Firearms sales in the US are skyrocketing, and legal, online gun sales are becoming more commonplace every day. Blue Payment Agency offers easy approvals for online firearms dealers and affordable gun merchant accounts that work with shopping carts like WooCommerce, Shopify, and Shift4Shop, along with niche platforms like AmmoReady and GunBroker.
Why is good credit card processing for gun dealers hard to find?
Unfortunately for legal online FFL dealers, firearms credit card processing can be a real challenge. Online dealers hoping to establish second-amendment-friendly credit card payments on popular website builders like WooCommerce or Shopify quickly find out that PayPal, Stripe, Shopify Payments, and WooCommerce Payments do not allow credit card processing for guns.
Online firearms dealers must deal with the misconception that guns are simply shipped to the buyer – like an Amazon purchase. Anyone familiar with internet gun credit card processing realizes that internet gun purchases must be shipped to a federally licensed firearms dealer, who must then perform a federal background check on the buyer before transferring the firearm face-to-face. Online gun dealers are heavily regulated by the ATF and are known for their cautiousness and attention to detail.
Payment processors for the most part, though, do not care about this detail.
