Helcim, a payments company that lets businesses accept credit cards with ease, has announced launching QR Codes functionality for merchants using their online store, online food ordering, and hosted payment pages.

With more customers looking for contactless payment options, QR codes are an easy way to remove touchpoints from the customer experience. Using QR codes replaces the need to deliver physical menus, pass payment cards back and forth, and share hardware with customers.

To create the QR code, users can simply login to their account and generate the code for the desired landing page. Once created, users can print and display the code anywhere to interact with customers. Customers can initialize and complete the payment using their smartphone and can track their orders from within Helcim account. The ability to create QR codes is automatically included with every Helcim account for no additional fee.

If a business has set up a payment page, then it can easily integrate QR codes as another way to direct customers to the page. Some common uses of payment pages are:

  • To accept tips and gratuities without having to collect cash
  • For donations to charities and nonprofits
  • For fast rental payments for everything from ski’s, kayaks, paddleboards, scooters, and more
  • To quickly pay for parking or transit passes
  • To collect drop-in fees at public events or facilities
  • As a replacement for services that usually accept cash payments

Using QR codes provides flexibility to different types of restaurants by:

  • Removing the need for menus and letting customers pay on their own
  • Making takeout orders easy by displaying the QR code on front window or door, customers can order and pay without having to come into the business
  • Making food truck and mobile pop-up orders easy, customers can pull up menu and order on their own

Founded in 2006, Alberta-based Helcim provides Canadian & American businesses with an opportunity to accept credit card payments at affordable & transparent rates. A wide range of online, eCommerce, cloud-based, mobile & retail payment platforms allows Helcim to offer a total payments solution.
