Helio is a complete Web3 payments platform, starting with Solana. We make it easy for merchants, creators & projects to accept and embed single-step crypto payments in their app or workflow.
Our solutions include E-commerce, Subscriptions, Pay Links, Pay Streams, Paywalls, Discord payments, Invoicing, plugins and more 🚀
We're an experienced team of builders. The founders previously built, scaled and exited two B2B SaaS companies for a total of $600m. We've assembled a team of leading Web3 & Fintech engineering, product and marketing talent.
A self-custody crypto wallet that runs as a plug-in in your browser or mobile app. Self-custody means you hold the crypto yourself with a public-private key pair rather than in an online account, akin to holding money in your own safe. You can send money directly & easily to anyone 🌎
We support Phantom, Solflare, Slope, Brave, Coinbase, Glow and other Solana compatible wallets. DM us if you you'd like us to add a wallet that isn't listed yet in the drop down. We're building cross-chain and plan to support ETH wallets such as MetaMask by the end of 2022 🌞
A fast blockchain that’s capable of Visa-scale volume of 65k transactions per second at an average cost of $0.00025. If you're new to Solana please check out our quick start page here 🔥
No, Helio is fully Web3-native and non-custodial. This means you don't need to log-in to a centralised system (like a bank), you receive payments instantly in your Web3 wallet and Helio doesn't hold money on your behalf.

Helio is fully supported by mobile wallets on iOS and Android. Open the wallet's browser and navigate to the Helio dashboard to set up your payment workflows. We also use Phantom and other browser deep-links to auto-open checkout pages in mobile wallets. Here's a video of the mobile UX
Pay Links, Invoices and completed Pay Streams settle directly & instantly to your connected wallet. For live, ongoing Pay Streams, you can withdraw the settled amount (i.e. the time has passed so far) to your wallet in real-time from the Helio dashboard --> Transactions 🎉
