Honest, gun-friendly credit card processors 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.

Payment processors for the most part, though, do not care about this detail.

Do you need an FFL to process firearms payments online?

Yes, in order to be approved for a merchant account that allows e-commerce FFL transactions you must have a valid Federal Firearms License. The merchant account piece integrates with your payment gateway and is required in order to accept credit cards. Additionally, the name of your business – including “LLC” or “Inc,” if applicable – must match your license exactly.

Can you apply for firearms-friendly payment processing while your FFL is pending?

Yes, you can apply for a firearms merchant account, submit all other documentation, and review your payment processing rates and terms in detail while your FFL is pending.

You must, although, wait until your FFL is issued before your merchant account will be approved and your payment gateway is set up. Let us help you with online firearms credit card processing today.
