Student accommodation provider, Host, strive to provide students across the UK with ‘hassle-free student living’. By offering all-inclusive accommodation with the benefits of being located close to city centres and university campuses – as well as having on-site management teams, security staff and CCTV, students can make the most of being a student and enjoy a stress-free experience at university.
Students don’t need to worry about paying utility bills, internet and insurance – all of that is included. All students need to do is pay their rent and Host take care of the rest. And when the time comes to pay their rent and make payments, things just got even easier…
Host have recently installed new card payment processing terminals from CheaperPay at several of their sites. This means students can simply pop down to the accommodation receptions where they can make rent payments easily, conveniently and securely using their cards through the new terminals.
Cards are fast becoming the most popular way to make payments in the UK, with the use of other forms of payment such as cash and cheque ever decreasing. And there are no surprises to hear that debit card holding and usage is far more popular with younger people than older.
But it’s not just rent payments that can be made using the new CheaperPay terminals. Students are able to pay for everyday purchases such as replacement key fobs and office services (e.g. printing), using their cards. And for payments under £30, students are able to pay via contactless payments – making it even easier and quicker!
And in the digital world that we live in today, some people actually prefer to make payments online, so, we take care of that too. Residents at Host simply log into their online Host account via the StarRez Portal and with just a few clicks of a button rent payments can be made.
But students aren’t the only ones who are enjoying a ‘hassle-free’ payment experience. From a business perspective, Host are now benefiting from fast and secure payment processing for all of the transactions made both onsite and online. And with a simple setup, each site was up and running with the new system in no time at all.
Of course, should the teams stumble across any problems or have any questions while using CheaperPay, our UK based office means help is only a quick call away!
