Pricing options & fees

Set prices in a fiat or cryptocurrency and let users pay in any token
When setting up payments in the Helio dashboard, Merchants can choose a default currency, fix the price in a different currency (typically a fiat or stablecoin for risk-free payments) and let users pay with their currency of choice during checkout with token-swaps.
Let's illustrate the options with an example:
Pricing options in the Helio dashboard
  • Currency: this is the currency the merchant receives, in this case USDC
  • Allow token swaps: the merchant enables this option to allow customers to pay in any supported currency. A currency swap happens at the checkout so that the merchant will always receive their default currency
  • Fix price in a different currency: the merchant can set the price in a different currency including fiat currencies. In this example, the item is priced at €10, which is converted in real-time to 10.612 USDC at the checkout. The price conversion refreshes every 2 minutes
Fixed price of €10 is automatically converted at the checkout to 10.612 USDC
