FAQ.

  • Why should I choose Helcim?

    Transparency, low rates, smart tools and amazing service! Many merchants have been dragged through the mud by their prior processor with hidden fees, contracts, and terrible service. We've built our reputation on being the opposite. We care about building long-term relationships with our merchants - which means offering you the payment service you've been looking for.

    Have more questions? Email or give us a call. Our in-house team of Helcim Merchant Experience Specialists are here to share their knowledge, answer your questions and point you in the right direction. No commissions, no pressure.

  • Are there any contracts or hidden fees?

    No! You can close your account anytime without any penalty and there are no hidden fees. You never again have to worry about setup fees, termination fees, quarterly fees, PCI & non-compliance fees, customer service fees, or bank deposit fees.

  • Who is Helcim for?

    If your business is looking for a better way to accept credit and debit cards online or in-person, then Helcim is the payments company for you. Helcim offers a wide range of payment tools and software solutions to make it faster and easier for you to get paid.

  • How long do funds take to be deposited?

    Deposits will appear in your bank account within 2 business days, depending on the time of day that your transactions are settled. Transactions processed over the weekend or bank holidays are initialized for deposit on the following business day. Your daily transactions are batched together and deposited to your bank account, net of processing fees.

  • Is there a monthly fee?

    No! We want to help small businesses grow and thrive, so there are no monthly fees. Your Helcim account allows you to process both in-person and online payments with great low processing rates. You also get full access to all of our merchant tools and benefit from our amazing customer service team.

  • How long should I wait to get my payment hardware?

    When you order a Helcim card reader or a Helcim Smart terminal, we work hard to ensure it reaches you as quickly as possible. Typically, shipping may take 2 - 3 business days. However, please know that shipping may take up to 5 business days for some businesses for US locations and up to 7 business days for some Canadian locations.

  • How much are the processing rates?

    For Visa, Mastercard, Amex and other card-brands, we offer Interchange Plus pricing to give you complete transparency and greater savings. By passing the base cost directly to you and only charging for a single markup, Interchange Plus pricing gives you significant savings. By knowing our cost as well as our markup, we promote a fully transparent partnership which means no surprises on your monthly statement!

    To calculate your rates for in-person and online transactions, you can visit our pricing page.

  • Do I need to change banks?

    No! You can use your existing bank account, provided by your financial institution or credit union. Sole proprietors can use a personal bank account. Incorporated business and partnerships are required to use a business bank account

    Law firms and other businesses that require separate trust and operating bank accounts are able to customize the flow of deposits and fees to meet their needs.

  • Do you offer volume discounts?

    Yes! And there is no need to call and renegotiate rates. Our Interchange Plus margin automatically decreases the more you process, helping you save even more.

    You can view our complete volume discounts on our pricing page.
