Additional Benefits of Paying Rent Online

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

Rent Reporting to Credit Bureaus

Rent is most often the largest monthly expense that tenants pay. Renters get rewarded for paying their credit card and car payments, so why shouldn’t they be rewarded for paying their rent on time? Through Black Opal Rental, tenants can enjoy a boost to their credit score just for paying their rent.
 

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

Landlords 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 pay rent with a credit card instead of leaving their landlord upset. 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.
