Can A Customer Submit A Payment If They Are In Lien Status? (5)
Still want a little more info? Watch this video as well. Text Collector will not allow payments made past what sitelink settings are. See the attached picture from Corporate Control. “CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS DISABLED AFTER THIS NUMBER OF DAYS”. This picture shows 37 days but whatever you have set inside your corp control from sitelink will determine if a customer can make a payment past a certain number of days. Using the settings shown in the example picture, if a tenant receives a text message and it is past 37 days late, the tenant would only be able to click to call your office. If they attempted to make a payment using Text Collector, they would see a response shown in the attached picture as well saying “TENANT IS TOO MANY DAYS PAST DUE.”
