Flint Mobile has integrated its mobile phone payment app, which works without a card reader, with Intuit's QuickBooks Online to expedite payments for small businesses that work outside traditional storefront environments.

Flint automatically syncs transactions, line item information and customer information with a user’s QuickBooks Online account, providing reporting and customer history tracking.

The app is able to take payments by scanning the card number with the camera instead of swiping with extra hardware. It can send invoices for online bill payment, handle cash and checks as well as card payments, and manage customized coupons with Apple Passbook integration. 

Merchants can begin accepting payments with no need for a merchant account or waiting period for hardware delivery. The app is a free download, but there are transaction fees of 1.95 percent for debit card payments, 2.95 percent for credit cards, and no fees for managing cash, checks, invoices or coupons.

The app is available on Intuit’s apps.com marketplace at http://appcenter.intuit.com/flint.
