Pay Owner Disbursements

As a property manager, you manage properties on behalf of Owners. Paying those Owners the proceeds from these properties is easy with Rentec Direct's Owner Payment Wizard. 

Set Payment Preference for Each Owner

Before starting to send payments to Owners, you will first need to set payment preferences for each Owner.

In your Rentec Direct account:

  1. Click Owners from the main menu.   
  2. Right-click on the Owner and choose Edit Owner.  
  3. Scroll to the Payment Info section and complete the payment preferences for this owner.

    If you pay this owner by check, you will select either Check or Print Check. Check is the option to use if you handwrite or print your own checks using different software. Print Check is the option to select if you use Rentec Direct to directly print checks from the software

    If you are set up for ACH electronic payment processing, you can automatically ACH the funds to the owner's bank account. To do this, select the ACH Checking option. Then, choose the ACH enabled account that you want the funds to come from in the From Account field

    Information to pay owners electronically (ACH) can be found here: Payment Processing Setup | Enrollment
  4. Next, fill in your owner's bank routing and account numbers (you can find these from a voided check they can supply you).     
  5. Click Save Changes when finished. 

System Note: Do this for each Owner allows you to have a complete history of all disbursements (distributions) you've made to Owners when you pull an Owner Payment Wizard Report. 

Paying Owners (Owner Disbursement) 

Now that the settings are complete, you will be able to use the Pay Owner Wizard tool to quickly pay one or multiple owners at once.

In your Rentec Direct account: 

  1. Click Owners from the main menu.
  2. Click the Pay All Owners button.  
  3. You will now be presented with all owners configured for payments. From here, select the owner(s) you want to pay by clicking on the box to the left of their name.

    This will increase the  Total Payments value on the bottom.

    The default method of payment will already be selected, but you can modify that here.

    You can also modify the total owed for any property by expanding the property list (by clicking the arrow to the left of their name) and modifying the amount due.
  4. Once you have confirmed the amounts and payment methods, you have two options: Save Draft to come back and complete it later, or Submit Payments.  


  • All Print Check and Check payments will post to the applicable Bank ledger within 30 seconds.
  • All outgoing ACH electronic payments will be processed within the following 60 seconds and be transmitted to the owners and entered as such on the Property, Bank ledger, and Owner ledgers. *There is a $0.50 transaction fee for each outgoing ACH payment. 

System AdviceDeleting an ACH transaction does not stop or reverse the payment. If you have inadvertently processed an ACH transaction contact CSG Forte as soon as possible. 

Tip: If you'd rather, you can navigate to selectively pay owners one at a time by right-clicking on an Owner and choose Pay Owner. Additionally, you can pay all owners associated with a specific From bank account by right-clicking on the bank account and choosing Pay Owners there. Both options take you to the Pay Owner Wizard but offer only the owner(s) associated with those choices.
