    Another point to consider in such a review: Both allow linking to a bank account. Is either one better than the other?

      Hi Marc,

      Both allow account linking with the same level of ease. I believe they both still use the protocol where they send micro transactions to the account and then you confirm the transaction amounts to link the account.

        Very informative article! I’ll be looking into Flint now for sure! I tried square a few years ago and fell victim to one of their random “freezes” – it seemed at the time as though it conveniently happened as soon as I hit my first $400 sales day – took 6 months to get paid on that (they held the funds for 180 days “in case of any potential chargebacks” – or to collect interest on it, whichever the case may be)….There were no chargebacks I might add lol….anyway Flint’s stability and flexibility definitely appeals to me and I appreciate the obvious time and effort you put into this comparison.
