A better payment solution for small businesses

Accepting payments should be one of the best parts of the job for small business owners, but it’s often another headache due to hidden charges. Helcim is on a mission to become the world’s most loved payment company by providing a better way for businesses in Canada and the U.S. to get paid.

The Calgary-based company provides online and in-person payment tools to businesses across thousands of different industries. With their all-in-one cloud-based platform combined with more affordable Interchange Plus pricing, businesses can take control of their payments and customize their experience to meet their needs.

Helcim is one of only a handful of companies that has built its own payments stack and controls the backend process to its payment service. This allows the company to customize its offering and do things differently from the big banks by putting honesty and transparency first.

Helcim’s in-house team of developers continually enhances and improves upon the platform, and the knowledgeable customer service team provides advice and guidance to business owners. With their built-in payment tools, business owners can get paid faster with online invoicing and a virtual terminal, or easily accept contactless payments at checkout or on the go. They can also get a fully hosted online store or add payments to their current website.

By creating an easier, smarter, and more affordable payment solution, Helcim is enabling more small businesses to get paid and grow, ultimately helping the economy thrive.
