With Divvy, you’ll never have to worry about saving your receipts for accounting at the end of the month and you can request funds from your manager on the fly. With Divvy, it is easy to track all of your company-related spending from our user-friendly mobile app.

1. Your Divvy Account

Once you have been given access to Divvy, your admin will send you an invitation email that will let you create your password and log in. If you have not received that email yet, reach out to your admin.

2. Downloading the Mobile App

The Divvy mobile app is your most useful resource with all things Divvy (Android and iOS).

To keep your financial information secure, we use multi-factor authentication (Learn more about MFA here). This helps prevent fraudsters from gaining unauthorized access to your money.

When you first log in, you’ll enter your phone number and receive a six-digit SMS/Text code. Enter the code to verify your identity.

Don’t forget to check “Remember this browser” when entering your passcode so you don’t have to input a code for another 30 days.

3. Card Activation

Once you have logged in to your account and received your physical Divvy Card, you will need to activate your card to start spending! There are two ways to activate your physical card:

On the Mobile App:

  1. Open the app and log in.

  2. Once logged in, you'll see a picture of your Divvy card. Press Activate Card and enter the last 4 digits of your physical card.

  3. All done! Your card should now be active and good to go.

On the Desktop Site:

  1. Go to app.divvy.co and log in.

  2. After logging in, click on your initials on the bottom-left of the screen and then click Profile.

  3. Once on the profile page, there will be an image of a credit card in the bottom right. Click Activate card and enter the last 4 digits of your physical card when prompted.

  4. All done! The card should now be active and good to go.

(Note: If your card still says “Not Activated” after either of these methods, try refreshing the app by logging out and re-entering credentials). Refer to our step-by-step activation instructions here.

Now that you are logged in and have activated your card, let’s walk through the mobile app and the most relevant features for you as a spender!

4. Cards

On the Wallet page, you will be able to see your physical and virtual cards.

Your physical Divvy card is, well, a real card you can hold—the one we just activated.

A virtual card is a digital card that you create in the Divvy mobile app. It functions like a physical card, however, all of the card details exist exclusively online. You’ll be able to create virtual cards once you have been added to a budget.

To create a virtual card on mobile:

  1. Press the Wallet tab.

  2. Then, press the +Card in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

  3. Name the card and select your desired budget to pull funds from.

Press save and you’re done! You will have access to the virtual card through the Wallet tab in the Virtual Card menu.

5. Transactions

Once you have made your first transaction on either a virtual card or your physical card, you will see the transaction immediately on the Transactions tab.

Until you have uploaded a receipt for your transaction and have completed the required fields, you’ll notice the yellow “Incomplete” tag on your transactions. To complete a transaction, you will need to upload a picture of your receipt as well as fill out all of the required fields related to your transactions.

On the Web, your transactions can be filtered by date, budget, and transaction status, among other options. This allows you to quickly review your transactions and ensure that they are legitimate and have been completed.

6. Budgets

In order to spend with physical or virtual cards in Divvy, you need to be a member of a budget with funds assigned to you from within that budget. When you press the Budget icon on the bottom of the screen on mobile, you will see a list of the budgets you are a member of, as well as how much money is available to you within each budget.

Before you swipe your physical card to make a purchase, make sure your active budget has been selected. The mobile app defaults to the budget with the most funds available so make sure the budget you would like to pull funds from is selected before you spend.

Keep in mind, you can always choose the correct budget later by clicking on the transaction, but this only works if you have funds available in the budget you would like to change to.

If you have not been assigned to a budget, contact your admin.

7. Requesting Funds

Let’s say that none of your budgets have sufficient funds available for a purchase you need to make. Don’t worry, all you need to do is request funds.

There are two ways to request funds on mobile:

  1. You can press Request funds from the Wallet screen right under the image of your card.

You can also request funds from the More screen:

  1. Press More at the bottom right-hand corner of the mobile app.

  2. Choose Request funds.

  3. Select the budget you would like funds for.

  4. Enter the amount you'd like to request and add a note.

  5. Be sure to click Request (highlighted in blue) and you're good to go! Your request will get sent to your admin and budget owner for approval!

You can always check the status of your request by clicking on the Requests button from the More screen. (Reminder, you can only request funds from budgets you are already a member of).

8. Alerts and Notifications

When a funds request has been approved, you’ve been added to a budget, or a new incomplete transaction needs your attention, you will receive a notification on your mobile device.

To take action from the notification, click on the notification on your mobile device. You will be redirected to the Divvy app for more information.

In the event you dismiss the notification, you can also navigate to your alerts on the mobile app to see an alert history:

  1. Press More on the mobile app.

  2. Then press Alerts to see a history of alerts related to you in Divvy.

9. User Profile

Lastly, you may want to edit your personal data or personalize your Divvy experience by updating your profile picture. You can do this from the profile screen in Divvy.

To update your profile picture in the Divvy mobile app:

  1. Open the app and log in.

  2. Press More.

  3. Press change on your initials to select the profile picture you would like to upload.

Alternatively, you can press Edit at the top right corner of the profile screen to edit your personal information.
