Helcim: The Boost Your Business Needs in 2021

Helcim is a Calgary-based payment processing company that makes accepting payments easier, smarter, and more affordable for businesses across North America.


One Tough Year

Let’s face it, 2020 was a rough year to be in business. Restaurants really felt the pinch as in-house dining turned into curbside pickup; a shift that marked an increased reliance on food delivery services. In many cases, restaurant owners watched their already slim margins creep down even further. Over this last year, the lights went out on hundreds of small businesses that were just getting going, and others who had been working for years to build something meaningful were forced to abandon their dreams.

We saw what was happening and knew there had to be a way for us to make things more manageable and more affordable for businesses that were struggling. Since 2006, Helcim has been on a mission to achieve better for businesses. And in 2020, we revolutionized the way we operated to give business owners even more. Our goal was simple: a more streamlined experience, and more money in your pocket.

Take Control of Your Payments

2021 is a new year, and we want merchants everywhere to know that we’re here to help. There is an alternative to your business paying too much for everything: from terminal leases,  payment processing, to the software that’s essential to your operations. We’re empowering our customers to take back control of their bottom line by offering them a more affordable way to accept payments and giving them all the tools they need to succeed and grow for less than the price of a cup of coffee a day.

We’re talking about tools like integrated inventory management, QR code payments, and online ordering for restaurants that want to cut out third-party apps. For professional services, we offer a virtual terminal that lets you accept credit cards over the phone, and online invoicing where customers can view, click and pay, all in a matter of minutes.

Every Cent Matters

We know there are a lot of payment processors out there and that you’d probably like to think of them as little as possible. You just need to accept credit cards—but you don’t want to get rinsed doing it. That’s why we exist. Helcim isn’t just your payments processor, we’re your payments partner, and we work with you to help build your business.

We’re so sure you’ll love us that right now we’re offering new merchants their first month free (and there’s no sign-up fee, admin fees, or cancellation fees). And, if you're just getting back up and running, don’t worry; if you don’t process a payment next month, or any month after that, our monthly fee is automatically waived. Meaning you don’t pay us unless you’re making money.

Helcim Can Help

At Helcim, we know running a business is a challenge on a good day, which is why we want to make at least one aspect of managing your operations a little easier. We exist to make things better, and we’re constantly improving our offerings for merchants by adding new tools and publishing a host of resources for you to turn to whenever you need them. 

Plus, we have a dedicated team of Helcim Gurus that are available to answer your questions and help solve your problems every step of the way. Start your payments journey with Helcim, and we’re confident you won’t regret it. Sign up here.
