Gun Friendly Merchant Credit Card Processing
Commonly most of our FFLTRUST
members start with the concept of obtaining a FFL license, when their plans’ are business aimed, they go about it with baby steps - starting small and planning to extend as the venture grows. Some don’t plan on grand sales strategies in the beginning and definitely nothing in the direction of opening up a storefront at first! But life is funny sometimes and one must always adapt and change initial plans. Now, cash is king, and accepted everywhere. Nevertheless, paying with credit cards is becoming increasingly more habitual. This is also the case when we’re talking about firearms sales. The great thing about the firearm business is that the customer base is used to pay an extra 2 - 3% increase on top of standard price to cover credit card fees. FFL dealer sales went up 30% once we started accepting credit cards, particularly at gun shows. Make sure to post a small sign at the show on your table indicating you accept credit cards.
Sadly, most credit card processing companies will not agree with dealers into firearms sales. In fact, the most of them won’t.
