“Social Account” enables İşCep users to request money transfers to their designated accounts for occasions such as dinners, birthday parties, weddings from their families and friends and can respond quickly to organization requests relayed to them.
With “Social Account” feature, İşCep users can add contacts from their contact lists to “the Social Account Directory” that is special for this feature and invite them to contribute their organisations and they can also monitor the turnout of the organizations. Invitations can be sent up to 50 people per organization through SMS or push notification.
While creating an organization via Social Account, a target date or a target amount should be selected.

Social Account feature can be used by İşCep users who have smart phones with iOS or Android operating systems. Before using Social Account, İşCep users are prompted once to verify the user agreement linked to the feature, as well as to specify the accounts where funds to be collected or sent for the events.
