    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 that offers interchange plus pricing.

    The benefit of choosing a payment processor that 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.

    Cost-Effective Terminal Options

    Helcim offers the Helcim Credit Card Reader to meet all your business needs. You can purchase 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

    There is nothing more frustrating than needing help with something or having an urgent question and not being able to find an answer. In addition to providing in-depth online resources on our blog, we have a friendly, in-house customer service team that is knowledgeable about Helcim's products as well as the payment processing industry at large and is committed to helping your business grow. You can contact Helcim's Customer Service team by phone, email, or on social media and rest assured that we will be in touch within 24 hours and work hard to find the solution to your problem as quickly as possible. Providing excellent customer service is very important to us, so you can rest assured that your business is in good hands if you run into any issues.

    Supportive Software So You Can Do More

    In addition to offering competitive payment processing rates and a wide range of terminals, Helcim also offers an all-in-one merchant platform that provides the tools your business needs to grow.
