What is a payment request?

Manage your entire rental cycle from our secure and centralized platform, even after a booking is made.

A HousingAnywhere payment request is a fast and simple way of asking your tenants for money. You can create multiple payment requests in one go with our payment plans.

You can create and send payment requests to collect a range of payments, e.g., rent beyond the first month (paid when the tenant books your property), deposits, or other housing costs, such as furnishings.

Payment requests are online and save you time and paperwork. Our system sends your tenant payment reminders in the lead-up to the due date you set for the request.

Your tenant will pay a non-refundable service fee (2.5%) for each payment request. This service fee is currently charged for properties in all regions, excluding the U.S.A. and the U.K. The service fee helps us improve the usability, reliability, speed, and security of payment requests.

HousingAnywhere payment requests are:

  • fast (instantly received by the tenant),

  • traceable (automatically updated in your Payment Request Overview), and

  • secure (every request is assigned a trackable reference ID).
