“You go to dinner with five friends. You pay the bill with your credit card and everyone agrees to settle up later. The next day you go to a movie with two of those same friends and they pay for your ticket and popcorn… at this rate, you’ll need a spreadsheet… or you can use the free, online service BillMonk.” Future Tense, American Public Media (radio, Oct 16, 2006)

User Quotes

Wade W. (Frisco, TX)

My girlfriend and I live together and we split most of the bills right down the middle. Even grocery shopping. I used to pay bills then give them over to her to reimburse me. She’d have to calculate up what she owed then transfer the money.

With BillMonk, I just put it in there and the balance is kept track of. Easy as pie! It’s an example of something I didn’t think I needed until I tried it. Awesome. Thank you BillMonk!

Thomas L. (Seattle, WA)

Managing money in social situations has always been tough. I hate it when the check arrives for a big group at a restaurant. Nobody carries enough cash, people can’t agree on how to split the check, and time is wasted as the staff has to run everyone’s card indvidually. I often covered it all and hoped people would get me back, but it’s always an awkward experience to confront friends about money. When BillMonk came along I found an easy way to make sure I didn’t lose track of money I needed to collect or pay back. BillMonk is the first company in recent memory of the Internet to provide a service that actually solved a problem I faced. Now I use BillMonk all the time. I love that I can do it on my cell phone! At a restaurant, I pay, send a text message into BillMonk, and don’t worry about it. Everyone I have ever used the service with agrees that it makes life a lot easier. Now, whenever I hear strangers at the next table squabbling over a bill, I want to start preaching BillMonk to them.

Mike O. (Dallas, TX):

I use BillMonk with my roommate Brian to track rent, utilities, and groceries. Rent and utilities were never a problem between us, but staying even on grocery bills was – especially beer. We used to have a system of taking turns buying beer when it ran out, but this didn’t always work out as planned. Sometimes I would find myself buying beer several times in a row and get annoyed at Brian. But in truth, he meant no harm and was either too busy to go to the store, or simply didn’t realize we had run out of beer. The tension this caused between us was unnecessary, but we had no clear solution.

A few months ago we learned about BillMonk and have been using it to track groceries as well as rent and utilities. Now it doesn’t matter who buys the beer or how often because BillMonk keeps track of it all. Whenever I’m at the store buying a new case, I simply send in a text message to BillMonk to record the purchase. It’s an easy system to use and BillMonk handles the uncomfortable task of reminding Brian so I don’t have to. Today, no one’s beer purchases get taken for granted, and arguing over groceries is a thing of the past.

    Is BillMonk still alive and kicking?
    I visited your FAQ and followed the Facebook App link. Here I see reviews all giving you 1/5 stars complaining about serious bugs not getting fixed. I also try the “Translate” link on the billmonk-site, and the server does not exist.

    Is this a dead company now? I wonder…

    Hello Fellow BM Users,

    I talked to Obopay customer support and they told me that the website has not been shutdown and they are looking into restoring the service at the earliest. I did not get any reasons or cause for why the website is down from them.

    Regards,
    Manju

    • BillMonk Support Says:

      To all users,

      We are working hard to restore the Billmonk service. We hope to have the site up and running as quickly as possible. Please note that we have not made any decision to shut this site down.

      We appreciate your support and patience,

      Tony, Obopay Support Manager

  20. andy Says:

    Hopefully, you guys will make sure everything comes back to normal along with all our accounts. That is a lot of money in there.

