It’s Time to Pull the Trigger and Open your Online Gun & Ammon Webstore

Jul 28, 2014

Gun and ammo sales are steadily rising, and many brick-and-mortar retailers cannot keep up. There is a new option available for gun and ammo sales, and that is the concept of selling the items online. While it may seem like a wild idea, it does exist, and it can be lucrative.

There are many reasons that gun and ammo sales are rising, from the beginning of hunting season to fear in right-wing voters. Regardless of the reason, this is the perfect time to invest in an online gun and ammo business. It is rather easy unless your area has regulations against it, so be sure to consult with your local Chamber of Commerce or business licensure department before buying stock. While big money maker is the new guns and ammo, another item of interest is that many are opening gun repair shops online. If you are a great gun repairman, this could bring in some extra cash on top of the new gun and ammo sales.

While starting a gun and ammo website is rather simple, one key element you need is not so simple. Every website needs a merchant account, and it can be hard to find an online firearm merchant account because these businesses are at a higher risk of fraudulent activity. You need to find a high-risk merchant account processor, such as, or EMB, specializes in all types of high-risk merchants, including firearm merchants. We at EMB are dedicated to our cause, which is helping high-risk businesses gain success via online payment transactions. We are aware that these merchants face a higher risk of fraudulent activity, and we do not punish them for it. In addition to our firearm merchant accounts, we also offer chargeback insurance, which is a must-have for all high-risk merchants. Chargeback insurance helps alert the merchant to the challenged transactions, which is not always the case. It also helps lessen the fees that are incurred with chargebacks, which can be many times more than the actual transaction cost.

It is the perfect time to start a gun and ammo website. While a good business head is great, you must have a reliable firearms merchant account processor, as well.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.

EMB specializes in working with high-risk merchants. EMB works with many merchants, including but not limited to businesses in these industries: gambling and gaming, adult entertainment, nutraceuticals, vaping and e-cigarettes, electronics, tech support, travel, high-end furniture, weight loss programs, calling cards, e-books and software, and telecommunications.
