When your new business first launches, each sale is a celebration. You are working hard every day to get your business off the ground, and it can be hard to imagine what your future growth might look like. Helcim wants to encourage you to dream big and to empower your business by selecting a payment processor who will be able to grow with you throughout your entire journey.
Low Transaction Fees that also Reward Your Business for Processing More
When you're just starting out, it can be tempting to go with a flat rate credit card processor to keep your monthly costs down during the early days of your business, when sales volumes are smaller. However, it does not take long for a new business to outgrow the benefits of a flat rate payment processor. Once your business is consistently processing a few thousand dollars a month, then it can be more cost effective to go with a payment processor who offers Cost+ Pricing, such as Helcim.
The benefit of choosing a payment processor who offers Cost+ Pricing is that as the volume of payments your business is processing increases, your average transaction rate will decrease because Helcim passes volume savings on to our merchants. Merchants who are processing payments for registered charities or have implemented recurring subscription plans can qualify for lower transaction fees, resulting in even more savings for their business.
Finally, Helcim has a rate guarantee, so although we can’t guarantee the Visa and MasterCard Interchange rates, we do guarantee that our Cost+ (%) margin will never increase for the life of your account with us.
Diverse and Cost-Effective Terminal Options
In the early stages of your business, you might only need to use a mobile card reader to accept payments from pop up shops or in your home. However, as your business grows you may need to add additional hardware options to accept payments in more locations and from more people.
Helcim offers a variety of payment terminals to meet all your business needs. You can choose between renting your equipment for a low monthly fee or purchasing it outright for a low, one-time amount.
If you need to accept payments on your computer, then Helcim has a virtual terminal that will allow you to log in from anywhere and easily process credit card transactions in real time.
Friendly Customer Service that is There to Support You Throughout Your Journey
