Right now, you might pay your rent using another online platform, or you give your landlord a money order or check directly.
To report your rent payments using RentTrack, we require you to pay rent through our online platform. You pay us, and then we send your landlord or property manager a paper check, with your name and address on it. This is why we require a physical address to send the check to (sorry, P.O. boxes are not accepted).
Why? This is how we are able to verify that you have paid your rent, and then report your rent to the credit bureaus, without involving your landlord. When you pay online, you're showing us that your rent payment was submitted and delivered each month - so we don't have to reach out to your landlord to confirm that you paid each month. All they have to do is cash the check when it arrives.
At this time, we can't deposit the funds into their bank account for you unless they have already signed up with us to collect rent online. If they're interested in receiving direct deposits, please put them in touch with us and we'd be happy to provide more information.
