As of right now, you or the merchant need to reach out to us to let us know the account will no longer be used. If this is the case, there is no cancellation fees and we will have the account cancelled on the provided date.

Yes! SurChoice will refer to an agent when a merchant-to-merchant referral occurs. The original agent will be the one to receive the referral.