  21. Girish Says:

    I am another bugged user here…

    Billmonk has been acting so weird lately. I’ve been having problems for nearly two weeks now.
    First, it started with errors while I added bills, only once in a while.
    Then, the website started responding very late; either it failed to open when I typed in the site address or even if the login page opened, once I entered my details and click on the login button, it would fail to go ahead.
    And yesterday when I tried to open the site, I was sent to a page which said something like the website is down and will be back up soon.
    Today, it opened but the login was damn slow. I tried to enter a bill several times, and it was failing to go to the details page. When i did get to that page and then to the next page to enter who participated and paid, I selected who participated from the drop-down menu, and it gave me an error saying “oops! you found a bug!” This happened several times, and one of those times I clicked on the report bug link under that message. Guess what happened…Yes, I was sent to a page which said “oops! you found a bug!”
    So, I went to the “contact us” link and went to the section which was about what you like and what you don’t. I entered this whole big message telling them about the problem, and why I am not sending it as a bug report. When I clicked on the submit button, I saw that it was taking so long to be submitted. I realized what was gonna happen, and quickly clicked in the text box and pressed Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C. Quick thinking, else I would have had to type the whole long msg again because the next page was an error too! Service temporarily unavailable!
    I somehow reached this blog, and saw the comments here. So I pressed Ctrl+V and posted the msg here.

    It’s getting really frustrating. Hope you guys fix it soon, because we chose Billmonk for the convenience and ease it provides. I live with roommates too, 2 to be precise. Earlier I used to have 3 roommates. For about 1.5 years I had the responsibility of maintaining the bills and the IOU’s for each of us. Whenever anyone spent on anything shared, they would give me the receipt; I used to maintain a book to enter all the bills and to calculate the IOU’s every month(I was never comfortable with EXCEL and preferred being old school in this matter). But about a month back or so, one of my roommates discovered Billmonk and since then each of us has been entering his bill himself and Billmonk has been keeping track of it. It took so much of load off my shoulders. I have been so grateful to Billmonk. That’s why this long msg…

    Once again, hope you guys fix the issue soon.

  22. Nil Says:

    I am very much inclined to just move away from billmonk. Granted its a free service – but it’s that – a service. And going by the way things have been in the past few weeks – its time to start using something else like
    http://splitmybill.ie/

  23. BillMonk Support Says:

    All,

    We apologize that the site is not back up yet. We have identified several issues and are working to get them resolved quickly.

    Tony

  24. BillMonk Support Says:

    All,

    We put the site back under the maintenance page. We found the site became unstable again. We hope to be back soon.

    Tony

  25. Smith Says:

    Please update us once the site is up. I have to collect a lot of money from my friends with no records about how much to collect from whom.
    If its going to take sometime to get the site up again, can you guys atleast email the IOUs to each of the users. Plz Plz Plz

  26. BillMonk Support Says:

    All,

    I understand how frustrating this is. We are performing upgrade tasks to the server and performing other maint. items as I write this. I will post here once the site is back up.

    Tony

  27. billmonk Says:

    All,

    We have made progress toward getting the service back up. To that end, we must still make more changes and do more testing before the site can go live. The site will need to be down for the weekend and we are looking toward bringing the site back up sometime Monday Sept 20th. I will provide another post sometime Monday morning with more information.

    Tony

  28. gaurav Says:

    The site is still down. Tony do you have any updates for us? Thanks

  29. RG Says:

    We got to have the BM website up for a day so that we can get our data from there and be able to settle our bills with others. Hopefully, then plan to move to some other bill share services.

    thank you

  36. e cigarette coupons Says:

    I did not start using the e-cig as a way to completely quit smoking. I had pretty much given up on that. I just felt how bad I was getting from smoking and having a hard time breathing and coughing in the mornings. I was getting worse and worse. I didn’t go into it the way I did with smoking cessation products like the gum. I had no expectations, other than possible hope to improve my breathing and cutting down on combustible cigarettes. Completely quitting “analogs” as they are commonly called in the vaping community, was a side affect and a pleasant one at that! I feel so much better and healthier. At some point I may go down to 0% nicotine.. but not planning to anytime soon. (if i do, I will continue vaping). The transition was very easy where other nicotine delivery products did not work. having the freedom to self-medicate and at a low price has allowed me to gradually drop my nicotine addiction. I smoked over a pack a day… Had smoked for 20+ years. I may do this e-cig thing long term.. And i do believe this is a much healthier alternative to smoking.. I believe it, because my body tells me so. Caffeine and nicotine are on par with each other. I have never been a caffeine person.. it makes me ill.

