Why do you ACH payments? Champion prides itself on being a green company and we do almost everything paperless. ACH allows you to make easy payments without writing checks and creating PO’s. In the end, this is very easy for the customer and for the environment.
How will I know that an ACH is about to happen? Our bookkeeping department is very personal and hands on. Nothing is automatically done by a computer. You can expect to receive an invoice the Thursday or Friday before your payment will be deducted on the following Tuesday. If for any reason, there is a problem with your invoice, you can easily call us at 1-800-490-1959.
What are merchant fees? Anytime a business, nonprofit or a person accepts a credit/debit card payment they are charged merchant fees. Similarly, when you receive payment from a donor, there is a merchant fee. This merchant fee is not included in your payments to Champion. Currently this fee is 3.5% and is deducted from the payment you receive from our third-party provider.
What are international merchant fees? Anytime a business, nonprofit or a person accepts a credit/debit card payment they are charged merchant fees. Similarly, when you receive payment from a donor, there is a merchant fee. This merchant fee is not included in your payments to Champion. Currently this rate changes from time to time. Please refer to your individual agreement with your third-party provider.
How will I receive the funds raised online? Our third-party vendor will pull reports on the 15th and 30th of each month. It will take approximately 5-7 business days to process the check and then it is mailed to you from California. Please note that is will be an actual check you receive as some organizations accidently mark this as a new donation.

Why do I have to raise $20,000 for my Feed the Need event two weeks before the event? The Feed the Need event is our most popular and most costly event Champion hosts. Because of that, it is very important that you hit your target goal of $20,000 two weeks PRIOR to your day of event. This ensures that food will be shipped to your organization in a timely manner. We will not ship food if you have not reached $20,000 two weeks prior to your event. If this requirement has not been met, you must consult with your Account Manager.
