1. If I go out of business will I still have to pay?
You will have the following obligations:
• Contact Canmor advising that you are closing your business. You will be sent a Close Account form that you will sign and return to Canmor.

Canmor’s rates and fees are very competitive; it will be difficult for you to find a better priced service providing a similar high quality of service. However, if you do choose to make a change, you can do so. You are obligated to take the same steps as outlined in 1. above.
3. I need Visa and Mastercard, Do I need to Provide Financial Statements?
Most merchants do not need to provide financial statements. Visa and Mastercard are not automatically provided to merchants; you have to apply for both and be approved. You and your company will be assessed for risk and if the risk is acceptable you will be approved. In some cases, financial statements may be requested to assist in evaluating the level of risk. The level of risk is determined by many factors, they include:
1. Your credit rating
2. Your businesses past bill payment history
3. Type of business
4. Size of your transactions ($2,000 sale has a higher risk than a $10 sale)
5. Dollar Volume of your total sale. (Large volume has a great risk if the business fails)
