Several Services To Accept and Make Rent Payments

We normally get our rent paid via check.   Lately though, unfortunately, one of our tenants has bounced a check and we no longer will take checks from them.    They've paid with cash or money orders.    Because of this problem I decided to look into what other methods there are to accept rent that might work for us.    I found the different options below and decided to just present them as a list.   I have not used any of these yet myself.

  1. Amazon Payments is great if your landlord will accept it. You can pay your rent and take advantage of credit card rewards without losing them to a fee.
