Make a Contribution
The homeowner can make secure monetary contributions via credit/debit card or eCheck (ACH) to the property of your choice.
Log into your Owner Portal(AppFolio) and click the Transactions tab on the left-side menu of the portal and click Make a Contribution.
Select a property, enter an amount ($15,000 max), select a payment method, and click Continue. Transaction fees apply when paying online. You are notified of the fee amount before you submit the payment.
Enter the bank account or card details and click Continue.
Review your payment information and click Submit.
Note: The contribution and fee will be processed as separate transactions. The base contribution appears on your statement as a transaction from the management company and the fee will appear as a transaction from AppFolio.
You will receive an email notification if your payment was successfully submitted. Print or save the confirmation page or email for your records if necessary.
Fees for Making Owner Contributions
Credit Card: 2.99% of the total amount per transaction (with a minimum fee of $3.50)
Debit Card: $9.99 flat fee per transaction
Appfolio, not Next Brick, determines fees to process payment.
Does the Owner get a confirmation of their contribution payment?
Yes. The Owner receives a confirmation email immediately after they submit their payment. The email includes the payment and fee amount (if applicable), a confirmation number, and what the payment will show on their bank statement, so they know what to look out for.
How much can an owner contribute?
Owners can pay up to $15,000 per contribution.
Can the Owner see a history of their contributions in their Owner Portal?
Yes. Owners can see a history of their contributions and disbursements on the Transactions tab of the Owner Portal.
