The Ammo Industry
The United States Ammunition Retailers have always been a boon to the American economy. According to a 2019 National Shooting Sports Foundation survey, the firearms and ammunition industry accounted for approximately $60.02 billion in total economic activity in the country.
The ammunition industry alone accounts for 40% of the revenue of the larger firearms industry, making the role of the ammunition industry as a jobs provider for local communities across the United States crucial.
Merchant Services for Online Ammunition Merchant Account
Regardless of the economic growth provided by this essential industry, if you own or operate an ammunition business, you may have been denied a merchant account by a mainstream bank or merchant services company. Or worse, your ammunition business may have had its merchant account terminated with little or `no previous notice.
Many banks and merchant services providers will not accept your business for one of three reasons:
1. The federal government regulates firearm sales, and therefore, additional underwriting is required by the credit card processor. (Even if you don’t sell firearms and only sell ammo, your business may be lumped into this category by the bank.
2. Due to the current political climate, firearms and the 2nd Amendment are a “hot button” issue. Some banks and merchant services companies have taken an “anti” 2nd Amendment stance, refusing to work with these businesses, even if they are otherwise desirable clients.
