Help ‘Susan’ Out with Payk

This post is sponsored by PayK, a most excellent app.

I want to tell you about the new group payments app, PayK and how it is a godsend at this time of year in particular. You know, when it’s time to organise the end of year gifts for your kid’s school teachers, your kid’s dance teachers, your kid’s coaches… all of those group gifts. It can be a nightmare to co-ordinate. And it is often co-ordinated by someone called Susan. I have no idea why, but it is true.

Chasing other parents for cash with emails, phone calls and texts can be uncomfortable. And if I can be honest with you, I have been that one who has forgotten on occasion, only to be horrified when I suddenly remember when I am having a bout of amnesia.

The end of the school year is coming up and Susan has to arrange the group present. As a former teacher myself, I can say this with complete confidence. Please do NOT get 30 individual gifts! Just put in an agreed amount AND BUY A VOUCHER! Please buy them a voucher. Not a candle or a mug or some chocolates. They just really want a voucher to spend it on something they either need or want. This is VERY important.

So, you all agree to throw in a certain amount of cash. Susan downloads the PayK app and invites all the members who then join that particular group. “VOUCHER FOR MISS ELLIOT” for example.

PayK isn’t just about keeping tabs, notes and calculations. PayK is a financially integrated solution which means that the actual money transfers take place within the app – so you can see how much you’ve gathered, and from who. You enter a set amount or make it flexible, then PayK saves the day and does the chasing up. You just sit back and watch the money transfers come into the group wallet in real time.

PayK is supercharging your class teachers present by chipping in the first $50 for your teacher.  Simply download the app, create a group and invite parents to join PayK and use the special code PAY50.

It is 100% free and there are no fees involved.


Plus – it has so many more uses that the end of year school presents! Hen’s nights, wine trips, dinners, you name it!
