    Hello,

    I was curious what everyone was using to sell product at the gun shows they attend? Square is a very popular option but they are NOT firearms friendly. We have programs just for this industry and for all of us who enjoy being outdoors and shooting whatever firearm we want too.

    Please let me know as it's a great learning tool for myself and my company. I posted the web link for the Square regulation below. Under the Square legal agreement, line item 23, (23) sales of (i) firearms, firearm parts or hardware, and ammunition.

    Many use regular dedicated card-swipe readers with 3G or 4G connectivity. The last cell-phone based one I used as a customer was QwickPay.

    Thanks for the reply, I appreciate the feedback. We have Qwickpay as an option and also EPN Mobile. They are both firearms friendly, quick and cost effective.

    Intuit Gopayment has explicit options for FFL dealers.

    Intuit allows just for retail sales though according to their regulations? One of my customers experienced trouble with them when they hand keyed a transaction.

    The benefit our program has here is its endorsed by the N.R.A. and N.S.S.F. Part of the fees are donated back to those organizations monthly and we base our pricing around transactions and monthly volume.

    Thanks for the feedback too. I attached the Intuit regs below to checkout. Look under section 4 and MOTO restrictions.

    Intuit has a higher fee for card-not-present transactions, like all credit card processors.

    been going to gun shows since 1968 and I think the only thing I have used to buy something at a show was cash. Everyone seams to really like it.

    When I sold my handmade knives at shows it was back in the days of an imprinter.

    PayPal is well known for being anti-gun.

    I would think a card transaction would not have to spell out anything but sporting goods???? A thought.
