Setup and subscription for the RentRedi integration

Setup and subscription for the RentRedi integration

REI Hub, the leading accounting software for real estate investors, and RentRedi the preeminent rent collection and tenant management platform, have partnered together to better serve their mutual customers by integrating their respective services. RentRedi customers can now add REI Hub onto their RentRedi subscription, enabling the custom built integration that will import all payments processed through RentRedi into REI Hub.  This prevents you from having to manage your payment information in both your property management system and your accounting system- saving you serious time. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS ARTICLE:
  1. The integration must be activated from your RentRedi account.  RentRedi manages subscription and billing for all integration customers.
  2. Existing REI Hub subscribers who wish to add the integration must activate the integration through RentRedi, and then contact REI Hub support for assistance in merging portfolios.
  3. Payments are automatically imported from RentRedi and immediately recognized for taxes.  Therefore, all deposits in your linked bank accounts that correspond to these payments should be Matched or Ignored to prevent double-entering your revenue. 

GETTING STARTED AND PORTFOLIO SETUP

To activate the integration between RentRedi and REI Hub, go to your RentRedi account.  Follow the prompts to Add Accounting to your RentRedi subscription.  This is the only way to activate the integration - subscribing to RentRedi and REI Hub independently will not do it.

After you activate the REI Hub accounting add on to your RentRedi subscription, the custom integration will create a new REI Hub portfolio with all of the properties and units existing in your RentRedi account.  The system will import historic RentRedi payment transactions, and create a manual version of your bank accounts (not electronically linked).  

In your new REI Hub portfolio, you will be prompted to create a password and to (optionally) enter Estimated Market Values for your properties.  

The recommended next step is to link your operating bank and credit card accounts to securely import transactions and save manual data entry.

PAYMENTS IMPORTED THROUGH THE INTEGRATION

Payments are imported from RentRedi differently based on how they are processed and recorded in RentRedi.  Click here to learn about payments processed electronically through RentRedi, and here to learn more about payments manually marked as paid in RentRedi

As payments are imported from RentRedi to REI Hub in real time, they are immediately recognized for taxes with the appropriate property, unit, revenue, and expense information.  

Any imported deposits in your linked bank accounts associated with RentRedi payments should be booked as a Transfer Between Accounts.  This prevents double booking your revenues, as that information has already been brought in through the integration.  

SUBSCRIPTION AND BILLING

RentRedi manages subscription and billing for all customers utilizing the integration, as it is only available by adding REI Hub onto your existing RentRedi subscription.  Please contact the RentRedi support team with any questions related to subscription, billing, and payment information.  The REI Hub support team does not have access to this information and cannot process changes on your behalf. 

EXISTING REI HUB SUBSCRIBERS 

Current REI Hub subscribers who wish to take advantage of the integration will need to follow a similar process.  You will need to add accounting onto your RentRedi account, creating a new REI Hub portfolio linked to RentRedi.  Please contact the REI Hub support team for assistance in merging your two portfolios (this must be done manually by the technical team) and to cancel your direct subscription.
