Property management applications and property management SaaS providers are perfectly suited to integrate with a payment aggregator or PayFac, aka Payment Facilitator, because their requirement for a simple way to process on-going monthly payments is essential to their business model. And an integrated payments solution – such as Payfac in a Box™, easily solves for that need.
Payment Facilitation also known as Payment Aggregation allows any real estate or property management application to enroll and set up sub-merchant accounts to accept payments with both credit card and ACH very quickly. By partnering with the right payment facilitator, real estate applications can easily onboard their entire user base of real estate merchants, making for a frictionless payments experience. This is a critical customer acquisition tool and a major benefit to the end-user of any real estate related software system, in this case, any renter needing to pay their monthly rent.
Real estate companies and property managers need an easy way to complete contracting, onboarding, and manage monthly lease payments. The Singular BillPAY APIs built into a custom Payfac in a Box™ integration, make this an easy process for your developers and your users who need to pay bills. Our system includes the ability to settle into different DDAs if each property, or set of properties, is tied to their bank account. By providing the raw processing data back to you as the software developer, it allows you to AUTOMATE memo posting and updating of financial and accounting reporting to your property manager. This reporting functionality also cuts down on the expense of year-end accounting at tax time.
Rent payments are recurring/monthly and tend to be the largest bill a consumer pays and collecting these payments on-time, every time is essential to a smoothly running property management business. There are so many ways a PayFac software integration works for real estate SaaS systems.
