Who doesn’t want to save money? When it comes to processing all those credit card payments, a startup called Helcim is helping merchants across Canada and the United States save big-time, allowing businesses to pass on lower prices to the consumer. Helcim Founder and CEO Nicolas Beique spoke to RewardExpert about the advantages of using his company, which now processes over $2.5 billion in payments each year. “We dedicated ourselves to providing affordable pricing and educating small business owners, so they could avoid the common pitfalls that were now obvious to us but may not be to a business owner,” he said.
Worldpay Is Changing the Way the World Does Business
For more than four decades, Worldpay has brought progress to the payments processing industry with their payments technology. Formed in 1971 as part of Fifth Third Bank, the company was innovative when it developed and implemented the first shared online ATM network in the U.S. In January of 2018, the #1 merchant acquirers in the U.S. and U.K. (Vantiv and Worldpay Group, respectively), merged to form the new Worldpay, Inc., becoming the largest processor of credit and debit card transactions in the world.
