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.
This is an unfortunate event. But RadPad appeared to have a few issues over the past couple of months, including an abrupt end to an Android Pay promotion.
As an alternative, you can use Plastiq to make rent payments. But do the math to see if paying fees is worth the miles and points you’ll earn with credit card payments..
