Peek into the startup world with Code Story, a podcast featuring in-depth interviews with founders, CTOs and decision makers in the tech industry as they discuss the products they’ve created and the roads they’ve traveled.
This episode of the Code Story podcast is a conversation with Blake Miller, Founder of Homebase, a property management platform enabling the “future of living.” Homebase allows users to pay rent and living expenses online while also having the ability to connect their ‘smart’ devices with a variety of ‘Internet of Things’ devices. Miller discusses turning this concept into a business and effectively communicating this message to property managers and builders.
Adding ACH Payments to a Smarter Living Experience
A digital payment experience was necessary when offering the “future of living,”
After partnering with Dwolla, Homebase allowed tenants and property managers to add and verify an existing bank account to send and collect payments. More than 85% of Homebase users are choosing to pay through the ACH Network instead of with a credit card, saving renters between $15 and $45 a month on fees.
This case study explains their search for an ACH payment provider and eventual integration with Dwolla.
