Why Are Homeowners Charged a Fee to Make an Online Payment to their HOA and Condo And Is there a Way Around It?  Many management companies charge a $1 or $2 fee each time a homeowner makes an online payment.  This fee charged by payment processing companies, and marked up by management or software companies, ensures the secure and efficient management of electronic checks also referred by some as ACH payments.

Encouraging Electronic Payments

One significant way we support cost efficiency is by covering the cost of eCheck transaction processing. At Community Financials, we believe in encouraging electronic payments over traditional methods like paper checks, which involve additional handling and potential delays.

Some management and accounting companies view e-checks as a profit center, imposing fees that deter electronic payment adoption. However, at Community Financials, along with our banking partner, absorb these costs to facilitate electronic payments, enhancing convenience and reliability for homeowners and associations alike.

Our decision to look for a way to cover these transaction costs underscores our commitment to reducing barriers to electronic payments. By facilitating quicker fund settlement and simplifying payment processes, we aim to encourage recurring payments, minimize missed payments, and enhance financial stability for associations.

At Community Financials, our mission is centered on simplicity, transparency, and efficiency in managing HOA or condo fees. We understand that streamlined payment processes are crucial for homeowners and associations alike, which is why we offer comprehensive solutions tailored to meet diverse needs.
