Before adding a payment method for a tenant, you first need to have added an owner bank account against the property - read the article on how to do this here.
I’ve added the tenant and BPAY details, but the system is showing a zero amount next to the tenant in the Payment Methods table.
You can add the amount the tenant will pay by clicking on Edit Amount next to Payment Methods. Add the amount the tenant will be paying in the Amount field next to the correct tenant. REMINDER: Make sure the total rent payable adds up to 100%.
Can my tenant use the same BPAY details to pay any invoices such as water usage?
No, these BPAY details are for rental payments only and any payments made using these details will automatically allocate to rent and pay to the owner. Tenant invoices will each have their own unique BPAY reference.
