Virtual Terminal

A virtual terminal is an online portal you can use to enter credit card transactions. Virtual terminals are essentially synonymous with “payment gateways.” At TacticalPay we primarily work with and NMI as virtual terminals. If you have a different payment gateway/virtual terminal you’d prefer to use, we can likely work with that as well.

Businesses that sell gun related products online can choose from our two pre-integrated payment gateways, which are pre-integrated with most major online shopping carts and website platforms. Or, if you have a pre-existing payment gateway that you’d prefer instead, we’ll provide the API codes you’ll need. Either way, our eCommerce firearms merchant accounts will have you accepting credit and debit cards fast and for less.