    Billmonk giving error while sharing a bill.

    Can anybody tell why it is giving error while sharing a bill?

  38. Anant Says:

    I have been having some serious problems with using billmonk. For the past 1 week, I have not been able to post any bills on it and even the mails to address given on the site are not getting thorough. Is anyone else having similar problems? I am really sick of these regular problems and would be glad if anyone could suggest an alternative.

  39. bemilm Says:

    @Anant
    Yeah, i’m getting the same behavior. There are serious problems with the site at the moment, it seams. Can’t add a new bill can can’t even send an email–both actions result in an error page. Very disappointing. I used to find this service very useful.

  40. Bucks 'n' Buddies Says:

    I need access to bill monk. Bill monk was telling me that my password was incorrect and it will not allow me to log in via facebook. I asked bill monk to send me a new temporary password but I have not received it in my mailbox yet. I have a great deal of data that I stored with my roommates regarding various bills and purchases. Is anyone else experiencing these issues? I contacted them a few times and I am still waiting for them to respond. Have any of you actually heard from there costumer service? Do they have a phone number?

    Thank you.

    • Udit Sharma Says:

      yeah, i am having same issue. not able to login through facebook app. This jerk is showing some “Invalid API key specified
      The app you are trying to access does not exist or has been disabled.” so i tried forgot password thing , that was also not working as i was not getting any mail. so i tried to contact their customer care for this issue and guess what i didn’t get a single response from their side.

      • veronica Says:

        Let me know if your issue ever becomes resolved. I have e-mailed bill monk a bunch and I received the emails back because apparently their e-mail address does not work. I have been locked out of bill monk for almost 5 days now. I hope they resolve this issue soon. We should at least be able to access our transaction data.

    The bill monk page takes a hell lot of time to load. My internet speed is good every other page is loading but only billmonk page is taking a lot of time to load which is pretty annoying…………

    I have been using this site for a year now…and although things were good in the beginning..it is going downhill…the website takes ages to load.I have to literally wait fifteen mins sometimes for a page to load..I have to delete the cookie in the browser sometimes even to access the site..(tried all browsers- same problems)..and then there is a “you found a bug” page which pops up randomly….I have also left these issues on that page…but i don’t know even if anyone is reading it out there..it’s a shame..I have to search for alternatives…and I am not recommending using this site to anyone….but i don’t seem to find any with the same amount of functionality and ease of use…

    I cannot logon anymore for last 2 days.

    For those wanting to save your data, go to account->export and download the xml file before the site permanently goes down.

    maybe consider changing websites. my friends and I just switched to http://www.billsup.com

    Billmonk is again down. :(

  110. Snehal Kharat Says:

    Get a warning on the site telling the users to backup their data. So that the site can be completely shut down. Also I just realized that some of the data there is incorrect. My home page shows that I need to collect some $ from my room mate where as on her home page she sees I need to pay her. I’m not sure whats wrong.
    But atleast let the users access their data so they can rectify.

    People rely heavily on your website.
    so before shutting down atleast make sure there is a warning.

    Because this screws up our lives.

    If BillMonk ever comes back up, i’m going to try SplitWise’s BillMonk Importer: http://blog.splitwise.com/2012/08/14/welcome-billmonk-refugees-in-which-we-import-billmonk-data/

    BillMonk used to be great. No longer.

  112. KK Says:

    So true but Splitwise does lots of adjustments some of them hard to understand …

  113. laren Says:

    Billmonk i miss you. splitwise is so confusing…

  114. suhredayan Says:

    The site is down because their SSL certificate got revoked by the issuer, and the browsers by default will not allow to access such sites. The work around that I used to login and backup my data was:

    1. Open Internet Explorer and go to Menu->Tools -> Internet Options.
    2. Select the advanced tab, and scroll down to the security section.
    3. Uncheck the box “Check for server certificate revocation”.
    4. Click Apply and Ok.
    5. Restart the Internet Explorer.
    6. Try access the website (http://www.billmonk.com), it should go through fine.
