    Don’t get entangled in the ups and downs of using Flint. It’s very aggravating and time wasting.When it works it’s good, but herein lies the problem – your never know when it won’t work. I’ve had it for 5 years now and sporadically problems arise. In the last three weeks both my iPhone App and my Mac have issues. I can’t even get into the Mac, which I need to get my monthly financial report from. Does costumer support help? No, it’s the worse. It’s all by mail – 5 days a week. It takes forever to get back to you, and you keep having to clarify and ask the same questions. They really don’t care if this is your livelihood. Which is why, this week I’m going elsewhere. Also, the camera doesn’t always read the numbers, and with the dark credit cards you have to key in half the cards.

    Without notice I learned that Flint is suspended! After having trouble signing in to accept payment from customers, I contacted Flint and they told me they were revamping the platform for Android and the process would take a few weeks. This didn’t make sense. They offered no solution as to what I’d do to accept credit card payments during that time. I contacted them a second time, but no response. It was after this I realized they were shutting down. I tried to log on to close my account but there’s nowhere to do that. I did the free subscription, but my concern is they may access to my bank information. Any suggestions? Thank you

      Has anyone who has not received their 1099K from Flint/Vantiv been successful in obtaining a copy? I had been with Flint since Jan. of 2014. I received no notice of their closing and only found out when I went to process a charge and it wasn’t accepted. When I called Vantiv for my 1099K, they said I was removed from their client list and they couldn’t help me. Not sure what to do about this. I had trouble last year with both Flint and Vantiv getting a corrected 1099K…took 6 months of hounding and finally got the corrected version in October of 2015. Am still looking for a provider that can handle small volume for a small massage therapy business. Would love feedback. Thanks.

        Hi Ann,

        Cartwheel Register & Venmo work well for my small business.

        I signed up for Cartwheel Register about a month ago. It’s great! They use card scanning like Flint and the processing fees are lower than Square (2.6%, plus $0.24 for scanned or manually processed transactions). At the moment, the features are limited, but looks like more will be added soon. Customer service is excellent — very responsive to all questions and inquiries.

        One of my customers asked if I accepted payments through Venmo. I signed up & love it! The features are extremely limited and your customer will need to have a Venmo account, but it’s easy to use and there are no fees for the merchant.

        Hope that helps!
        Best,
        Jill
