Ratings and Reviews
How about mortgage pay
Some friends using this app with good effect. This would work well for mortgage payments especially if linked in and with easy switch to fixed from variable. Also allowing overpayments on variable mortgages with real time calculated interest and time reduction on mortgage life, while also having redraw facility of over payments that shows the alternative consequences such as longer duration of the loan. Even a real time monitoring of the best interest rates with a switch now option that triggers a cost cleaving and switch to cheaper variable rate mortgage.
Decent app needs improvements
I like that the app encourages savings etc. but a lot of it doesn’t do things efficiently. Withdrawing, changing payment methods etc, all required contacting support. I wasn’t going to leave a review except the app forced me to email them and didn’t direct me to the rating unless I gave it 5 stars - I find it pretty deceptive. You should allow customers to skip and still leave a review. I don’t want to email you, because it should already be possible to do all the tasks inside the app. I do wonder what I’m paying for and contemplate whether I should continue using RentPay as it is quite expensive and simply causes a delay from payday to rent being received by the landlord. It has encouraged savings habits though.

John - thanks for taking the time to respond.
Rentpay will continue to evolve (get better, more efficient etc), you should be able to change payment methods without calling support (recent versions). To cancel, we do recommend a quick chat, to be honest its mainly there to make sure people understand they need to do the next payment themselves etc.
Happy to chat further - email@example.com, cheers Rentpay team
Build up your credit score by just paying rent
Finally, a way to make your rent pay contribute towards your credit report while you save for a deposit to apply for a loan to buy your own home and get out of the rental market… that was a long sentence.
I heard they are working on some kind of rewards system also. I hope the reward points can eventually be converted to $ towards your home deposit. That would make this app truly next-level revolutionary… thanks for tuning in.
