Please see open roles here https://join.hel.io/ if you're interested in joining us.

How much does Helio cost?

It's free to get started and we charge a fee per transaction. See our pricing & fees information.

Does Helio custody funds?

No, Helio is a technology provider, not a MSB/VASP or money transmitter. We help merchants & creators accept fully decentralised payments (100% DeFi) using the blockchain. All transactions are direct, peer-to-peer payments from the buyer to the merchant. We never take custody of funds and merchants receive payments instantly in their wallet.

What blockchains does Helio support?

Helio was founded on Solana, which is the best blockchain for payments today. We also support Bitcoin, Ethereum & Polygon and additional chains are in our roadmap.

Is Helio audited?

Yes, we're audited by Ackee blockchain, operated the highest possible security standards and employ a robust KYC/AML program. In addition, we regularly pentest and conduct vulnerability tests on our infrastructure.

What's a crypto wallet?

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 🌎

What digital currencies do you support?

USDC, SOL, ETH, BTC and 100s of other digital currencies. If your token isn't listed in the drop-down please complete this form

What is a HelioX Pass?

"HelioX Pass" is our official NFT which acts as a subscription to HelioX, the pro version of Helio with the lowest fees and best features. Learn more:

Is Helio supported on mobile devices

Helio is fully supported by iOS & Android and also works well with mobile crypto wallets. 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.

How do I go about getting a refund? Can Helio help me with this?

If you would like a refund, please contact the merchant directly. Transactions made with digital currencies on the Helio platform are direct peer-to-peer transfer from the buyer 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.
