Share a bank account
I would like to share one of my bank account onto the Cake account of my partner. This would allow my partner to get a better overview of our family spending.
We currently don’t plan to implement this feature. We believe a “power of attorney” should be setup on the bank account (by the bank).
This would allow partners to gain access to the “account information”. (At the same time, this could also enable “payment initiation” services.)

Hi Davy, that's a workaround indeed but it has some disadvantages: 1) if you guys would be planning on allowing payments too via the app, it won't last as a workaround. I'm happy to share data with my partner but not to allow him to make transactions on my account. 2) Also, wouldn't he miss out on his Cake award via this workaround?

Hi there - your partner should be able to add your account to her app as well, which would share the transaction details. Would that not fix the issue?
