Our story

Helio is a complete Web3 payments platform, starting with Solana. We make it easy for merchants and creators to integrate crypto payments into their apps or workflow. Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of Web3 payments & drive the cost of online payments towards zero.

Why it matters:

1️⃣ In the US alone, merchants hand over $138B in tx fees each year

2️⃣ Web3 projects waste valuable time building their own payment tools

3️⃣ 1st-gen crypto pay gateways are weak products. We need an alternative optimised for Web3

*Helio offers a solution that’s cheaper (as low as 0%), faster & delivers a better UX than any other payments platform. *👇

⚡️E-commerce: integrate crypto payments into your website or store within minutes. Increase checkout conversion and reduce fees

⚡️Web3 payments API: build custom apps powered by Helio payments

⚡️Pay Links: create checkout experiences with ease and enable a broad range of payment workflows (e.g. NFT sales, donations, Discord payments, invoicing, x-border payments, etc.)

⚡️Pay Streams: enable flexible subscriptions for SaaS and paywalls for digital content

Our platform was launched in the summer of 2022 and is battle-tested by 1,000s of projects & users, including Solana, Famous Fox Federation, Toys R Us, InBev, Holaplex, etc. We have over 20k active user and process millions in monthly transaction volume.

And you don't need to be a developer to get started with Helio. Simply connect your Solana wallet at https://hel.io/ to set up your first payment using our no-code checkouts. If you're a developer, embed Helio pro-code into your website or app using our API & libraries.
