As with all providers it is important to read the small print. The Handepay contract is for a minimum of 36 months, though you must give them 12 months notice of cancellation. If you fail to do so the contract will be renewed automatically for a further 24 months and you would be charged a substantial cancellation fee to get out of it.

Next Steps

If you are a small business looking for an easy to implement secure payment processing solution, then Handepay may be your best choice, but make sure you read the small print first. But it always pays to shop around, and you might find better deals for your particular business elsewhere.
