Bottom line: WilliamPaid is a bill-payment service for renters with important benefits for college students. Two key benefits include reporting of rent payments to build one's credit score and cash-back rewards from online shopping and referrals that can be applied to a college student's loan along with an extra 10% from WilliamPaid when applied to pay down the loan. Cash-back dollars can also be rewarded directly to the user.
