Azibo is an all-in-one financial services platform built for independent landlords. Our solutions for rent collection, financial management, accounting, insurance, tenant screening and more help you save time, stay organized, and grow your rental business. With Azibo, landlords can receive online rent payments, find new tenants, and manage all of their property bank accounts in one platform — for free.
Yes, Azibo really is free for landlords. Unlike traditional banks and technology platforms that charge steep fees, Azibo makes money in other ways in order to provide our tools at no cost to landlords. Learn more about the Azibo business model here.
To create an account with Azibo, visit the Azibo homepage and click “Get started” or “Sign up.”
That takes you to the Azibo signup page, where you can select “Landlord” and complete the form with your name, phone number, email address, and password.
Be sure to include a phone number where you are able to receive text messages, as this will be necessary to verify your account.
Once you create your account, we’ll verify your phone number by sending you a verification code. After you verify your phone number, you’ll be redirected to sign in to your new Azibo account.
Once you sign in, we’ll ask how many properties you own to provide a more customized onboarding experience.
Next, you’ll see a page featuring all of the Azibo services available to landlords. Select all that apply to you. Don’t worry — all these features will be available to you later, too. You can set up additional services from your Azibo dashboard at any time.
Once you choose “Automate rent,” you’ll be directed to a new page with the three steps required to set up online rent collection. First, click “Add property” to add your rental property to Azibo.
Next, select what type of property you want to add.
From there, you will be asked to enter your rental property’s address.
Next, add the rest of the details about your property. Choose a property type from the dropdown list, enter the number of units, and share the apartment, suite, or unit number, if applicable.
You can then assign the property to an existing portfolio or create a new one. As an Azibo user, you can create multiple portfolios if you’d like to assign different property types to different groups.
Once you select “continue,” your information will be saved.
You can add additional properties from the Properties page on your Azibo dashboard at any time.
Now it’s time to add the payment terms you will use for your rental property and invite tenants.
First, you’ll be prompted to select the property and unit you’re linking your bank account to.
Next, enter all relevant payment terms, including your lease’s start and end dates, rent amount, rent due date, and any recurring fees (pet fees, late fees, etc.) or one-time payments (security deposit, prorated rent, etc.).
Then add tenants to the correct units, including their full name, contact information, email address, and phone number.
Next, preview your tenant’s invitation to confirm all information is correct and hit send.
Once you’ve sent the tenant invite through Azibo, you can follow up with your tenant using their custom Azibo signup link. Note that the custom link will only work for that specific unit — you cannot send the same invite link to all of your tenants.
Once you hit continue, your payment terms and tenants will be saved.
Next, link the bank account you’re going to use for your rental property.
To securely link your existing bank to your Azibo account, first answer a few questions about how you use this bank account for your rental business.
Next, fill in your personal information, including your full name, birthday, last four digits of your Social Security number, and primary address.
Then, go through the guided setup process to link your bank account. We partner with Plaid — the secure payments platform used by companies like Amazon, DocuSign, and Lyft — to protect your information.
Through Plaid, you’ll be able to choose your bank and enter your bank credentials to securely link the account. Rest assured that this information will never be shared or sold.
Last but not least, make sure you provide a government-issued photo ID to verify your identity. This ensures you get paid your rental income.
You’ve successfully set up your Azibo account and can now start collecting rent online. You can also check your Azibo dashboard to track rent payment status, better understand your financial performance, and tag expenses to simplify tax prep.
