RE/MAX Executive Realty Partners With Zipmark to Accept Secure Digital Checks for Rent Payments

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2013) - Zipmark™, a pioneer in mobile and online payments, today announced that RE/MAX® Executive Realty, a RE/MAX affiliate, has made Zipmark available as a rent payment option. Residents of RE/MAX Executive Property Management now have the ability to pay their rent online or via a mobile phone using Zipmark's secure digital check. Once payment is submitted with Zipmark, funds are deposited into the appropriate RE/MAX Executive Realty operating account on the next business day.

RE/MAX Executive Property Management residents now no longer need to mail a check or visit the property manager's office. RE/MAX's deployment of Zipmark follows on the heels of both IBS and RentShare selecting Zipmark to conduct digital check rent payments for their respective property management clients.

"RE/MAX Executive Realty is staying ahead of the curve in leveraging payment technology to simplify and improve the payment experience for both the property manager and the residents," said Jay Bhattacharya, CEO and co-founder of Zipmark. "Digital checks from Zipmark are the best in class solution as businesses seeking to improve the speed, security and convenience of payments. The rental market is hungry for a payment option that addresses these needs and keeps it easy for tenants. Which is why replacing outdated paper checks with Zipmark is a smart choice all-around." 

"I've tried to ensure that our residents have access to the most convenient tools available. Residents have been asking for the ability to pay online for a while," said Bill Wright, Founder of RE/MAX Executive Realty. "However, other online payment platforms didn't make my life or my residents' lives easier. Zipmark is great for my business and it's great for my residents. No complaints!"
