Self Storage

Accept Credit Cards for Self Storage Payments at No Cost to You

Your Customers are Asking to Pay Their Self Storage Bills by Credit or Debit Card - But you can not afford to pay the cost of accepting credit card payments - usually about 3% of the total payment. To make matters worse, your credit card contract, and in some states specific state laws, will not allow you to charge any extra fees of your customers who pay with credit cards.

You Receive the Full Self Storage Payment. We pay all transactions cost out of the “Convenience Fee”. You pay nothing.

Here’s How it Works…

Online - Your Web Site

You add a link to your web page - this could also be a "Make Payment Online" button.

Your customers enter the payment information and actively check the “Accept Convenience Fee” check box.

The credit or debit card is charged in real time. Payment made.

Online - Our Web Site

We can add you to our makemonthlypayments.com site. You inform your customer that self storage rental payments for you can be made through that site.

On the Phone with Your Staff

Your staff enters the payment information, explains the Convenience Fee (we can give you the script to do that) and checks the “Accept Convenience Fee” check box for your customer when they verbally agree.

The credit or debit card is charged in real time. Payment made.

When Do You Get the Money?

All money is handled by our banking partner Moneris.

1. After closing, on the day the payment is made, the bank that issued the card funds the money into Moneris’ account.
2. The next day Moneris forwards a request through the Federal Reserve to transfer the funds into your specified depository account.
3. That funding is done on the second day after the payment is made.

NOTE: If you have your depository account with either RBC Centura or Harris Bank, sister companies of Moneris, you will get your funding one day earlier – next business day.

Simply Easier Payments and Moneris are partnered to help you provide better service to your customers at no cost to you.

Automated Billing of Monthly Payments

In addition to taking payments online and over the phone, we can also automatically bill your customer's monthly payments. We can also set this up for automated weekly payments.

Save and Secure Storage of Credit Card Information

The Credit Card Association has very strict PCI Data Security Standards with which you must comply if you maintain credit card data on file. In addition the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act has customer privacy restrictions you must comply with.

When you use our service to store this information securely online you effectively pass almost all of these liabilities to us. All of our systems are fully compliant with these standards. We employ a full time staff whose only responsibility is keeping our service fully compliant with these and other security issues as they change.

Is This Legal? Always a good question to ask. Check out the link for more detail, but the short answer is it is as long as we set you up correctly.
