FFL payment gateways for WooCommerce & WordPress
Over the years we have helped countless FFL dealers find a stable way to accept credit cards for their WooCommerce WordPress website. Because of the popularity of the Woo/FFL combination, we decided to take a little time to go over some of the benefits of using WooCommerce for your site and how we can assist with a WooCommerce compatible 2A friendly payment gateway and merchant account.
Accepting FFL payments on WooCommerce easily
There are many obstacles to overcome before most web-stores get an e-commerce shop that mostly runs itself, especially when those shops are labeled as high-risk by payment processors. Fortunately, we specialize in helping FFL sites selling on WooCommerce connect with the best payment gateways and merchant accounts for their trade. We have navigated the road for other FFL dealers, and we’re well equipped to get you set up with a choice of FFL friendly gateway solutions.
Payment gateways for FFL merchants
ePN, NMI, and Authorize.Net are three of the best high-risk payment gateways in the world, especially for American e-commerce businesses offering FFL to FFL shipments. In addition to our insights into the right payment gateways for you to connect with, we also have several relationships with merchant account providers who will be able to open the appropriate merchant account for your e-commerce business and seamlessly integrate it with your WooCommerce store.
Correct payment gateway set-up from the get-go
You should know that these payment gateways and merchant accounts must be set up correctly. It’s easy to make a small mistake that will end up complicating your ability to charge customers and get paid. That’s why we don’t mind helping you step by step to make sure you don’t run into any problems down the road which might jeopardize your business.
Customize your FFL web-store with an open source platform
Using WooCommerce on WordPress has several advantages you might not find on other platforms. Due to WordPress being an open source platform, there are many widgets, plugins, and tricks you can use to improve your business and website. For example, you can add coding to help you locate the closest FFL to deliver to for your customer, who will have to go through a background check and travel to whichever FFL dealer you choose to send their merchandise for pickup.
Knowing the FFL dealer closest to your customer can make all the difference between a frustrated customer and a returning one. There is a lot of advanced website coding that can benefit both your customers and help with the logistics of running an online FFL shop. While we don’t deal with all the coding, we know how to correctly tune your payment gateway, and making it work, for your FFL e-commerce store.
Background checks and other FFL essentials
One of the most significant obstacles in this particular high-risk industry is all the red tape and regulation. While it is essential to have in place for this type of merchandise, it can make business more complicated and creates extra steps before a purchase can take place. One of these incredibly essential steps, the basic nature of an FFL itself, is the background check.
Background checks, and online security
Not taking all necessary steps could land you in the middle of a lot of legal issues and potentially hefty fines or even incarceration for negligence. It is critical that you consult a legal expert before opening your FFL web store to ensure you are following all local, state, and federal laws.
FFL competition and market potential
However, these regulations do come with some advantages. These extra steps will significantly deter the amount of potential competition in this industry. There is a lot of potential for profit in an industry that doesn’t seem to be shrinking despite the media spotlight. Another advantage is that once you get your FFL web store up and running, it’s easy to become a reputable site and store if you put a little emphasis on customer service. Help your customers, talk to them and maybe even create a forum (which is easy to do on WordPress). Creating a forum for your customers to communicate with you and each other is a great way to encourage a community that will keep your business healthy. The enthusiasts in this industry are a vibrant bunch, and a little effort can go a long way in making them happy.
