Rent Payments Amounts
Tenants can choose to pay their balance or a different amount. You are in control of whether the tenant is given the option to make partial payments. If you don’t elect to turn on partial payments the tenant will only have the option pay their total or an amount greater than their total.
If you elect to turn on partial payments, your tenants can choose a payment amount less than their total amount due. This is useful if you have negotiated an arrangement where your tenant will make one payment by x date and another by y date.
Rent Payment Options
By default all tenants have the ability to pay rent via a checking or savings account. You can also use RentMindMe to record the receipt of cash, money orders, personal checks or other payment methods.
In the event you want to accept debit or credit card payments you can elect the add on to your subscription which will allow your tenants the flexibility to pay with either a debit or credit card. This option adds flexibility and allows your tenants to earn points when they use their cards.
Regardless of whether your tenant pays with a bank account or a card, you can expect that you will receive the full rent amount deposited into your account.

RentMindMe sends your tenants instructions that outline what they need to do to complete their profile.
The focus of this communication is on setting up their bank account so they are ready to pay rent when the due date arrives.
RentMindMe provides a single source of communication for you and your tenants. From rent notifications to receipts to online submission and management of maintenance request, everyone involved stays up to speed with communication.
Tenants can receive rent reminders via text / SMS and our bulletin functionality lets you communicate with one or all tenants using a single message. Your bulletin is delivered via text, email and in-app so you can rest assured that your tenants will receive your messages.

RentMindMe processes payments through ACH which is very similar to your tenant writing you a check.
Funds from rent payments will be deposited into your account within 2-3 business days depending on when the payment is initated and whether or not there are any holidays happening.
As an example, if a holiday like July 4th happens in the middle of the week, your rent payment will be delayed by a day due to the bank holiday and the federal banking system being closed.
Lease Management FAQs:
Yes! In the event you need to increase, decrease or add a monthly fee – it’s easily done with RentMindMe.
Examples of why you might need to increase a monthly fee include:
- A tenant gets a pet, you’d need to add a pet fee.
- Your tenant is using more or less water or other utilities than you originally estimated.
- Your tenant receives a temporary subsidy to help them recover from an emergency.
To make the adjustments, navigate to the Proeprty Details page of the applicable rental unit. On the property details you will see a summary of the monthly charges. You can edit those monthly charges and save your changes.
NOTE: Changes made to a rental unit’s monthly charges will be made on a move forward basis. All historical invoices for the unit will have the orginal lease charges.
You will need to terminate the lease in our system and re-enter the new terms.
To terminate a lease, navigate to the property detail of the property you need to update. Click the terminate lease button. You will need to make sure you clear up any outstanding balance. Enter a new lease for the same property with the new due dates or lease terms.
Don’t worry, your tenant won’t need to add a bank account again, it stays intact with their profile. If they have setup AutoPay, they will need to choose a new date to have their AutoPay execute.
To create a custom invoice, you can click the link on the dashboard below the Payments summary. You will have the ability to create a line item summary of charges that make up a custom invoice. Once you create the invoice, your tenant is notified about the bill immediately.
When it comes time to pay rent, your tenant will be able to choose whether they pay the most recent balance or the full amount due. Our rental management software is designed to have custom invoices absorb into the tenant’s full amount due giving them the time to be ready to pay the money owed but enforcing its collection as well.
You can read more about custom invoices in our blog post.
RentMindMe makes it easy to manage tenant enrollments.[/caption]
There are two ways of understanding your tenant’s enrollment status in RentMindMe.
If you are only worried about one tenant the Property Details page under My Rentals will show you the current status of whether a tenant has created their RentMindMe account, verified their bank account and whether or not they have enabled AutoPay.
If you have setup several properties at one time and need to manage at a higher level, you will find a link on your dashboard labeled “Manage Tenant Enrollments”. Clicking this link will open the Enrollment Overview page. This page will give you a summary of each property you manage and whether or not the tenants of that property are ready to pay rent online.
