Payments can have the “Pending” status for one or two days. Furthermore, it can take up to three business days for RENTCafé to post payments to your account. Please allow sufficient time for payments to process.
If you are having difficulty submitting a payment, or the payment status is still pending on the Recent Activity tab after 3 business days please reach out to the Property Management office. It is up to your financial institution when they post to or remove pending transactions from your payment account.
On the top menu, click Payments. Then:
If the Auto-pay Setup tab is visible, click the tab, and then click the Delete button next to the automatic payment that you want to cancel.

It is up to the Property Management company whether credit card payments are accepted. You may check if your property management office accepts credit cards by clicking Payments from the top menu, and then clicking the Payment Accounts tab. Any fees associated with a payment are up to the Property Management company and will be noted on the Payment Confirmation page, on the last step before submitting an online payment. For any further questions regarding payment methods or fees, feel free to reach out to your Property Management office.
RENTCafé Resident Portal should only be used by the individual who has registered and logged in to submit payments. If you need to submit a payment on behalf of another tenant or if someone else needs to submit a payment on your behalf, please consult with your Property Management office.
