Frequently Asked Questions

When paying rent or other items on Burbz

Is it free?

For ACH, it is free.  For card payments, there is a 2.75% charge.

Why pay by card?

Card payments process faster.  Therefore, if time is of the urgency that payment is processed immediately to the landlords account.  Otherwise, standard ACH takes 4-7 days to process. 

Residents typically consider card payments for move-in fees to quickly reserve their spot, to avoid late fees or other penalties.  Or, some like to accrue credit card points and build their credit.

Can I make ther non-rent payments?

Yes.  Residents can pay their security deposits, pet deposits, late fees and even reimbursables if the resident is responsible for that cost.

Can I track previous payments?

Yes.  Click Rent on the main side menu.  Then click Payment to view a history of all your payments made through Burbz.

Why does ACH take 4-7 days?

To keep it simple, ACH requires a longer transition period to assure the sender has enough money in their accounts.  While payments are sent and received in a single day, banks prefer to hold onto that payment for several days to avoid any overdrafts of insufficient funds.

Does my money sit in Burbz account during ACH?

No.  Burbz utilizes Stripe as a payment processing partner.  Technically, Burbz never touches your money during any point of the process.  We are simply the display / messenger platform.
