What is SimpleDiscounts?

Our vision at SimpleRent is to bring joy to tenants, and this is why when we designed our system we asked how we can be a big WIN for tenants.

We then asked:

  • What if, we could help a tenant achieve 3x, 5x, or even >10x their bank account direct debit fees in savings?
  • What if tenants could save more than a week's worth of rent every year, especially after fees?
  • What if tenants could do this by shopping at the locations they like to shop at every week and save on groceries, alcohol, petrol, pharmacy and more?

With this challenge, we created the SimpleDiscounts Buying Group, exclusive to SimpleRent tenants and agents. Everyone paying set and forget rent will automatically be registered to SimpleDiscounts and will enjoy shopping savings on anything from Woolworths, BWS, Dan Murphys, Woolworths Caltex Petrol Stations, Big W, Priceline Pharmacy, and more.

SimpleDiscounts simply offers straight up money savings (keeping extra cash in the tenants and property managers’ pockets through discounts). Learn more about SimpleDiscounts here.

How quickly do funds settle?

Funds clear to your trust account in two (2) business days. This means that rent payments will be scheduled only two (2) business days in advance. Funds debited from the tenant’s account after 5PM Monday is settled to your trust account on Wednesday at approximately 2PM. Most Agencies will then reconcile the following morning.

How can you help me if tenants fail to pay?

SimpleRent has pre-built automations that notify tenants via email and SMS when they fail to pay, and reattempt to debit the tenant’s nominated account for the previous failed payment. If the tenant fails to pay before their next direct debit, the failed payment will automatically be reattempted in the next week's direct debit run on the same day the rent is due again. We will then attempt the failed payment and the payment due for the week in two separate payments ensuring a higher likelihood of obtaining one week rent.
