Stop Chasing Rent with the HERO Payments System

HERO PM is proud to introduce our new online payment system, which encompasses both our Standard and Pre-Authorized payment solutions.

With the Standard payment solution, tenants can setup automatic recurring payments for the entirety of their lease, without needing to log in to their account each month to process their payments. This solution costs 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction (per PayPal; payable by the property manager). With the Standard payment system, you can also allow tenants and guests to make one-time rent payments of their amount due, owners to pay one-time payments of any amount, and applicants to pay their online application fees. You can add a convenience fee for the use of the Standard payment solution, which is added to the tenant’s, owner’s or applicant’s amount due.

The new Pre-Authorized payment solution allows tenants to setup pre-authorized payments for the entirety of their lease, for only $0.50 per transaction (per PayPal; payable by the property manager). Tenants will log in to their online account each month to quickly and easily process their payment. Or, with tenant’s permission, you can process their payment in your Control Panel directly, in RP Management > Payments > Process Pre-approved Payments. You can add a convenience fee for the use of the Pre-Authorized payment solution, which is added to the tenant’s amount due.

The seamless integration of the HERO Payments system into the HERO PM RP Management system creates a completely unified system. One logon, all the tools you need in one place, integrated with each other. It’s that easy.

    • The HERO Payments system utilizes PayPal to process online payments. This results in the most comprehensive security and fraud protection available for you, and your clients, with the utmost protection from liability.
    • The HERO Payments system protects the privacy of its users. When clients make payments through the HERO PM interface, you never see their bank account or credit card information.

    • PayPal processes billions of dollars in payments each year, allowing continual improvements of anti-fraud protection. As a result, PayPal’s loss rate is significantly lower than the industry average. PayPal also works with federal law enforcement to catch criminals.
    • Clients’ confidential payment transactions are automatically encrypted in transit using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with the highest level of encryption.
    • Once clients’ information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically.

    • Fully qualified trust accounting ensures all transactions are properly handled. You and your clients can be assured that financial transactions and records will always be accurate, always detail each transaction fully, and provide a complete audit trail.
    • Trust account funds can be tracked separately from other funds in accordance with the Real Estate Commissions rules prohibiting “co-mingling” of funds.
    • The HERO Payments system provides the assurance, security and comfort needed in today’s marketplace.
