To get started, click on “Property accounts” in the drop-down list then on the “Create Property Account” button. Here, you can fill in your account details, such as Account Name, Description, and VAT Information. Make sure to save.

To make changes to existing account details, simply press the “Edit” button displayed next to it.

Here, you can edit and add information to your liking. Additionally, you can add users to your property account by clicking the “Add” button at the bottom of the window. Just enter your new user’s email address and their role in the property account. Please note that users with “Agent” roles will only have access to adding and editing properties.

Don’t forget to save your changes.

2. How to add, update and delete payment information

To add, update and delete payment information on your property account, navigate to the properties tab in the sidebar. In the drop-down list, click on “Property accounts.”

Click the “Edit” button next to your chosen property account. Here, you can click on the “Add New Payment Information” button to proceed. The platform will redirect you to the JCC Payment gateway, where you can securely fill out your banking details.

Furthermore, if you already have payment information saved on our system, you can use the “Add existing payment information” button. This button allows you to choose payment information from previously uploaded accounts.

If you want to edit your uploaded payment information, go back into the “Edit” window and select the “Update Payment Information” button. This will take you back to the JCC gateway, where you can change your billing details.

Finally, if you wish to delete the payment information from your property account, you can do so from the same “Edit” window.

Please note that payments are taken at the start of each month, depending on each property’s upload date.
