What is RentHero all about?
RentHero is a online rental management platform that caters to tenants and landlords in Singapore. For now, we largely serve the tenant community in providing a way for tenants to pay their rent online and earn miles at the same time. Do look out for our upcoming services to promote greater transparency for tenants and landlords.
Do all landlords accept payments through RentHero?
Yes, all landlords can accept payment through RentHero. Landlords do not require an account with RentHero to receive payments and they will receive the payment as per normal. In fact, you do not even need to inform them of anything! We collect payment through our website and transfer it to the landlord on your behalf.
What cards are accepted on RentHero?
All Singapore-issued Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards are accepted. Please note that international cards as well as AMEX cards are currently not accepted. Please note that not all cards will earn the reward points and miles. You can find a list of our cards that do so on our home page. Ultimately, tenants are responsible to check with their credit card issuer on whether rental payments are supported through our platform.
Why is there a service fee?
The service fee covers the cost of making the transaction possible, as well as the upkeep of our website.
How secure is RentHero?
RentHero does not manage or store your full credit card number. We use a PCI approved payment gateway certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1, the highest level of certification available in the payments industry.
Are my payments safe with RentHero?
All payments are made and held in a secure local bank in Singapore and are separate from our operational funds. Monies received never spend more than 48 hours in our bank account as we tend to receive payments on or 1 day in advance of the due date.
Can I use RentHero for payments other than rent?
No. Currently all transactions must be supported by a tenancy agreement that clearly indicates the landlord's name, bank name and bank account number. This is for regulatory purposes.
