RadPad Ends Their Free Android Pay Rent Promotion
Unfortunately RadPad has announced they are ending their no credit card fee Android Pay promotion (it’s a good thing I told you to wait 24 hours before buying a device). RadPad cited the huge increase in users and volume for the end of the promotion, some statistics:
- Android Pay previously represented 5% of all rent payments, now it represents 70^
- Thousands of people signed up
- More than $5,000,000 in rents have been paid using this promotion
If you signed up for the promotion before today (August 24th) and your rent is charged on or before August 31st, 2016 then there will be no credit card fee. After that date the regular fee of 2.99% for credit cards will be charged. Keep in mind that debit cards also come with a $4.95 fee now as well.
It’s pretty disappointing that this promotion has ended already, I know some people specifically bought devices that would run Android Pay in good faith. RadPad could have avoided some of the frustration and anger that is likely coming their way by adding a disclaimer about the end date being December 31st, 2016 or until the budget limit is reached.
