Why do you need merchant services for your firearms business?

Why do you need merchant services?Accepting credit cards for your business is key to future success

There is no question the firearms industry is booming. Sales of guns and ammunition have seen double digit increases over previous years, and they show no signs of slowing down. While many dealers have moved toward accepting credit cards for their sales, both in-store and online, many have avoided doing so because of the perceived hassle associated with merchant services. Capital Merchant Solutions knows the hassles that come along with opening up a merchant account for firearms sales, but we’re here to tell you that having the right merchant account is vital to the continued success of your business.

Many underwriters flat out refuse to take payments for firearms due to industry misconceptions and outright lies about firearm dealers. The truth is that our gun dealers that process credit cards with us are some of the lowest-risk and most upstanding merchants we have in our portfolio. We are proud to work with the firearms industry to get them set up with reliable and cost-efficient payment processing. Businesses that work with us oftentimes see their sales increase 15-25% in the first month alone; customers like the convenience and protection a credit card provides, and it makes no sense to alienate those who wish to purchase firearms with plastic. Yes, there are fees involved; and yes, there is an approval process to go through in order to accept payments. However, CMS makes the process as straightforward and streamlined as possible. We are not out to gouge firearm merchants simply because you have limited options. We want to partner with you for the long term to grow your business and help you succeed in the industry.

Our sales team is ready to assist you in getting set up with a merchant account and payment gateway at a reasonable cost to your business. Don’t hesitate to contact us today, and let us show you why partnering with CMS is the best choice for your payment processing needs. We have a full suite of products available, from mobile solutions to online payment systems. Let us know what you are looking for, and we will right to work for you!
