How to add or remove Shared Space participants?

To get the most out of ‘Shared Spaces’ you can add participants so that everyone can start contributing towards your upcoming purchases, whether that be a vacation or simply splitting bills. You can also remove participants who no longer wish to be a part of the ‘Shared Space’.

Before we jump into adding or removing participants from a ‘Shared Space’, it is important to keep in mind the following:

  • Only the ‘owner’ or the person who created the ‘Shared Space’ can add or remove participants.
  • The owner can only invite people who are in their contact list, have an N26 account and are marked as ‘visible’ to other N26 users within their account settings.
  • If the name from the owner’s contact list does not match the participants N26 account name, then the owner will need to fill in the full name of the participant whilst going through the ‘Shared Spaces’ add participant flow.
  • You’ll need to have enough free Space(s) to accept an invitation to a Shared Space. If not, you can only proceed if you delete other Space(s) to free up … Space.
  • You must also not have any open Space with the same name or image as the Shared Space. You can only accept the invitation to join a Shared Space once you change the name/image of the other Space(s).
