Product Highlights


  • Collect: Online Payments

    Offer paperless self-service rent payments with a recurring payment option using Yardi Online Payments™.

Online payments are entered directly into Yardi Voyager®, with automatic deposits and easy bank reconciliation. ACH payments are sent to your bank via EFT the next day. Credit and debit card payments are processed within 2-4 days.

  • Collect: Check Payments

    Eliminate trips to the bank, lost checks, and manual keying errors while reducing NSF risk with Yardi CHECKscan™. Scan bulk batches of personal, corporate, bill pay, and cashier’s checks as well as money orders to greatly reduce processing time. Instantly create receipt batches in Voyager for all items and permanently store the image files — so you don’t need to make copies. Payments are transferred electronically to your financial institution the next day, optimizing your cash flow.

  • Collect: Walk-In Payments**

    Let residents pay rent in cash at over 20,000 participating retail locations. Our walk-in payment system (WIPS®) provides the ease of a one-stop experience and reduces money order issues for your staff. This service can be easily added to your existing Yardi cash management system. Electronic payment confirmations are automatically available in Voyager the next day. Funds are made available within three business days.

  • Pay: Vendors and Owners**

    Automate check writing and electronic vendor or owner payments with outgoing accounts payable. ACH payments are administered and distributed automatically, then instantly recorded in Voyager — speeding up processes, reducing manual errors, and cutting down on paper waste.
