Introducing RentPay, the app we developed that helps Australia’s renters get more for their rent money. Here’s what you need to know.
At Rent.com.au, we believe you deserve more perks and privileges for being a good renter, and we’re building the technology to do just that.
We developed RentPay by listening to the 700,000 renters who visit Rent.com.au each month. So check it out, and see if you like it. It’s all part of our mission to enable and empower Australia’s renters.
What’s great about RentPay?
Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned renter, RentPay can make your rent money work for you.
MORE CONTROL & FLEXIBILITY
Choose to debit rent weekly, fortnightly or monthly from your bank, credit card or BPAY. You can even debit rent on payday, all while RentPay sends rent exactly when and how your agent wants it.
A SECURE, ENCRYPTED LEDGER
When your funds are deposited with RentPay, they are treated like funds in a bank account. Only you can access your funds, and we have security measures to protect your account from unauthorised access.
BUILD YOUR CREDIT SCORE
With Scorebuilder, your repayment history contributes to your credit score. This may help improve your borrowing capacity for life’s bigger purchases, like a car or property of your own.
NO HIDDEN FEES
It costs nothing to send or receive money using what’s in your RentPay account* or bank account.
*RentPay does not charge for sending money from a linked bank account or your RentPay account. There is a 0.99% fee for sending money using a credit card or debit card and a $1 fee per BPAY deposit.
How do I get started?
We’re compatible with all payment methods
Regardless of your agent or landlord’s preferred payment method, RentPay has you covered. We’ll pay directly into their bank account, so from your agent’s point of view, they’ll see your rent being paid with your payment reference information attached.
If you’re unsure of your agent’s information (such as their bank details), check your lease agreement or contact them directly to confirm the correct details before you start.
How do I pay my rent?
RentPay comes with a wallet, where we’ll store your funds, ready to pay the rent. When you set up RentPay, we’ll ask you how and when to pay funds into your wallet. We’ll also ask you when you want us to transfer the rent to your agent or landlord.
We suggest you set up automated rent payments. This means you’ll provide us with the amount and frequency of your rental payments. From there, we’ll make the payment based on your instructions. Or, if you prefer, you can make a manual payment too.
Get a complete history of your rental payments.
Having a clear record of past payment history can make all the difference to your next rental application, but it’s often tricky to find this information in one place. Thankfully, RentPay makes this easy!
