San Diego-based PayLease has unveiled several mobile solutions that will enable residents to pay rent or HOA dues using a smartphone.
Residents of communities who use PayLease can now download a free iPhone or Android app to pay their rent with a mobile device.
PayLease has also designed a mobile-optimized website that is compatible for residents to make a payment with any smartphone or tablet.
In addition to paying rent and HOA dues, residents using the mobile app can sign up for email or text reminders, view current and past payments, and set up automatic payments. Residents can also use the app to make changes to their account or add new payment methods. As an added convenience and security verification, users can log into the app with their Google+ or Facebook credentials.
PayLease expects its mobile app to increase the number of online payments property managers receive while reducing delinquencies. In a survey of residents who use PayLease, more than 60% of users said they would regularly use a mobile app and/or text payment reminders.
Other reports show that mobile bill payments and purchases have skyrocketed over the past year. A recent survey conducted by Branding Brand also showed that one-third of 2014 Black Friday sales came from mobile devices – up 48% from the previous year.
Since its inception in 2003, PayLease has grown to serve thousands of property management companies nationwide and is among the fastest growing technology companies in the United States.
