Finally tenants can pay rent online through credit/debit card and ACH. American Volume, one of the world’s leading payment processing providers, has announced the launch of its fully incorporated platform for rent payment processing - Rentigo.
Rentigo.com the creation of 2 payment processing entrepreneurs, was born out of a need to provide landlords and property management firms with a way to streamline their rental collection process while simultaneously reducing cost and the legwork involved in chasing checks.
For residents of rented properties, Rentigo.com allows them to pay their rent by card or ACH, giving them the opportunity of automating rental payments to recur each month, while in turn saving on late fees and bank debt payments.

According to the Head of Business Development and one of the Founders of Rentigo, Maya Har-Noy, “It occurred to us that there was a distinct need in the property market. These days you can pay for almost everything online. So why not rent?”
She went on to say, “We have already had several decades experience between us in the rental and payment processing markets, so it seemed the natural progression. From in-depth research we have conducted, it's clear tenants want to pay their rent without having to send checks each month. This opens up a bigger market to the landlords who can pick from a more diverse pool of potential tenants”.
