|Flint can take card payments on your mobile, without|
the need for any additional hardware
Given the fiddliness of carrying around a dongle as per the solutions from Square, iZettle, MPowa, Payleven (shall we go on...) then Flint really have a point of difference.
Yet, we still can't help raising the concern that more than the other solutions, this is going to face a huge amount of consumer trust issues - how keen will the average cardholder be on having his credit, debit, prepaid card being photographed by a stranger?
We said it before, but the technology may not be the barrier here. A great idea, but we'll be watching to see how and if it can take off.
