    $\begingroup$ You've clued the prefix, infix, and suffix, but what about a clue for the whole word? The best riddles have self-confirming answers, i.e. when you find the right word, everything fits together and matches neatly. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Oct 10 '18 at 13:55

Here is my take on this

Internet

My prefix is whole

Integer (Int) is a whole number

My infix has something to do with money

TER (Total Expense Ratio) is a financial indicator used in measuring fund performance

It comes as a %

It is a percentage indicator of Total Fund Costs/Total Fund Assets, typically well below 100% before it goes bust :p

My suffix can help many people

Nets are a means of living for fishermen

But it can also be fun

Some people fish for leisure with a net. Or as per TS. a net is often used in ball games.

And you are all here right now!

Well the Internet is the _net_work via which we got on this site

Lets see if this works for this riddle

  • $\begingroup$ Indeed, it is the correct answer. Can you answer some extra parts like line 4 and also the hint :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Oct 11 '18 at 5:36
  • $\begingroup$ Opps, didnt notice the additional lines. Must have left the browser on too long prior to answering :p $\endgroup$ – Kryesec Oct 11 '18 at 5:59
  • $\begingroup$ It's OK. Well, I'll accept your answer tomorrow :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Oct 11 '18 at 6:01
  • $\begingroup$ BTW, what I meant about the suffix being fun is that it can be used in a basketball game as a net $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Oct 11 '18 at 8:04

Well of course, you're

stackexchange.com

My prefix is whole

stack can refer to an entire collection of objects (esp. in programming)

My infix has something to do with money

Exchange as in stock exchange

My suffix can help many people

com stands for company which helps people through either the company you keep or by selling goods

But it can also be fun

this site is pretty fun (this one especially). Plus it fits the title "You're Here Right Now!"
