Suspend Option

US programs have an option where you can suspend the status of your account and reduce the monthly fee for a portion of a given year. This is beneficial for seasonal vacation rental owners.
Unfortunately, CAD programs do not have this option. If CAD merchant were to cancel their account and then re-activate it later, the set up fee would have to be paid again.
