CALGARY, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - Helcim Inc., a Calgary-based credit & debit card processor, is proud to announce the Calgary Chamber of Commerce selected it as its preferred payment processor. Chamber members will enjoy discounted processing rates, allowing them to reduce their card acceptance costs.

"We are honoured to have been selected by the Chamber, especially considering its long history of small business advocacy.
