Flint Mobile has announced a partnership Leap Payments who will resell Flint’s mobile payment services.
Leap Payments selected Flint’s differentiated solution to give it the right combination of capabilities to win in the small business marketplace. Leap will promote Flint to three different audiences which include new customers that require mobile payment capabilities, existing merchant account customers that need to extend their commerce capabilities and merchants who might otherwise choose card reader-based mobile solutions.
“We are very pleased to be working 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.”
“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.”
