How it works for customers...

  1. The leader of the group selects Backpocket at checkout, sets the number of people they are splitting payment on accommodation with, and then pays for their share.
  2. The leader then shares the unique payment link with their friends.
  3. The other group members (we call them “payers”) settle up via the link within 7 days. The split updates as group members pay.
  4. Backpocket keeps track of the tab, so the group members don’t have to – it’s that easy!

With no extra costs or fees for the customer, this is an attractive split payment option for accommodation, especially when compared to splitting and tracking group bookings manually.
