There are services out there would report your rental payments to Credit Bureaus, for a fee of course, even some property management start doing it for extra monthly fees as well. Up to maybe early 2015? The Credit Bureaus won't take rental payments as part of their credit file. Unless you don't have any other options to better your credit? To pay a service fee to reporting it, isn't all that necessary nor helpful.

You cannot do that. Typical consumers cannot add accounts to their credit reports.

Rent has nothing to do with credit, as is explained in the articles here.
