  • Humans that care! Instant, HUMAN response. It was refreshing to get a well written, non-patronizing, caring email that wasn't A.I. generated. We switched to Helcim at the beginning of 2023 and we look smarter, work smarter and perform better.

FAQ.

  • How do I qualify?

    Switch to Helcim and qualify for our Contract Buyback program. To redeem this, in your Helcim account, go to Help > Talk to Us > Submit a Ticket, and upload your previous contract showing the cancellation fee. We’ll credit your Helcim account up to $500.

  • How does it work?

    As you start processing with Helcim, all of your processing fees will be waived until the free processing credit amount on your account is spent. Afterwards, you get to enjoy Helcim’s low payment rates.

  • What if my cancellation fee is more than $500?

    As part of this program, we will reimburse you up to $500 in free processing credits. Although any cancellation fee over this amount cannot be converted by Helcim, we hope that the $500 in addition to our low processing fees will help reduce your overall payment processing costs.

  • Can I argue with my existing provider to not charge the cancellation fee?

    Absolutely! Many merchants are able to get their cancellation fee waived by contesting their poor service quality experience or the increasing fees. For Canadian merchants, we recommend reading this article on the Code of Conduct, which significantly restricts most processors from charging cancellation fees.

  • Can Helcim help me with cancellation paperwork and the migration process?

    Some providers require their merchants to fill out cumbersome forms and paperwork in order to cancel their contracts. Helcim is here to help! Our Merchant Success group can help guide you through any paperwork required to cancel your existing contract as well as migrate your data over.
