RadPad Shuts Down
RadPad is sending emails to users indicating the company will no longer process rent payments. Although the email mentions tomorrow, October 13, 2016, I would NOT risk trying to make a payment today.
That’s because RadPad says folks should find an alternative means to make rent payments effective immediately.
The company has not published an official statement, yet. But several users on Reddit have received the email notification.
