PayPal: Baselane allows you to connect both existing bank and credit card accounts through Plaid. PayPal is a listed banking institution on Plaid, simply search for PayPal and enter your login credentials to link your account to Baselane. You will be able to collect rent and also import your transactions.
Zelle: Zelle is an easy way to send and receive money into your existing bank accounts. Zelle is built directly into most banking institutions. Simply link your existing banking institution to Baselane, and all Zelle transactions associated with that account can be imported into Baselane.
Venmo: Venmo is not a recognized banking institution by Plaid, and thus we will not be able to connect to your Venmo account.
While PayPal, Zelle, and Venmo are easy-to-use peer-to-peer (P2P) payment solutions, they are not built for rent collection. Instead, we recommend you use Baselane to collect rent. There are multiple benefits to collecting rent with Baselane for Landlords and Tenants:
Stay informed and organized with records of all payments, invoices, and lease details.
Tenant ability to enable Auto Pay, add automated late fees, and receive notifications. Never get paid late again.
Flexibility for tenants to pay with ACH, Debit, or Credit Card.
Dedicated tenant platform to manage rent from any device.
