How to PayRent
The Simplest and Most Convenient Rent Collection App
1. Sign up for free
Signing up for our rent collection app is quick and easy. You’ll need your federal tax ID (SSN or EIN) and banking information to get started. We’ll verify your identity on the spot to make sure payments can be safely transferred. You’ll be ready to accept rent payments in about 5 minutes.
2. Add your properties
Once you’re enrolled, adding rental units is a snap. Each unit can have its own settings for payment due date, partial payment acceptance, and blocking payments. On some service plans, transaction fees can also be absorbed, passed along to the renter, or split between both parties.
3. Invite your renters
Add your tenants to the platform and we’ll send out an email invitation for them to join the service then help them through the process of adding a payment method. We’re standing by via chat and phone to help them get up and running quickly.
Frequently Asked Questions
You’ve got questions. Here are some of the most common ones people ask. If your question is not answered here, chat with us
Do I need to bank with a specific bank?
No. Like most rent collection apps, PayRent can deposit your rent payments to any bank with branches in the United States, usually within 3 days from when rent payments are made.
Is there a maximum transaction limit?
Yes. Our maximum per transaction is $50,000 USD. However, there is no limit to the number of transactions per month or per property. Splitting rent payments into multiple transactions is acceptable.
Can I create more than one PayRent account?
Yes. You can create as many PayRent accounts as you need. Many Landlords create separate accounts for each property or group of properties. You will need a unique email address for each account.
How do my renters enroll in the service?
Once you are signed up and logged into your dashboard, you have the ability to send an invitation to your renters via email. They can click on the link in that email and sign-up for the service.
What are the options for paying ACH transaction fees?
As a landlord, you have the option to absorb the ACH transaction fees, pass them through to your renter, or split a percentage of the fees between both parties.
Who pays for credit card transaction fees?
Making rent payments using a credit card is considered to be a convenience for a renter and is significantly more expensive than ACH. Renters pay all credit card transaction fees. There is no option for landlords to absorb or split these fees.
Can I prevent renters from making payments?
Yes. Each property has an option to prevent payments which can be manually toggled on or off at your convenience.
Will I receive a 1099K?
Internal Revenue Service rules require that we distribute an IRS 1099-K only if you process more than $600 in rent payments annually through our service.
