How do I renew online?
Dues can be submitted securely online through your Member Hub portal, which you can access from the MLS Dashboard or through the Member Account tab on our website at rarealtors.com. Current balances will show on your landing page with a Pay Now shortcut where you can select the invoice, then choose Payment Options. You will immediately receive a receipt once payment is successful.
Can I make partial payments with multiple types of payment?
Online payments cannot be split over multiple payment sources. You can submit payment in full online with a debit/credit card. Payments made by check or money order can be sent to the Association office. If you have any questions about payments, please contact us at (804) 422-5000.
Why do I have a balance? Don’t you have my credit card on file?
To ensure that you have an active credit card on file, check your credit card information in your member account. If your member account shows a balance, either your card on file has failed to process, or the card on file has not been selected to automatically pay this type of invoice.
How can I update my card to have these dues automatically withdrawn?
To set up auto-pay, log into your Member Account to update or add payment information. When logged in, select My Billing Info on the left side menu of the main menu page. Once there, Autopay & Billing to add a payment profile. Scroll to the bottom on the next page to select Autopayment Choices.
You must select “Manage Autopay” and attach your saved card to the appropriate membership billing.
Can I pay for my spouse or a teammate’s dues?
Yes, we can process a one-time payment over the phone for someone else. Alternatively, you can add your card information to your teammate’s member account portal for auto draft. (See the preceding FAQ for detailed instructions).
