Homebase, a Smart Living Experience, Partners with Dwolla for Digital Rent Payments

The "smart" living application teams up with a payment platform to simplify the management of rental properties.

DES MOINES, Iowa, Feb. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Homebase, a platform that enables a "smart" living experience for multi-unit rental buildings, announced a partnership with Dwolla, Inc., a financial technology company, to enable its users to pay rent online by accessing the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network.

Homebase supplies multifamily properties with modern living solutions, such as smart locks, smart thermostats and wifi as an amenity. Through the Homebase application, residents are able to control their smart devices and make digital payments for rent, wifi and other living services and amenities. Homebase's flexible payments allow roommates and approved parents or guardians to pay towards a monthly balance, while property managers can easily manage and collect digital rent payments.

With Dwolla, Homebase offers residents and property managers free transactions through the ACH Network, an inexpensive and less cumbersome alternative to paper checks and credit cards.

"Dwolla was a natural fit," says Blake Miller, CEO & Founder of Homebase. "It enables us to disrupt what is currently happening, which is processing a rent payment and costing people money to do that. With Dwolla, we can provide more value to our customers."

Miller founded Homebase in 2016 to connect property managers with building automation to deliver a more modern and simple residential experience. Homebase integrated with Dwolla in 2017, to facilitate payments through the Homebase app.

Dwolla, Inc. is a financial technology company that offers businesses an onramp to the Automated Clearing House Network, the electronic funds-transfer system used by U.S. financial institutions that moves $43 trillion annually.

Homebase integrated Dwolla's white-label ACH API to maintain their brand and enhance their users' experience, in addition to enjoying fee-free transactions through the application. Transfers made by residents to their landlords and payments made by property managers to maintenance or other service providers are initiated by Dwolla.
