Sign up spouse and kids and split rent and use vgc for 1% and no radpad fee.

What the question? We are four people and each pay part of the rent in a a separate radpad account. Use vgc so only pay activation fee and radpad treats as debit so they don't charge a fee

They'll allow you to pay rent with four or five separate accounts for the same address?

Yup. The idea is that your splitting rent with your roommates or housemates.

Oh awesome! But if you use that option, can you designate one person to have his/her name on the check (with no one else's)? Or does RADPAD send 4-5 separate checks to your landlord with each one having their name on it?

The highest VGC is 500 as well correct?

No idea who's on the check. I assume All 4? And yes vgc caps at 500 afaik

When putting in payment details you don't get to specify cc or dc. Radpad will automatically process vgc or mcgc as debit?

If I do the pool rent option and pay from 'dc' will the names of the other people be on rent or only mine (it's only me and my wife but if wanted to split 3 ways in order to pay full rent wanna make sure it only lists both our names as its what's on the lease)

Gotcha. Well, they called and are working on it. Seems their bank shows check cleared. It'll get worked out. They replied on Twitter immediately and called me within 30 minutes of email sending.

We actually do make money on this product because about 45 percent all renters using it are on a credit card, which is hard to believe. But if you look at the economics of renting today, more renters are spending more of their income on rent, more renters live check to check, and more renters are willing to put it on a credit card because essentially it gives them a 3 percent loan and it gives them 30 days extra to pay their rent. It's a very popular feature with young people.

I think the surprising part is that people are signing leases that are way above their means. Reckless.

IME, the only reason why one should ever pay a late fee on rent is because they made a mistake and forgot. Paying late because you don't have the money (barring unforeseeable circumstances) is ridiculous. Should've never signed the lease.

I agree wholeheartedly with your perspective, but I think there may be a situation which you may not be considering. What if someone signed a lease that they could easily afford and then there was an unexpected income change in their family which made rent very difficult to pay? Could it be that many more people are losing their jobs nowadays?

Update from RadPad:

I am so sorry for the trouble you have experienced this morning! We are unsure what the error is that we are having with American Express and our payment processor for Android Pay since this is a new launch for us. We have reached out to our payment processors and they are looking into this issue but we can’t say for sure when this will get resolved. Unfortunately, I am going to have to suggest that you pay their landlord directly this time around.

Again I am so sorry, we hope that you come back to schedule your rent payment next month, when this should no longer be a problem!

In the radpad app, on the screen where you enter the CC info it should have a button on the button for Android Pay (little green robot guy). Click that button.

Post by: rileywiles23 on August 24, 2016, 07:41:41 PM
When we launched our promotion with Stripe and Android Pay a little over two weeks ago, allowing Android users to pay rent with a credit card through Android Pay for no fee, we had no idea just how many people would sign up. Within days of the announcement, the promotion spread like wildfire across social media, blogs, Reddit and other news outlets.

Prior to the promotion, Android Pay users represented less than 5% of all rent payments on RadPad. Six days after the promotion, Android Pay users represented 70% and the number continues to climb. Thousands of renters have signed up in the last two weeks to pay their rent using Android Pay, equating to more than $5M in rents.

Although we are overwhelmed that the promotion has gained so much traction, we drastically underestimated just how many people would sign up to pay their rent with Android Pay; and within only a few weeks we've surpassed the budget for the entire year that was allocated to subsidize the credit card fee.

That is why we regret to inform everyone that beginning today, August 24th, 2016 we will no longer be able to offer the Android Pay promotion.

Anyone who signed up and qualified for the promotion prior to August 24th, 2016 will still enjoy free credit card fees as long as their rent is charged on or before August 31, 2016. However, we will not be able to offer the promotion through the end of the year. After August 31, 2016, the regular 2.99% fee will apply if you choose to continue using your credit card through Android Pay.

As an alternative to credit, you can also utilize one of the following payment options:

●Switch to ACH on RadPad's website (free)●Switch to Debit ($4.95 fee)

We want to apologize to all of our users that were hoping to utilize this promotion through the end of the year. We understand the confusion & anger this has caused many of you, and rightfully so. We've learned a valuable lesson and the last thing we ever want to do, is lose your faith and trust.

If you have any questions or just need to vent frustration, you can reach me directly on Twitter: @jonathaneppers.

Sincerely,
Jonathan Eppers, CEO

As predicted
https://medium.com/@paulwithap/the-sky-is-not-falling-a-redaction-to-my-previous-deleted-story-about-radpad-fb5b63fb1882#.n947iyiif

From reddit https://m.reddit.com/r/churning/comments/525jj2/radpad_having_cash_flow_issues/d7jw3kr?utm_source=mweb_redirect&compact=true
 I'm the OP of that Medium post. The reason I pulled it is because I completely overreacted. Instead of reaching out to Radpad to solve the problem, I wrote an angry, stupid blog post based on conjecture and rumors.

RadPad immediately reached out to me to resolve the issue, and literally hand delivered a new check from the proper account to my landlord since I live in LA. I honestly have nothing but good things to say about them and really feel like an idiot for making my original post and starting a witch hunt.

EDIT: My updated post on Medium

As I said I'm sick and traveling - typing this all in my phone, so I'll try to clean up everything more as I am able to.

I exaggerated parts of what my friend said, and was generally just pissed at them for laying him off. They did have minor cash flow issues that they have corrected by getting rid of some people. Businesses do it all the time. A lay off doesn't mean a company is going under. I took advantage of the situation and really overreached with what I said. I was pissed off about the issue with my rent, pissed about my friend getting laid off, and I overreacted and pretended to have way more knowledge about their finances than I do.

I personally will continue to pay my rent with RadPad, and if it has benefitted you thus far, I'd encourage you to do the same.

Honestly, not the same thing. RadPad was giving 3x pts with CSR and Prestige. It was also allowing debit cards for free (changed to small fee in the past month or two) which was perfect for PPMC. This is going to be hard to replace.

$120+ $150 (effective annual fee) < 105k+ UR

Not the best there is but it's hard to pass up that many UR for an extra $120. The alternative of not hitting the spend would really make the whole thing not worth it.

Only have 1 data point but has 7/11 stopped allowing buying Paypal or any VGC's with credit cards? The clerk let me swipe my card but the system clearly rejected it and he said all 7/11's have become cash only. Anyone else have success?

Had the same question, but it was just 1 data point.

Right but I guess the point is, it's probably more appropriate to talk about the Paypal MyCash cards in the PayPal MyCash thread. This way people who are trying to buy those cards for other purposes outside of RadPad get your data point.

FYI my rent payment posted as category REAL ESTATE AGENTS AND MANAGERS-RENTALS and only got 1x pts this month. I think this short lived 3x ride is over.

If for example my rent is $1,000/month and I have $500 from the PayPal cards added to my account, can Radpad charge my PPDC for the $500 and charge the rest to the credit card attached to my PP account?
