Back in October of 2016 RadPad shut down its rent payment service and was going out of business. But in January of this year the LA start-up found itself a new home. Dallas-based LandlordStation purchased them for an undisclosed price. LandlordStation, which provides tenant screening, felt that RadPad complemented its business. Now you can pay your rent through RadPad once again.
Even though RadPad charged a 2.99% fee for rent payments made by credit card, it was a good avenue to rack up points or complete spending requirements. One of the biggest draws was that the Chase Sapphire Reserve card was coding at travel (3x UR points) when used on RadPad app through ApplePay or AndroidPay. For other credit cards you’re better off using Plastiq with a 2.5% fee.
The app is available again and you can once again make payments. ApplePay or AndroidPay are still listed as options, but I tested the latter and it gave me an error. Maybe they still have kinks to work out.
Keep in mind that towards the end people starting experiencing lots of problems while paying their rents. Checks were bouncing and their customer service wasn’t very responsive. But they’re under new owners now, so it might be different.
Are you willing to give them an other try?
