    It's very convenient not too have those silly dongles! The fees are much, much cheaper than Elavon too. A few glitches here and there and I really don't like that there is no call in support but overall really like the app. We've had it for about 10 months now. Full Review

    Goldsmith. Custom design studio. I have been in business for over 35 years and used many merchant processing companies. All of them had a multitude of discount fees and monthly statement fees. Flint is a simple, straight forward flat rate. The entire Flint experience has been a fast, easy to use system. One feature I wanted with any company I do business with is to be able to talk to an actual person if a problem needed to be resolved. I've had very few reasons to contact support. Full Review

    No attachment, no problem! Even the EMV chip won't prevent a transaction from being charged successfully so I don't have to buy, carry, charge or lose an expensive reader to make a sale! I love that Flint takes care of invoicing, too and even reminds the customers who have forgotten to pay! I've deleted all other payment apps because I have found the superior one! The ONLY problem I am running into on my Android device is that Flint stops unexpectedly when edting the custom invoice appearance. Full Review

    It used to be good....... It was great for awhile. I used it for my business. But now they're going through some changes and now it doesn't work. It keeps dating that my account had been suspended. Doesn't even give me a reason. Until they get things up and running I'm just going to rate them a 1 star. Full Review

    I am so so so sad that Flint has tanked. So highly reviewed and novel in its approach of using the camera on the phone and no external equipment. Loved this app, the rates and ease of use, but can no longer justify using it since they gave no warning to suspending card transactions with no indication of when (or if?) they would be up and running again. Ugh. I am now Square. Full Review

    Garbage Opened an account over a week ago and has never worked. Customer service phone number connects you to a robot that tells you to go to website and then hangs up on you. Website sends you in circles. No response from customer service emails for days. No clear way of cancelling account. I can't believe how much time this has wasted for me and my business and now having to contact clients to try and get checks from them instead. Full Review

    So upset Still waiting on them to deposit over $500 in payments to my account. Some orders are 3 weeks old. They emailed me and said it would be two days. Its been two weeks. Now they aren't responding at all. I still have to give my clients their merchandise because they were charged. I'm losing money. I feel scammed...I'm so upset!! Full Review

    Too many problems Tried to establish an account. System is "unable to verify my identity" and cannot validate my account information. Oh yeah, 2 connection errors when I tried to establish. Too many other options out there to have such a difficult time setting up an account. Full Review

    Eric Haley Published date: January 14, 2016

    Loved but now no good Used it for quite a while to receive payments every now and then with my business. Worked great (best out there actually) for almost any amount of payment. Then one day just a few weeks ago I tried to receive a $356 payment and it said there was now a 250 transaction limit. Tried to resolve and they closed my account. No phone support. Just a terse email saying that I wasn't worthy based on my credit score. Full Review

    DON'T USE! BEWARE! Worst app. Poor customer service. Enter all my personal information. Go to charge a client and I'm told she cannot make payment. Ask customer service and they say I CAN'T use the service for my business. I'm a caterer. Now they have all my info, I cant use the service, and they wont tell me why. DON'T USE! SAFETY HAZARD!

    Same problem as everyone else It worked for a year + then stopped. As a hairstylist it's unprofessional and embarrassing to have to make clients run to the ATM to get cash to pay because a credit card app just stopped. No customer service or anything. Then an email comes saying they are combining with another company-Stripe-and charging even MORE money than Square is. Of course I've already switched by then because I run a business and deserve to get paid for it. Unlike these people. Full Review

    Thieves I used this app for a couple of weeks. Then they locked my account saying they needed more info on my business. I have it to them but still locked out. Worse, $250 dollars in transactions has disappeared. With neither I nor my client getting the money that was said to have been refunded. They also ignore phone call appointments. I made 2 different appts and they never called. I will be pursuing criminal charges against Flint. Full Review

    When it works, it's great. When it doesn't it's a nightmare. When Flint first came out it was quick, easy, reliable and cheap. Since partnering with Stripe it periodically doesn't work and customer service for each company just continually refers to the other. I now pay higher fees yet have an issue with it at least once a week. Full Review

    Went down the toilet Used to be great. Had multiple declines this week. Looked the fool in front of a client. No response from email support. Can no longer call. Ridiculous that they made changes in app and fees and didn't tell their users. Full Review

