Ensuring your payment gateway and the merchant account it connects to are both 2A friendly is crucial since, without proper back-end underwriting and integration for FFL processing, site owners risk shut-down accounts. You can read more about the difference between a payment gateway and a merchant account on the frequently asked questions section of our home page. We have often seen dealers set up a payment gateway through Authorize.Net only to find out later it was not approved for FFL to FFL sales. We will help you avoid that mistake. You can read more about Authorize.Net and FFL sales on our Authorize.Net FFL information page. 

Set up your FFL to FFL business correctly – the first time

Whenever you set up a high-risk business, like FFL to FFL or tactical sales, it’s vital to seek experienced legal advice before you start. There are many federal, state, and local laws that apply, and you want to avoid experiencing unnecessary legal trouble whenever possible.

At the same time, you must find and make use of established site builders and e-commerce software when creating your online FFL store. Even though many platforms have strict Terms and Conditions regarding tactical products they allow to be sold, website builders like BigCommerce, Shopify, Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, PrestaShop, and WooCommerce can work well for FFL salesif the back end merchant account is set up correctly.

GunBroker can help boost your legal, background checked online FFL to FFL sales

That said, it’s not easy to start out and grow an online business. Many successful “FFL to FFL” websites also make use of the long-established 2A auction website GunBroker. Since opening its online auction house back in 1999, GunBroker has established a far-reaching audience that allows you to tap into a broader marketplace with your products. Using GunBroker can be a handy way for you to grow your FFL to FFL sales, and with our help, all your merchant account deposits can flow through one account.

As mentioned, GunBroker facilities FFL to FFL e-commerce transactions. It provides an excellent service of managing legal sales that that go through the federal background check system.  For example, one very popular checkout system we support on GunBroker is the “Immediate Checkout” – as it’s the fastest and simplest checkout method for both the seller and buyer. For more information, you can visit this support page that explains it in greater detail.

2A friendly payment gateways and online credit card processing

When you create your account with GunBroker, you still need to have your own merchant account and payment gateway set up to integrate with their site. Finding the best possible payment gateway and merchant account for an FFL can be difficult if you’re unfamiliar with high-risk processing. However, it’s a vital next step in order to process credit card payments – regardless of whether it’s for your own site, through GunBroker, or, like many, through both.

The good news is that some of our favorite 2A friendly payment gateways work with a wide range of platforms, and even better – they work with GunBroker too. Among the payment gateways that we set up for FFL dealers are Authorize.Net, NMI (Network Merchants Inc), and ePN. If you’re selling a wide variety of products outside of solely selling FFL products, we can set you up correctly with NMI. NMI is beneficial in that regard, as you can manage multiple merchant accounts through one gateway login. Similar to Authorize.Net, ePN is another gateway we regularly recommend for FFL site owners.

With any of the above three gateways, you’ll be able to sell your FFL to FFL products both on your own site as well as through GunBroker. However, and this is a big caveat, all of these need to be set up correctly and connected to a high-risk friendly merchant account on the back end. This is by no means intended to discourage you from using them – they’re excellent. We just want to make sure you know this, so you don’t start selling without everything properly integrated. Our trusted, vetted independent agents help you with this back-end setup. We will quickly and straightforwardly recommend a payment gateway and merchant account that fits your business.

Get expert assistance – it’s better than going it alone

One of the main things we recommend for FFL or tactical e-commerce site owners is that they don’t shy away from getting expert support. When selling FFL to FFL, many moving pieces need to work together, and doing it all by yourself can be too much for most people. This includes the legal aspects, but also when it comes to processing payments.
