Pay Rent with Your Credit Card or Bank Account
Or have the rent pulled directly from your paycheck!
RentDeduct™: Get Approved Even with Patchy Credit
Keep getting turned down for the homes you want?
We know sometimes things happen, and your credit might suffer. And it’s not always easy to be approved by landlords afterward.
But what if you could assure potential landlords that they’ll get their rent on time, every month?
With RentDeduct™, you can. We can deduct the rent directly from your paycheck, and securely send it to your landlord for you every month. They get paid on time, you get approved for the home you want.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
SparkRental transfers the rent electronically to the landlord, so you don’t have to do a thing.
On-time rent, no late fees, no hassling with licking stamps or writing checks. After the initial setup you can forget all about making rent payments.
Our pledge to you: SparkRental will make your life easier, and help you get accepted for more homes!
Or you can pay by credit card, debit card or eCheck (ACH/electronic payments)!
Rent on Your Credit Card or Debit Card
Paper checks are so 20th Century. Pay your rent on your credit card or debit card instead!
No envelopes, no checks, no postage. Just pay your rent with your credit card, the same way you pay for anything else online!
It’s fast, secure, and you even get to rack up some credit card reward. Win, win, win.
Get Approved for Better Housing
Have a few rough patches in your credit history?
It can be hard to get approved for good housing. Every time you think you’ve found the perfect home, the leasing agent turns down your rental application. Talk about frustrating.
But now you can offer any landlord to pull the rent directly from your paycheck. Their risk suddenly drops to near zero. You get approved, they get virtually guaranteed rent payments.
Your landlord will never see your banking information. Ever.
As for security? Our online rent payments use the Federal Reserve’s payment transfer system. It doesn’t get much more secure than that!
We take security extremely seriously. From our website’s full SSL (https) status to our complete PCI compliance, we maintain bank-level security.
If you’re paying by credit card, debit card or bank transfer, there’s no setup required. As soon as you create an account, you can fire off rent payments instantly.
If you’re using RentDeduct to have the rent deducted from your paycheck, the setup is still quick. We’ll give you a form to give to your HR department, so they can start splitting the rent off from your paycheck. It’s that simple!
Coming Soon: Rent Reporting to Credit Bureaus
Want to build your credit so you can buy a home? Or get a car loan, get better credit cards, and generally live a better life?
We’ll soon be featuring rent payment reporting to credit bureaus. You can build your credit while you rent, so you can get a good mortgage and buy a home sooner rather than later.
Better credit makes everything cheaper. We’ll help you get there!
Pricing – How Much Does It Cost?
Rent payments made by ACH (bank transfer/eCheck) are free! They’re also free for your landlord.
Credit Card Surcharge:
Rent payments made by credit card or debit card are subject to a 2.99% convenience fee. Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover all accepted… and they all charge for their services.
Having the rent deducted from your paycheck costs 1.9% of the rent for you, and 1.9% of the rent for your landlord. With that said, your landlord may select that they will pay the entire fee, or that you will be responsible for the fee. As the old timers used to say, “Them’s the breaks.”
No hidden pricing or gimmicks. That’s our pricing. Period.
