Paper money is wasteful, time consuming, and expensive. Cash transactions are extremely dirty and contain millions of bacteria cells and germs that fuel the common cold and other infections outbreaks. The exchange of cash currency has also been tied to black market crimes and money laundering. Checks are also not exempt from security issues, tied to check fraud and identity theft they are the most antiquated form of payment in exchange today. Checks require tedious steps to write and process and consume a large amount of paper waste.
In addition, paper money (cash & checks) is slow. In this fast paced ecommerce world, why slow down the line waiting for change or filling out and processing paper checks. Today most transactions occur electronically, but why not all of them?
One third of all Americans rent, and unfortunately most still pay their rent with a paper check. At RentPayment, we encourage renters to go green and experience the efficiency of fast, clean and safe digital transactions.
Don’t be paper in a plastic world.
