On a mission to be the world’s most loved payments company, simplicity and affordability remain paramount to Calgary-born Helcim.
To that end, Helcim now offers ACH bank transfers through its app integration with global small business platform, Xero.
Building on Helcim’s existing partnership with Xero, the latest update effortlessly replaces the need for traditional payment methods like checks and wire transfers, which are often time-consuming and less favorable among consumers.
By making ACH payments available through their Xero integration, Helcim has made it even easier for small businesses to offer a streamlined payments solution to their customers and clients. Customers can now easily switch between credit card and ACH payments without the need to sign into their online banking platform.
“When it comes to accounting, we understand that time is money,” shares Helcim Product Manager Mike Quick.
“That is why we wanted our integration with Xero to be as flexible and frictionless as possible for small businesses. Not only have we come out with something that competitors don’t offer through one app, but we have continued to streamline the reconciliation process and mark ACH or credit card payments received through Helcim’s Xero app as paid and reconciled through a single clearing account.”
With a low rate of only 0.5% + 25 cents, capped at $6, businesses of all sizes can now experience significant reductions in expenses. This new offering particularly benefits businesses handling high transaction volumes, aligning with Helcim’s core values of transparency and affordability.
