Today marks an exciting milestone for the Web3 payments space as Helio announces its multi-chain payments platform for dApps, merchants and creators.
Founded with the vision of powering merchant payments for the web3 economy, Helio has now added support for Polygon, with Ethereum support coming soon.
Helio launched on the Solana blockchain last summer and emerged as a top 10 dApp and the leading payments provider with $10M in payments processed across ~30k unique active wallets. Helio already helps 1,000s projects & creators with NFT presales, P2E deposits, e-commerce, subscription payments, paywalling and more. Developers integrate Helio payments into their app using our API while creators spin up pre-built checkout pages in a few clicks.
With Helio, projects can integrate crypto payments in minutes to easily reach a rapidly growing audience of crypto-native consumers who want to pay quickly with just a single tap of their favourite crypto wallet, such as Phantom or MetaMask, rather than use traditional log-ins and card payments. This leads to a faster checkout experience for customers, as well as instant, global payments for merchants. Additionally, Helio merchants can receive payments directly in any token without middlemen and low fees, freeing up critical developer resources.
“We make integrating web3-native payments as easy as setting up a Gmail account”, said Stijn Paumen, Founder & CEO of Helio. “By partnering closely with the Polygon team, we’ve now taken a critical step in this direction by replicating our best-in-class payment experience to Polygon. Think of Helio as your go-to solution for Ethereum, Polygon and Solana payments in a single app. In the same way, merchants don’t have 3 different systems to accept Visa, Mastercard or AMEX payments, we believe web3 needs a single payments platform to access what you need.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Helio to the Polygon ecosystem. Web3 businesses need great payment tools to drive sales and save developer resources they would otherwise spend on building it themselves. It’s exciting to see that merchants can now accept payments using any token on Polygon,” said Hamzah Khan, Head of DeFi at Polygon Labs.
Helio is launching its public beta for Polygon today with Helio Pay Links and the Ethereum beta following over the coming weeks before we’ll unify the full experience later this quarter.
