Frequently Asked Questions

How is Tactical Payments different from other merchant service providers?

Tactical Payments works exclusively with 2nd Amendment friendly processors and sponsor banks, which enables us to provide the most reliable credit card processing solutions in the firearms industry. We offer competitive rates, friendly customer support, and easy integrations with GunBroker and other firearm industry software and retail point of sale platforms.

What types of firearms industry businesses does Tactical Payments accept as clients?

We provide merchant accounts for all types of gun industry businesses, including businesses that are considered “high risk” by other merchant services providers, as well as businesses that are rejected by the big banks for “political” or ideological reasons. Our clients include local “brick and mortar” gun shops and shooting ranges, as well as online firearms dealers who sell primarily via GunBroker and other internet platforms. We also provide merchant services for pawn shops, training services, ammunition retailers, and manufacturers and retailers of accessories and firearms related products.

Do you provide merchant accounts for non-US based businesses?

Sorry, we are unable to provide merchant services for foreign or offshore businesses, or any company that is headquartered outside of the USA. To be approved for a merchant account with Tactical Payments, the business owner must have a valid SSN and US issued identification (driver’s license, US passport, etc).

Do I need an FFL to obtain a merchant account?

Yes, if you are selling firearms, you will need a valid or pending FFL to accept credit and debit card payments. Ammunition and accessories sellers do not typically require a license.
