New Pricing and a Better Look Makes it Easier for Any Renter and Any Landlord to Pay And Accept Rent FREE Online via Credit Card, Debit Card or Bank Account
CHICAGO, Feb. 15, 2012
CHICAGO , Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — WilliamPaid.com, a leading site where any tenant can pay rent online via credit card, debit card or bank account today announced new pricing, a new site design, and many positive changes to the user interface. The most important new feature on WilliamPaid.com includes pricing that allows users to pay rent online free when using a bank account (checking, savings, and money market). For those who want even greater flexibility, William Paid offers a FlexPay option that allows users to pay some or all of their rent online using a credit or debit card.
The result — a better look and improved navigation making it even more convenient and easier for any tenant to pay rent online. Tenants are not required to have their landlords registered in order to pay rent online.
“As a site dedicated to renters, we listened to our customers' needs by redesigning the site and making the navigation easier,” said Evan Silverman , CEO at WilliamPaid. “WilliamPaid will continue to offer tenants the most flexible and value added platform to pay rent online via credit card, debit card or a bank account. We accept payments anytime, anywhere, anyhow via any combination of the three available options.”
Paying bills such as rent online can help build creditworthiness. WilliamPaid offers users the opportunity to have their rent payments reported to PRBC, Inc., a division of Microbilt, a nationally recognized credit bureau. Each month WilliamPaid will display a user's current bill payment credit score so they can see how their creditworthiness is progressing.
“On time rent payments can help establish and build creditworthiness. PRBC Consumer Credit Reports are perfect for consumers who have not yet established a verifiable credit history, but want to demonstrate that they pay their bills on time,” stated Silverman.
The PRBC® Report provides lenders with alternative data when making non-traditional decisions to extend credit to consumers in new markets. The report incorporates the FICO® Expansion® Score – a credit risk score designed specifically to help lenders.
“With all of these exciting changes, WilliamPaid users will continue to experience the same unparalleled service, convenience, security, and enhanced product offerings. We are looking forward to a successful year and want our users to keep on the lookout for new WilliamPaid products to come online as 2012 unfolds,” added Silverman.
