I have ever read on the book the way to speak whenever you feel reluntant to pay for your friends or someone by saying and doing " fork the money to someone". However, I tried to confirm it with two of my foreign friends and they said " No" . They have never heard of this to describe it.
So I want to confirm with you about it. And is there any other way similar to the above saying that describes the same thing?
Thanks a lot.
Additionally, you can 'fork out' for the meal (pay for it).
Welcome to the forum, emilyren.
Please note that a better title would have been 'fork the money to someone'.

"Chip in" to me means to pay your share (possibly an equal share). "Fork out" simply means to pay.
My friends and I have all chipped in to buy an expensive present for David's 30th birthday.
I just forked out £12,000 for new windows for my flat.
