WeZebra, a payment platform that provides installment plans to home renters, has raised a series A funding in the tens of millions (RMB) led by China Renaissance K2 Ventures, followed by installment plan provider Fenqile, and joined by N5 Capital. (Chinese source)

In China, rental installments are typically three to six months at a time. WeZebra found a niche market when they realized there are many students or young white collar workers that struggle to pay the fees upfront. Founded earlier this year, the company provides installment payment for low income individuals who are looking to rent homes. They received a 5 million RMB ($771,000 USD) angel investment this February. 

The service monetizes through a 4% commission fee for three-months rental and a 6% commission fee for six-month rentals. After the advance payment of the first month’s rental with service fee, the tenant can pay monthly.
