"Rent is Due" Done Right

Text message-enabled ACH service to pay or collect rent effortlessly.

We send a text message when rent is due.

Renter texts WAIT to reschedule, or debit happens by default.

Rent appears in owner’s bank account under tenant’s address.

How does it work?
  • When you enroll, you give RentHelper permission to debit and credit your bank account.
  • We verify sender and receiver identities and confirm enrollment by text, phone or email.
  • After enrollment, rent is debited automatically unless the renter says to wait.
  • We use the automated clearinghouse (ACH) to securely debit and credit your account.

RentHelper: Hi Claire, this is just a reminder that a balance of $1,100 for use and occupancy only is still due. Can we start a payment plan? Claire: Okay, please debit $1,000. That's all I can do right now. RentHelper: Okay, we could do that, but it might be easier for the landlord and you if we take less more predictably. Could we start taking $250 every Friday as you get paid? Claire: Yes please. Thank you so much.

What customers are saying...

I wanted to lower my expenses as much as possible. RentHelper is less than a percent. I don’t have to keep checking my account to see if the rent was paid and who paid it.

RentHelper, and the nice notes it sends to the bank which they print on my statement – makes the accounting and monthly reconciliation SO CLEAN AND SIMPLE!! 🙂

Having a copy of all the text messages was a very big help.

I have one tenant paying by RentHelper, and it is well worth the very modest fee. Customer support by e-mail is fast, personable, and helpful. It has been a 100% positive experience.
