Flint Mobile, Inc. (www.flint.com), the mobile payments company that enables on-the-go businesses to accept credit or debit card payments through their iPhones without extra card reader hardware, unveiled new social marketing and customer management features at the Macworld/iWorld conference. Available for free on the Apple App Store®, Flint is the only company in the mobile payments market to offer searchable transaction data for customer marketing as well as customizable Facebook integration to increase word-of-mouth referrals.
Flint’s new customer management features allow merchants to easily filter transaction data by a broad set of parameters including the product/service name, purchase date, transaction amount, card type, transaction memo, loyalty offer, and other customizable details. The data can then be downloaded along with customer email addresses and used for marketing and reporting purposes.
The new release also simplifies how small businesses integrate their Facebook marketing efforts with the payment process. In seconds, a merchant can link their Facebook® Page to their Flint account and enable an online social dashboard. Once linked, the merchant is able to prompt its customers to post ratings and reviews to Facebook from the electronic receipt of every transaction. Flint’s seamless integration with Facebook APIs allows a merchant’s customers to quickly share recommendations with their friends and simultaneously post a testimonial on the merchant’s Facebook Page.
“Flint’s mission is to empower small businesses and individual entrepreneurs to easily accept payments and maximize their client relationships—all through a simple, mobile-centric approach,” said Greg Goldfarb, co-founder and CEO of Flint Mobile.