    Published date: July 27, 2017

    Absolute garbage. Zero customer service. Literally zero. You can only email & their responses take a week. Soo... This app flagged as fraud on our customer's bank transactions, then this app froze our account & $5,000 worth of transactions for a month before they refunded ALL transactions back to ALL our customers. We had to track our customers down & process payments through a new system one at a time. Absolutely humiliating. We went through Wells Fargo & got a Clover Flex. Much happier now. Full Review

    Well, I signed up a couple of years ago - loved the ability to speak to a human for support issues. Had no troubles with monies being deposited timely and the app worked great on my android, until . . . after a 9 month hiatus from sales due to family issues, I finally am back in the game and for my first sale my customer produced her credit card. No problem I assured her and proceeded with Flint to process the sale. Upon customer "signing" with her finger (and the screen stating her card had been accepted, when done) the next screen up says "Transaction Denied, contact customer support". Whaaaat? When I try to call, their phone number is "no longer in service". Whaaaat? So I log in to my account on my computer and see all the most recent reviews and must now suppose Flint is no longer in business. Now looking into Square. Full Review

    Rates They have increased their rates dramatically without letting you know. There is now a usage fee of .30 plus an almost 3% fee. Square is now far less expensive. Flint went from being a great and convenient way to accept credit cards to being the most expensive. Plus no more phone support. Do not use. Full Review

    Unreliable I tried to use this app in a number of different settings and there was always some new glitch. Payment issues make customers uncomfortable. I need an app that works the same every time. They also need to prominently display their transaction fee. Full Review

    Great Program - Terrible Starting Limits Loved it at first.. Worked a week or two...Then the declines started, and now it won't take anything.. customer services says they are looking into it, but two days and no change. This app is costing me money now since it wont process a card. Forced to use square... At least its reliable. Full Review

    Tara Cameron Published date: February 8, 2016

    Do not use this app! No phone customer support. Time consuming emails back and forth to figure out issues. No card swipe and the photo capture feature rarely works forcing one to manually input card info. Transactions have long processing times. Transactions come back unauthorized forcing client to figure out another form of payment. Then later to find out transaction did go through and customer was double charged. Large amounts of money failed to be deposited due to failure of communication that another company needs tax Full Review

    Not good for tips I am in the same boat as another review. I am a hairstylist and I have an android phone. I have contacted customer service twice about not being able to enable the tip option. Nothing has been done yet so I have been using square. I would prefer flints lower % but tips are a huge part of my income I do not want to lose! Full Review

    Still have hope for Flint I was shocked in February like most of you, to find out Flint was disappearing into the sunset. But Flint found a way to keep their app accessible to us by partnering with Stripe for payment processing. Yes, the fees are higher than before, but the per transaction fees are still better (for me) than the additional "standard" monthly or annual fee charged by some other companies. I love the invoicing feature, but currently seem to be having trouble with the card scanning feature. Hope to get it working again Full Review

    Android support horrible I'm a hair stylist, and tips are a big part of my business. No matter how many times I enable tips, it will not save that setting. ios doesn't have this problem. Customer service recognizes that this is a known issue, but it's not a big enough one to warrant having a timeline when this vital feature is to be fixed. Waited 2 months, no fix. Bye Flint!

    Goldie Hirsch Published date: November 12, 2015

    Great business tool! I can accept payments from anywhere and at anytime, then email receipts to clients at the end of the transaction. I love that this app helps avoid late payments, penalties and policy cancellations for customers, regardless of where either of us is when the payment comes due. Funding is overnight, so I have peace of mind knowing that I can advance payment to the insurance companies immediately. Full Review

    So much better than PayAnywhere Only thing that I don't like is that you can't call them directly. If there is an issue you need to deal with it via email or online chat. Other than that it is a great app! Full Review

    Faulty Flint used to work well most of the time. Customer service is responsive. Even after doing everything customer service tells me to do, days later all my attempted transactions are declined. One actually went through but showed declined on my phone. Bad for business. I feel totally frustrated and ready to ditch Flint for another service. Full Review

    Old version-was very easy to use, however sometimes it may take what seems a minute to process, but really it's not. Customer is sometimes a little apprehensive about the scan but will do it because of your business reputation. I have not had any payment problems from Flint as of the date of this review. User since May 2015. Another review pending upgrade.... Full Review

    what is the point of downloading it? I Google "how to take credit card payments with a smart phone" and this app comes up with good reviews and a nice looking website. I download this app only to see I can even use it. What is the point? put this on your website that you are "working on something new" I'm not keeping an unworkable app on my phone. very disappointing. bait and switch. Full Review
