***As an alternative, we would suggest you contact Payment Alliance.  We asked them if they support transactions having to do with firearms related businesses and below is a copy & paste of their response:

  1. My Dad opened up a small gun shop last year, I help to get setup for Square not catching the fine print that firearms and ammunition are not allowed. Why would we have ever thought that a legal product regulated by the federal govt would be banned by them or any card processor? Paypal is the same way I have found out. Frankly I’m outraged, this is nothing but political in my opinion. What’s more upsetting is they just sent us an email stating they were suspending our account. No phone call, not letter, and it was a “noreply” email. That’s unprofessional and insulting. I realize, shame on us for not reading the fine print closer, but again. We follow the law, and are regulated by the ATF how’d of thought. Unconstitutional gun control will sneak up on us with small restrictions or costs that will add up and make it prohibitive for dealer to sell and consumer to purchase if we don’t keep these things in check. Not only will I be boycotting Square, I’ll be doing the same with paypal. And I’ll be sharing this information with everyone I know that would care.

  2. I just was directed to the 2ACheck website where they indicated that Square had received a failing grade regarding 2nd Amendment “rights” and asking that folks boycott Square. I am emailing you to let you know that I fully support your policy and will NOT be boycotting Square.

  4. Thanks for the heads-up Eric. We did not “recommend” Intuit, so much as mention it as a possible alternative, with the caveat that we are not very familiar with them. We will look into Payment Alliance, and have just contacted them.

    • “viable alternative” is stating it’ll work, when it in-fact it does not work. Saying that something that is viable, but you haven’t looked into them is very contradictory.

      Just look on Payment Alliance’s website, they specifically state they deal with the gun industry. https://www.gopai.com/Solutions/Merchant-Solutions/Industry-specific-Bundles/Firearms Payment Alliance will donate a portion of what they bring in to the NRA, but will withhold your amount if you want you don’t want to donate to the NRA. Paying a monthly fee, usually around $25-$35, is well worth it compared to having your funds being frozen for violating a payment processor’s vague prohibited business list (e.g. Paypal).

      There are several other payment processors that will allow you to sell firearm parts and accessories if it doesn’t require an FFL. You have to remember that most of these payment processors consider firearm sales a high-risk business, even before Operation Choke Point.

  5. Intuit GoPayment? Are you kidding me? Why would you recommend these payment providers without knowing their history? Intuit has a history of rejecting gun dealers, and freezing their accounts. If you did a quick search it would reveal that.

    Always make sure to read a processing company’s policy on various businesses. Make sure to also ask, in email, if they accept your firearms related business before processing with that company. If the payment processing company is not sure, move on to another company who does. You do not want to have your accounts frozen after-the-fact.

    There are companies, like Payment Alliance, that specifically deal with firearm dealers. Even if you don’t sell firearms but sell firearm accessories, I would still use a payment processor that accepts firearm dealers due to the risk of having your payment process freeze your funds. Paypal is a perfect example of how their policy prohibits the sale of firearm parts.
