By subscribing to the Service, using the Service, or permitting someone else to use the Service on your behalf, you agree to the terms of the Agreement.
2.1. Access Methods
The Service is accessible by using a Site, which is accessible by using a computer, tablet or smartphone. The Agreement applies only to the Site.

The Agreement does not alter your liability or obligations that currently exist between you and your Billers. We do not have control of, or liability for, any products or services that are paid for using our Services. We also do not guarantee the identity of any user of the Service, including but not limited to Authorized Users and Billers.
2.5. Bill Payment Scheduling
You must select the Scheduled Payment Date for any payment. To avoid additional interest and charges, you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is no later than the actual Due Date reflected in the Billing Statement unless the Due Date falls on a non-Business Day. If the actual Due Date falls on a non-Business Day, you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is at least one Business Day prior to the actual Due Date.

We may set a maximum dollar amount for payment and/or refuse to permit any Bill Payment if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for security reasons or to satisfy any applicable legal or regulatory requirement.
2.6. Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance
By providing the Service with your bank, debit or credit account information, you authorize us to follow the Payment Instructions that we receive through the Service’s payment system. When we receive a Payment Instruction, you authorize us to debit your Payment Account and remit funds on your behalf to the Biller so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the Scheduled Payment Date designated by you. You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize us to charge the Payment Account for payments you initiate using the Service and you will indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims by any other owner of the account. You agree to promptly update your Payment Account information of any changes.
We will use reasonable efforts to make your Scheduled Payments properly. We incur a liability and an obligation to complete your transaction when a transaction is either authorized by the bank issuing your credit or debit card, or when a transaction is originated in the Fed system in the case of an ACH payment. This liability is extinguished when funds settle in the account designated by your landlord or other designated recipient.
We will attempt to process your payment as instructed, however, our liability will be reversed if we are unable to complete any Scheduled Payment initiated by you due to a processing failure driven by any one or more of the following circumstances:
- The payment processing center is not operating properly and you know or have been advised by us about the malfunction before you execute the transaction; and/or
- If a Biller that makes available to you split-payment functionality (in which your Bill Payment may be split and allocated in various ways that such Biller may offer) does not split and/or allocate the payment in accordance with your Payment Instruction; and/or
- You have not provided us with the correct Payment Account information, or the correct name, address, phone number, or account information for the Biller; and/or
- Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, failure of communication or other systems or interference from party outside our control) prevent the proper execution of the transaction and we have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.
2.7. Insufficient funds and Credit Card Chargebacks
If after funds have settled with your landlord, PMC, etc., it is later determined that you did not have sufficient funds to make the payments, or the payment is charged back, you agree that we are not responsible for fees or charges associated with any overdraft or insufficient fund situation (including, but not limited to, finance charges, late fees or similar charges). You further agree that we may charge a Return fee of $30 (THIRTY DOLLARS) for any returned payment, including, but not limited to, Returns resulting from overdraft or insufficient funds in your account. We may adjust this Return fee in the sole exercise of our discretion.
2.8. Payment Cancellation Requests
You may cancel or edit any Scheduled Payment (including recurring payments) by following the instructions within the Service. There is no charge for canceling or editing a Scheduled Payment in accordance with these instructions. For same day cancellation requests please contact RealPage Payments Services Customer Support at 1-855-473-7729 by 4:30pm CST M-F. Once we have begun processing any Bill Payment, you cannot cancel or modify the Bill Payment.
2.9. Stop Payment Requests
You may be able to stop payment of any recurring Scheduled Payment by notifying the bank or other financial institution where your Payment Account is located. The Service is neither responsible nor liable for your stop payment request or for the bank or financial institution handling of your stop payment request. However, we will continue to charge your Payment Account for that payment and for other recurring payments until the expiration date you set for the payments or the date you cancel the recurring payments through the Services, whichever occurs sooner. It is your responsibility to stop any recurring payments by accessing the Site. If any charge to your Payment Account is rejected or returned to us because you have instructed your bank or financial institution to stop the recurring payment, we will charge you the Return fee as set forth in the Agreement.
2.10. SMS Text Messages and Notifications
Users of the Service may elect to receive SMS (short message service) text messages relating to the Service.
