Firearm Friendly Merchant Processing Made Affordable With Gearfire Payments

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Gearfire Payments announces industry alignment and strategic focus on Shooting Sports. With over 2,000 retail accounts, the largest industry-dedicated processing solution provides the retail firearm community with new programs that reduce transaction costs, provide cost transparency and eliminate the risks of business interruption caused by non-industry-friendly financial institutions. Gearfire Payments' full suite of solutions includes EMV card terminals, POS-eComm-Auction Site integration, mobile card acceptance capability, and invoicing solutions.

"Obtaining honest and transparent merchant processing solutions is not an easy feat for any retailer, and even more difficult for those operating in the shooting sports industry," said Taylor Phillipps, Operations Lead, Gearfire Payments. "Not only do processing companies make it intentionally difficult to decipher their fees and charges, they continuously hike rates, unbeknownst to the retailer. There is also a significant risk that processing may not be supported online – or at all – given the current political climate. Gearfire Payments has set its course on eliminating these issues in support of our retailers' needs." 

Taylor Phillipps, formerly of Total System Services (TSYS), one of the largest processing companies in the U.S., recently joined Gearfire Payments to bring true depth and expertise to the firm's clients. Working in conjunction with the leaders of its sister Companies at Gearfire, Retail Technology Group and Orchid Advisors, Mr. Phillipps is focused on incorporating merchant processing ino the industry's only fully integrated end-to-end retail solution. These four organizations provide Federal Firearms Licensing, ATF Compliance, in-store POS software, online eCommerce applications and the ability to accept credit in any environment.
