REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Flint Mobile, a leading mobile payment solution, today announced that Leap Payments, a credit card merchant services firm, will resell Flint's mobile payment services. In a competitive space, Leap selected Flint's differentiated solution to give it the right combination of capabilities to win in the small business marketplace.
Flint's combination of instant setup, easy credit card acceptance without a card reader, and on-the-go invoicing with online payments is proving to be the ideal solution for local service businesses. The addressable user base includes more than 17 million independent U.S. businesses that work outside of traditional storefront environments, such as photographers, contractors, IT consultants, health and fitness consultants, and freelancers.
"We are very pleased to be working with with Leap," said Flint co-founder and CEO Greg Goldfarb. "We have optimized for service verticals by uniquely bringing multiple payment use cases together in one simple app and there has been tremendous adoption among the segments where Leap specializes."
Leap will promote Flint to three audiences including new customers that require mobile payment capabilities, existing merchant account customers that need to extend their commerce capabilities to the field, and merchants who might otherwise choose card reader-based mobile solutions.
"We are excited to join Flint's reseller partner program and look forward to offering our customers the multiple benefits of the Flint Mobile powered solution," said Will Detterman, CEO of Leap Payments, who has 15 years' experience selling merchant solutions to service businesses. "In addition to easy on-the-spot card processing, their invoicing capabilities are very attractive, especially for professionals in various industries. Flint Mobile has the advantage of not requiring card reader hardware, making it easy for us to support and an ideal tool for on-the-go businesses that are moving away from more traditional merchant services."
