Helcim vs. Square,
Intuit and PayPal

There are number of no-monthly-fee providers offering mobile processing services to small businesses, including Square and PayPal. For micro-merchants processing a small number of transactions periodically, some of these solutions can be ideal for their budget.

With our Cost+ pricing, our solution becomes more cost-effective for merchants processing a steady amount of transactions and looking for more advanced functionality such as multi-user support, multi-device support and an included web-based virtual terminal.

If you process over $1,500 in credit card payments,
it is more cost-effective for your business to be with Helcim!
