Don’t Swipe – Scan it!
Flint Mobile Inc. gave a simpler way for retailers and on-the-go-businesses to accept credit card payments when they’re out in the field. The company brought in its new iPhone application that allows companies to accept payments by scanning credit card numbers. This application does not require any additional accessories such as swipers.
Flint is designed for people who work outside of traditional retail stores and need an easy way to accept credit cards. Small businesses, which are service-oriented for the most part, have utterly different needs to rationally manage their business on-the-go. Flint is the only mobile app created specifically to serve this audience.
The application is available for free download in the Apple App Store. Users do not need any additional hardware to start using the app. They can activate their account in minutes through the app itself or at flint.com and immediately start using it.
Flint is totally secure: the creators took care of consumer privacy and security. When a credit card is processed through the app, no card image or data is stored on the phone.
Flint mobile app also allows users to personalize receipts with their own messaging, send simple loyalty offers, configure their own items menu, enable sales tax and tipping, and view transaction details. Users can view and manage transactions, customer contact info, social media activity, and their profile via Flint’s web portal.
The app has recently been available to Flint’s beta users, but now a broader audience has access to it. Flint can be downloaded for free in the U.S. App Store. The app is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5; and iOS 5.0 or above.
Flint supports U.S. based Visa and MasterCard branded card transactions. The fee for usage is 2.95 percent + $0.20 per transaction for credit cards, and 1.95 percent + $0.20 per transaction for debit cards.
