  1. Cash settlement at the event.
  2. Online payment via the application.

The availability of the above options at a given event depends on the settings selected by the event host.

We plan to introduce payments for events using Chumsy Coins in the near future - details coming soon. Stay tuned!

Where can I pay for an event?

What is "Name it!" category?

While creating the list of sports and lifestyle categories we tried to indicate as many opportunities as possible for each Chumsy to find his/her passions and interests. Lists of fields and categories are updated on an ongoing basis based on the suggestions of our Users. However, we know that our Chumsys have endless ideas and nothing limits their imagination which is why we created the Name it! category.

Name it! is an option under which Chumsy, who has not found his/her idea for an event in the proposed areas/categories can create an original event by himself/herself.

How can I share photos from a joint event with other participants?

All participants of a given event can add photos to the event by clicking the plus icon on the right side of the "Photos" tab on a given event. You can add photos both during the event and after it ends. In addition, each participant of the event can download onto his/her mobile device any photos shared in this event by other Users - has it ever been easier to exchange photos? :)


When can I send messages to other Chumsys?

The option to send messages to other Users activates itself in three cases:

  1. When the User is your friend on Chumsy App.
  2. When a given User is not your friend on Chumsy App but is the host of the event in which you participate.
  3. When the given User is not your friend on Chumsy App but you are the host of the event in which. the given User takes part.
When is the group chat available?

The possibility of group chat appears when the event is attended by more than two people (host and participant). In such a situation the event host has the opportunity to open a group chat. In such case all participants can chat with each other through the group chat. The participant is not able to start a group chat first.


What is Community?

As part of your Chumsy account you can create your own community by inviting other Chumsys to your group of friends and accepting their invitations. In the "Feed" tab you can publish photos of past events, as well as events created by you - both public and private - directed only to the group of your Chumsy friends. In the "Friends" tab you can read the content posted by your Chumsy friends.

Can people outside my group of Chumsy friends see the content I post on Feed?

Yes, but only if you indicated that the post should be visible to the entire community while publishing the content. Otherwise, only people who are among your Chumsy friends can see the content you post on the Feed.

How can I add other Chumsys to Chumsy friends?

The possibility to add Chumsy to your group of Chumsy friends is displayed after opening the profile of a given Chumsy. You can search for new Chumsys by going to the "Community" tab and clicking on the plus icon in the upper right corner. You have 3 search options:
