About Flint Mobile Payment Services

Flint is the mobile payments company that is creating the easiest way for on-the-go businesses to accept credit cards and to find new customers through social marketing. The company’s first product is an iPhone app that enables merchants to process credit card payments easily and securely using only their phone – without any additional hardware. Founded in 2011 and headquartered in Redwood City, California, Flint is backed by top-tier venture capital firms Storm Ventures and True Ventures.

The Flint team has a track record of successful web, mobile, communications, and payments products with companies like Adobe, Amazon, Atimi, Electronic Ink, iPix, HP, Linden Labs, Netflix, Openwave, Polaris, Polaroid, Polycom, Ribbit, Silicon Graphics, Salesforce.com, Visa, and Worldpay.

All you need is the Flint Mobile app to accept credit cards – no extra hardware. Just scan the main numbers of the card and enter card verification information to ensure a secure transaction. Flint instantly sends an authorization request through their PCI compliant payment gateway partner. No card data or images are stored on the phone and your customer’s privacy is protected. You can easily customize transactions by creating a pre-set item list, adding sales tax, enabling tipping, or including a loyalty offer in the receipt.
