Pay Rent Anytime, Anywhere

Keep It Private

When you pay rent online there is always the risk that bad actors can get a hold of your financial information. To minimize that risk, PayRent never stores any of your financial information on our website. We comply with the strictest standards from the credit card and banking industries, keeping your financial information encrypted and away from prying eyes. Landlords also never see any of your bank or credit card information and neither do we.

Pay Rent From Anywhere

Working late or going on vacation shouldn’t stop you from making your rent payment on time. Set up a one-time future payment, or weekly, semi-monthly or monthly recurring payments so your busy life doesn’t affect your reputation.

Track Automatically

Know exactly when your rent payment was received by your landlord and keep track of payment history for quick and easy record keeping. Access your PayRent account whenever you need it from your smartphone, tablet or PC.

What Are The Benefits of Paying Rent Online?

While landlords certainly benefit from collecting rent online, the benefits don’t stop there. Tenants also see several benefits when they’re allowed to pay rent online.

 

  • Account Balance Tracking

  • Renters no longer have to wonder about the status of their accounts. Online rent payment platforms allow them to see exactly how much they owe at any given time and even show upcoming charges and payments. These accessible digital records ensure that landlords and renters are on the same page.
  • Secure Rent Payments

  • When Renters pay rent online, their payments are much more secure than paying by check or cash. Cash and Money orders are easily lost, and banking information displayed on the bottom of paper checks leaves the renter more likely to become a target for fraud.
  • Convenience

  • Landlord’s who allow their renters to pay rent online show respect for the renter’s schedule and time. Tenants can pay their rent when it is convenient for them to do so. There is no frustration at the bank or property office being closed. Instead of writing and mailing a check, they can submit their rent payment on their phone while they enjoy their morning coffee. Better yet, renters can schedule payments to process on the date of their choosing automatically.
  • Fewer Late Fees

  • Because online rent payments allow renters to pay rent on their schedule, they’re less likely to be charged a late fee due to a circumstance beyond their control. Rent reminders and automatic payments give tenants the tools they need to make their payments on time, every time.
  • Payment Flexibility

  • While most independent landlords don’t have the means to accept credit card payments, those using an online rent collection can. If renters are worried about their cash flow for a month or two, they can charge their rent payment instead of leaving their landlord hanging or taking out an expensive payday loan. While most rent payment platforms charge a fee for credit card payments, the cost is lower than a late fee or a bounced check fee in most situations.

Frequently Asked Questions

You might still have a few questions. If we haven’t answered them below, click here to chat with us.
We’re here to help!

Does my landlord see my bank or credit card information?

No one can see your bank or credit card information. Once you add it to your payment methods, the information is encrypted and stored in a secure electronic vault at the bank. It is inaccessible by your landlord or anyone at PayRent.

Can I use PayRent to pay rent online if my landlord hasn’t signed up?

PayRent is designed to help connect landlords and renters securely through our platform. Unfortunately, if your landlord isn’t enrolled we cannot send them your rent payment. We’d appreciate a referral from you though. Click here to invite them.

Can I use more than one payment method for a single rent payment?

This depends on the settings your landlord has for the property. If your landlord is willing to accept partial payments, you can use as many payment sources as necessary to pay your rent. You can store multiple credit cards and bank accounts to give yourself some options when it comes time to pay rent.

Do you have a mobile app?

We do not have a mobile app at this time. However, PayRent.com is a mobile responsive website that is easy to use on any smartphone or tablet. You can pay your rent from anywhere.

Can I pay my rent with a credit card?

Yes! We take Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express as valid forms of payment. To use a credit card, add one (or more) to your payment methods in your account.

How much does it cost to pay my rent?

This is determined by your landlord’s settings. They can choose to pay the ACH fees, split them, or pass them along to their tenants. Talk with your landlord or contact us to see who is paying the fees on your property.

Do you keep track of when my payments are received by my landlord?

Yes. We keep a record of each stage a payment goes through from scheduled to complete. You can view the payment status from your renter dashboard. If you require payment history, feel free to contact us.

Does PayRent provide a receipt for my rent payment?

PayRent keeps a history of all your payments in your renter dashboard. When a payment is completed you will receive a confirmation email that can serve as a receipt of payment. Your landlord will also be notified each time you submit a rent payment. 

Can I pay my rent with Zelle or Venmo?

We wouldn’t recommend it. If you accidentally send money to the wrong person, there is no guarantee that you’ll ever see that money again. PayRent keeps your information safe and secure.

PayRent is on a mission to build a rent collection app that fosters a positive and productive relationship between renters and landlords. We focus less on transactions and more on the people behind them.
