The easiest, fastest and least expensive option for the small landlord is Rentmatic, http://www.rentmatic.com.

I would not recommend Paypal: (1) clawback ability from tenant and (2) fees if tenant selects incorrect payment (credit, not friends and family, etc.). I use Hemlane.

Have you checked out RentPost (https://rentpost.com)? They do rent collection with full communication with tenants, work orders and accounting for expense tracking, etc. We've been using them for a while on our +/- 40 units and have been very pleased.

Their pricing is really good as well - always nice!

Ha, we actually use rentpost too. We're approaching 200 units now. We've only been with them for about 4-5 months, but it's been good. the software is easy enough. I think their support is what I appreciate the most. We were on SparkRent before they went out of business and tried a few others - just clunky and hard to use.

Their 'bank' presented a request for payment and Rentpayment said it was denied. My bank said they never got a RFP. Then Rentpayment stated the funds were on hold at my bank. Again my bank knew nothing of their requests.
Their last 'excuse' was that my bank was adjusting the balance in my account and denied payment when in actuality the overdraft protection kicked in.

Instead of following standard banking practices of submitting the RFP a 2nd time, they did not, they charged me a $45 NSF fee.

Phone agents know little and speak as much english. Customer service is not willing to help and only enforces managements directives of collecting fees. That department should be renamed, management service.
Website transactions were erased so I can no longer prove what happened.

I prefer Cozy because it is totally free for tenants and landlords to use their ACH service.

BiggerPockets has a summary of many of the rent collection tools. https://www.biggerpockets.com/rei/pay-rent-online-payment-tools/

Here is a comparison chart for some of the free rent collection services.

I have Quick books but they charge 2.9%. to accept rent payment - albeit efficiently. I do not like Paypal since it - for me - is not user friendly. And it takes too long for the funds to move to my bank from my account.

I love Quickbooks bookkeeping system since it downloads all the credit cards and checking accounts automatically. And best of all - it memorizes things that are repeats quickly. Making the data entry/update process much faster. And since it's on line, my bookkeeper can do it from her desk and I can be at my desk anywhere in the world that has internet connection. We can be working together or independently.

I just started using rentigo and I'm really happy (2 rental cycles). Tenants pay me through the app which they say is convenient. I like that they they have more than just rent payment so if you're looking for something a bit more then I'd suggest checking them out. http://(www.rentigo.com). Note: this is my first time using an online rent payment service so I can't really compare them to the other ones out there.

Don't try RentPayment.com. I filled out their application and they kept asking for more and more information which I provided over three weeks and then they turned us down after wasting our time for several weeks. Then I had to contact them to see if we were accepted before they said no. A real joke of a company. Would not recommend.

I agree. I signed up with them and their fees are ridiculous for tenants. $25.00 for a credit card payment, $9 for a debit card and $5.00 for ACH! Plus, one of my tenants paid by debit card and his card was declined twice when they ran it, but the next day, his card had gone through causing him to be double billed!!! To boot, I as the landlord was not notified that the payments had gone through or declined. I'm getting rid of them!

I recommend http://www.payyourrent.com because they process payments faster than any of the others out there. If you pay before 4pm eastern time your landlord gets the money in your account the next business day! I use to hate wondering when my check will be deposited and I don't have to do that anymore. Also, a live person always answers the phone any time I've ever had a question about my accounts or properties and they act like real people rather than robots at some call centers. Very cool company.
