No, Helio is a decentralised solution and our technology simply allows merchants to accept payments via a blockchain. All transactions are direct, peer-to-peer payments from the buyer to the merchant. We never take custody of buyer funds and merchants receive blockchain payments instantly in their wallet.
1) Simply connect your crypto wallet at Hel.io to access the dashboard. Create payments, set-up integrations, access reports & more.
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 🌎
Helio is a multi-chain platform and we plan to support any meaningful blockchain over time. We support Solana, Polygon and Ethereum. Other chains including Bitcoin, BNB, Arbitrum are in our roadmap.

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 MetaMask deep-links to auto-open checkout pages in mobile wallets.
If you would like a refund, please contact the merchant directly. Transactions made with cryptocurrency on the Helio platform are direct peer-to-peer transfer from the customer to the merchant. Please note that once payment is sent, there's no way for Helio to reverse the transaction or reclaim funds on your behalf. As a result, we are unable to resolve any payment disputes as the transactions are secured by the blockchain and irreversible.
