Processing Terminals

What is a terminal?

A terminal is what communicates credit card transaction data between the Helcim system and the card networks and issuing banks. It holds certain settings such as the processor network, currencies, settlement times and other card processing configurations.

All transactions processed through the Helcim system will eventually go through the merchants processing terminal regardless of where that transaction originated.

Where can I find my terminal information?

Login to your Helcim account, and under the All Tools menu, select Payments, and click on Terminals. You will see a list of all the terminals available and their currency.

The Helcim API will process on the default terminal for your account.


By clicking on a specific terminal, you will be able to view its unique ID.
