distance slow things down. Pingit lets you send money to friends in over 40 countries, fee-free.
6. It's great if you're the organiser of the group
You can set up your own payment request link (we call it Pingit.me) that you can share with friends when they owe you money. Enter the amount you’re owed, share the link and then keep track of when you’ve been paid in the app.
7. You can split the bill too!
If you’ve just paid for the meal out with your besties, you can request a set amount back from all of them in the app.
8. We're a trusted way to pay and play the National Lottery
You can get your Lotto, Thunderball and EuroMillions lucky dip tickets in Pingit. And if you’re one of the lucky ones, you can instantly withdraw winnings of up to £50,000 through your Pingit account into your bank account.
9. It can help you when you're fundraising for charities close to your heart
You can create your own fundraising page for a charity you’re passionate about. Set a target, share your link and all money raised goes directly to the charity. It’s 100% fee-free too, which means more money going to the causes that matter.
10. It's free to download
You get all these cool features without having to pay a penny. Result!
