Our mission is to deliver a better payment experience.

We’re relentless in our pursuit to raise the bar and deliver a service that redefines what a merchant should expect from their payments company. We believe that by creating an easier, smarter, and more affordable payment solution, we can enable more businesses to get paid and grow. And when small businesses thrive, we all succeed.

Mission is to deliver a better payment experience

Building a Better Payment Service.

Everyday, we set out to create a better payment experience for our merchants. That means we have to do things differently from the big banks, including putting honesty and transparency first. You spend less time worrying if you’re paying too much, and more time knowing that we’re here to help anytime you need it.

  1. Payments should be easy

    We believe getting started should be easy, and not require complicated paperwork. We want our merchants to be able to start accepting payments within minutes, and have all the tools they need to set up and grow their business fast.

  2. They should be affordable

    Running a business is expensive, so we want to make sure that accepting credit cards is as affordable as possible. Every Helcim account benefits from low Interchange Plus pricing and volume discounts. We also don't charge extra for our business tools or for additional users.

  3. They should be smarter

    Merchants shouldn't settle for an old-school credit card terminal. Your payment tools should enable you to be as nimble and ambitious as you want to be, and blur the line between in-person and online so that you can create the best experience for your customers.

  4. They should be honest

    Merchants shouldn't have a hostile relationship with their processor. Honesty and transparency should matter in all business relationships, and they certainly matter to us. So when you sign up with Helcim, you can rest easy knowing that we have your back.
