Gun & Ammo Retailer Merchant Accounts
Merchant Accounts for Gun and Ammo Retailers
Currently, the sale of firearms for hunting and home defense in the United States have risen to unprecedented records. The firearm and ammo business is booming, and many individuals are looking to get into the industry. Having the ability to accept credit and debit card transactions increases revenue and provides a convenient service to your customer base. Many gun sellers have been looking to utilize mobile and online credit card processing solutions for online gun sales and at gun shows. Regardless of how well the industry is doing, getting approved for a gun and ammo merchant account is difficult. Leap Payments is a merchant account provider that will allow gun and ammo vendors accept credit card payments at their shop and on the go.
High-Risk Gun and Ammo Industry Approval
Gun and ammo retailers have faced difficulty when it comes to the online space, often getting denied for the same services they offer at their retail location. The firearm industry is labeled as high-risk by the financial institutions for various reasons:
- Uncertainties of Future Regulations
- High Chargeback Rates
- Frequency of Fraudulent Sales
- Large Ticket/Transaction Amounts
As the future of online firearm sales changes, it will cause new obstacles for your business as it grows into the digital world. When it comes to processing online and mobile firearm credit card sales outside of the retail location, many common solutions such as Square and PayPal are now refusing service. Don’t get left behind with a company that refuses to let you grow and offer the best services to your customers. Leap Payments has custom solutions for gun and ammo merchant accounts to fit your business needs.
