    Ok i am working on opening up an account on both auction arms and gunbrokers. Question i have. I was using both paypal and ebay. With ebay going totally anti gun. Once my auctions end on ebay thats it for me. However i need to find a place that can accept credit cards as easily as paypal did. i have been looking for a while now however most places require a merchant account then charge some hefty start up fees along with monthly fees. These fees would make it a lot harder to make a dollar. So question has anyone found anything that even comes close to a paypal. I guess the best part that i like about paypal is that people would email me on things that they knew i had. So i would create an invoice on paypal and send it to them. I have not found an establishment that i can use so far. Unless i go check and money order only. However that would take soooo long and i would loose a lot of business.

    Might want to try Stormpay or Gearpay. I don't know much about either, but they're supposed to be more gun-friendly than Paypal or Ebay.

    i know how you feel scrat

    i know how you feel scrat. paypal is so easy to use and makes shopping a breeze on ebay. i just don't have the time or want to deal with the hassel of going and getting a money order and mailing it......probably because i work rotating shift work and i spend most of my life at a place that i call hell.
    that is the only reason why i don't buy more items on gunbroker. i hope it doesn't hurt your business too much. good luck!

    Stormpay?

    Oh well.

    I have a Gearpay account I've been using. Works almost the same as PayPal.

    From Gearpay's TOS

    PAYPAL has actually gotten a little better on guns. I fyou read their TOS, they actually allow their service to be used to pay preapproved individuals and companies for guns and ammo.
