While we’re in the spirit of giving, we wanted to shine some light on the other side of our contest, and your chance to help someone in need! Please take a moment to read through the World Vision Gift Catalog and to think about which gifts you would give if you could. Even if you didn’t win this time, there are very moderately priced gifts to give that could help improve somebody’s life. Take a look at just a few of the options below and let us know in the comments which ones you feel are most important or valuable.

Winning our Christmas contest and your chance to help those in need!

Hopefully by now, at least if you follow us on Facebook, you will be aware of our Christmas contest. In case you hadn’t heard, click here now to sign up! We’re giving away $500 to our members, and $500 to causes chosen by our members, and all you have to do is like/share our post on Facebook to enter. We’re really excited about this contest and we’re really happy with the reception it has gotten so far! We want to stress the importance of giving, not only around this time of year, but as often and as much as you can manage! Some of you may be familiar with our relief fund, which is where a lot of leftover funds end up when people close their accounts etc., and which you can donate to at any time by simply contacting us!

With that in mind, we wanted to shine some light on the other side of our contest, and your chance to help someone in need! Please take a moment to read through the World Vision Gift Catalog and to think about which gifts you would give if you could. If you win a cash prize, you will be given the equivalent amount to donate to one of these causes, so choose wisely! And even if you don’t win, there are very moderately priced gifts to give that could help improve somebody’s life. Take a look at just a few of the options below and let us know in the comments which ones you feel are most important or valuable.

Merry Christmas (2016) and Happy New Year!

solidtrust-christmas

Another year comes to a close with the very merry and joyous season of Christmas! This was a big year for us at SolidTrust Pay; we made a lot of progress with our members and added a ton of incredible new features, as well as new payment and withdrawal methods and most exciting of all, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary! We’re excited and optimistic about the future and we  can’t wait to see what the new year brings us all!

However, many people’s favourite time of year, Christmas represents a busy time indeed for us in the online payments and eCommerce industry. While most people bought their gifts for others weeks ago, we still expect a major increase in online transactions after December 25th, since people will still be sending and spending money in the holiday spirit!

With that in mind, our customer support team aims to be available through most of the holidays to answer general questions and provide merchant support. Below we will list off the days that we will be unavailable on both live chat and social media; please note that you may submit a ticket at any time and we will always respond as soon as possible!

  • December 23rd

  • December 24/25 (weekend)
  • December 26th

  • December 27th

  • December 31/January 01 (weekend)
  • January 2nd

We’ll be back in full effect on January 3rd with our feasting regrets and our new year resolutions, but one more thing!

Have you entered into our contest on Facebook for your chance to win $150 this Christmas season? We’re doing a giveaway on Facebook and all you have to do is like, share, and leave your email to enter! We’ll be drawing names on December 28th, and there are 5 chances to win!

Each winner will receive a cash prize, but they will also be given the same amount of cash to donate to a cause that they feel is worthwhile, chosen from the World Vision Catalog. Sign up now for your chance to win, and follow our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute news, as well as weekly insight into the online payment processing & eCommerce industry plus more fun contests like this one!
