With Congress taking a “hands-off” approach on the topic of firearm regulations altogether, the banks have stepped in to take a stance. Financial institutions like Citigroup have made changes in recent years after bad publicity affected the industry. They announced they’d prohibit the sale of firearms to customers who do not pass a background check and keep guns out of the hands of people under 21.
Additionally, the bank is said to bar any bump stocks and standard-capacity magazines sales. They took this further and applied these policies to all clients of Citigroup who offer credit cards backed by the institution. Moreover, they expect the same practices from other banking services working through the company.
Selling Firearms Online
With Citigroup pivoting its brand association by not opening firearms merchant accounts, it’s more difficult to find mainstream providers to bank with. In turn, this affects online gun retailers looking for credit card processing or any other payment services.
What does this mean for you if you’re a business that needs a firearms merchant account? You must seek a reputable payment processing company, like Signature Payments.
