So folks who’ve been using WilliamPaid to pay their rent with credit cards will have to use other options. I’ll explain!
WilliamPaid Will Stop Accepting Rent Payments

I wrote about WilliamPaid before and used it once, but didn’t like having to pay a fee. But for some folks it was a good way to help meet minimum spending.
However, at 11:59 pm Central Standard Time on March 5, 2015 , you will NOT be able to use WilliamPaid to pay your rent. That’s because WilliamPaid is closing.
Say GoodBye to Earning Miles and Points Paying Rent With WilliamPaid
But there are still ways to pay your rent with a credit card.
How to Earn Miles & Points by Paying Your Rent
You can buy gift cards and load your Bluebird or Serve and send your landlord a check (Bluebird), send a check via Serve, or write a check to pay your rent.
Or you can load up to $200 per day and up to $1,000 per month from your credit card to your Serve and pay your rent with your Serve account.
Note: You’ll pay fees of ~$4 to ~$7 to buy each gift card.
Use Credit Cards to Buy Gifts Cards, Load to Bluebird, Then Send Your Landlord a Rent Check
You can also use rental payment services. But they charge fees when you use your credit card. And those can really add up!
And other services like RentPayment.com charge fees of ~$25 or more. But some landlords will pay the fee. Maybe your landlord will. 🙂
So it might not make sense to use those rental payment services unless you have a lot of minimum spending.
You’ll Pay a 2.99% Fee to Use RadPad
WilliamPaid is closing. You will NOT be able to use WilliamPaid to pay your rent with a credit card on March 5, 2015 at 11:59 pm Central Standard Time and onward.
But you can write or send your landlord a check with Bluebird after you’ve loaded your account with gift cards bought with a credit card.
And you can load your Serve with a credit card or gift cards and send your payment via Serve.
You can also use rental payment services like RadPad, but they charge high fees. So it might not be worth it unless you have to meet minimum spending.
