Firearms Payment Processing

Having trouble keeping your firearms merchant account?

PayKings can help you find gun friendly payment processing solutions for your firearms business.

Looking for a Firearms Merchant Account?

Finding a firearms merchant account is critical for running a gun dealership. One solution is to look for merchants who are recognized as an NRA endorsed credit card processing company. Companies like PayPal, Stripe, or Square, choose not to partake in the sale of firearms, ammunition, and other gun accessories.

If you are in need of a reliable credit card processing partner for your firearms website, PayKings has several merchant account solutions that are suited to your industry.


How Can I Get NRA Endorsed Credit Card Processing?

When it comes to getting a firearms merchant account, it is crucial to take the right steps from the beginning in order to keep your business running smoothly. Anyone who plans to sell firearms, ammunition, or gun accessories must first obtain a Federal Firearms License. An FFL is a federally issued license that enables the selling and trading of firearms. The FFL must be obtained first in order to legally sell firearms and is necessary to establish a high risk payment processor for your online or mobile sales.

Once you have established your Federal Firearms License, you will find that companies like Amazon, PayPal and Square still deny payment processing for firearms dealers. In order to acquire the firearms merchant account you need for your business, you must seek a high-risk payment processor.

FFL Credit Card Processing

Because  FFL credit card processing is hard to obtain, companies specializing in high-risk industries can provide the solution that you need. The success of your firearm sales business rests with speaking with an experienced and knowledgeable payment processor who can offer you unique underwriting services at the lowest possible prices. PayKings is dedicated to finding the high risk payment processing account you need with our twenty-four (and counting) NRA endorsed credit card processing solutions. With PayKing’s fast firearm account approval, your search for a high risk firearm merchant account ends here.

Be sure to ask your business development representative whether they have the ability to reevaluate your firearms merchant account type, and discover potential limitations frequently imposed upon gun merchant accounts.

Why Is Finding Gun Friendly Credit Card Processors So Difficult?

Finding gun-friendly credit card processors for your gun-related business is indeed a challenge. Being a highly federally regulated industry makes establishing payment solutions much more difficult. Firearm businesses are unable to secure payment processing with traditional banks nor are they able to process payments online or mobile through payment processors like PayPal or Stripe.

Mainstream merchant account solutions lack an underwriting process to verify every party involved in firearm sales for their Federal Firearms License. For firearms dealers, this process is absolutely necessary to ensure the legality of the sale. Hence, PayPal, Stripe or Square simply do not want to get involved in such an industry because of the high risks associated.

Being aware of the risks associated with the firearms industry is an important step in understanding why traditional payment processing solutions are not the answer. With ever-changing laws surrounding the sale of firearms, it is important to secure a credit card processing company that specializes in the industry.

If you are in need of a merchant account solution for your firearms business, turn to PayKings, the experts in high risk merchant accounts. PayKings are the leading authorities in the industry with in-house, pre-underwriting services tailored to the firearm solution that best suits your business.
