How does PendoPay work?
In order to deposit funds into your account, bank account information needs to be inputted into Pendo. Your Property Management Company will send an invitation via email for you to set up your banking information directly into PendoPay. The banking details you provide are not passed along to your landlord as you have entered them. Only redacted (partial) bank account numbers are displayed in the Pendo account under your owner information.
I didn’t get the invitation to PendoPay, what do I do?
Please check your junk folder. The email will be coming from firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does PendoPay transfer funds?
Pendo uses Bank of Montreal as our payment processor. Once the set up is complete in PendoPay for all parties, our system will process the rental transaction. The transactions are approved through our system and the tenants bank receives an encrypted file stating that the funds can be withdrawn from the tenants bank account.
The funds are then processed (up to two days) and sent to a Pendo trust account. Once the funds are successfully deposited, our system sends out another encrypted file to our bank to have the funds withdrawn and transferred directly into the Property Management Company’s bank account (for their management fee) and if not applicable, directly to your your bank account. You will see a line item on your bank statement from TRIBE PROPERTY TECH – PENDOPAY for the deposit.
I am switching banks. How do I update my information?
Please contact your Property Management Company with the new bank account information and they can send you a mew link via email for you to update your bank account details in our system.
What type of security does Pendo use to protect the transferring of funds?
Pendo uses bank grade encryption and has insurance to cover fraudulent transactions.
