If you have a credit on your account or need to pay a different amount from the usually rent amount, you will need to disable and cancel your Auto-Pay (autopay, auto payment, auto pay) if you have one set up. If you don't, you will still be charged the total amount of the Auto-Pay even if you don't owe that amount. These steps on how you would cancel your Auto-Pay:
Log into your Tenant Portal.
From the main Overview page, click the Payments tab at the top.
You should now see the Payments page. On there, you will see a button that reads, Cancel Auto-Pay.
Click Cancel Auto-Pay. You’ll get a popup to confirm you want to delete the auto-pay.
That’s it. Your recurring auto-payment is now deleted. If you want to enable it again, you’ll have to go through the process of creating a new Auto-Pay schedule.
Merchant Account Not Found
If you are trying to pay your rent and you come across this error - Merchant Account Not Found, it means that your landlord has not yet set up their merchant account to accept payments. In this instance, you're going to want to reach out to your landlord and let them know you want to make an online payment and how you should proceed.
