Whether you sell guns, ammo, or parts we have stable and affordable FFL payment processing accounts available. At BIG we have proudly supported the firearms industry from the very start.
We have worked hard to establish close relationships with both FFL friendly acquiring banks and credit card processors. With these relationships BIG is able to offer the most competitive and stable firearms merchant accounts to accept credit cards. Unlike PayPal, Stripe, or Square you will never have to worry about delayed payouts, unfair shutdowns, or account freezes.
Operating a firearms business is difficult enough without having to worry about paying unfair “high risk” merchant services fees. Let alone waking up to find your FFL merchant account has been shut down!
Why are FFL merchant accounts considered High Risk?
Don't Worry.The firearms industry is considered to be high risk by many processing banks for a few reasons. Perceived potential liability, charge back ratios, and the potential for “brand damage” lead the list! Furthermore, since the firearms industry is federally regulated, FFL merchants accepting credit cards are subject to special underwriting requirements that many processors cannot support. BIG has long been the go to processor for high risk merchant services including guns, ammo, and gun parts merchant accounts. We are proud to offer transparent, dependable, and affordable merchant accounts to all FFL businesses.
