PistolPay – New Way to Buy and Sell Guns and Other Valuables Online
I recently tried to sell an EOTech on eBay. For some reason, eBay removed the listing because it violated its terms of service relating to “assault weapons” or some nonsense. There are EOTechs being sold all over the site, so it must have been my description of using the scope on my M4 in Afghanistan (it was my personal scope I took with me).
Likewise, Paypal’s terms of service prohibit using its platform for the sale or purchase of firearms, ammunition, accessories or knives. Firearms buyers and sellers have experienced frozen accounts and complete account shut-downs when trying to use PayPal.
But, now there is an alternative for gun owners frustrated with these forms of online payment.
PistolPay, LLC, the premier platform for security in the trade of valuable items, has signed an agreement with professional firearms trainer, author and consultant, Rob Pincus, to create awareness of the benefits for buyers and sellers in using PistolPay, a pro-gun online payment service for buyers and sellers.
“I am proud to be working with PistolPay and encourage everyone to sign up for a free account and use it for any and every online transaction,” Rob Pincus elaborated. “PistolPay is 100% pro-Second Amendment and is owned and operated by gun owners. PistolPay was established specifically to empower and aid both buyers and sellers of items of value – those looking to exchange one thing of value – a Cartier watch, a fine piece of art, or a firearm, for instance – for another – money.”
PistolPay was created by a group of entrepreneurs frustrated by the complications of purchasing high value items online. PistolPay is a completely transaction-neutral and non-political online purchasing system, for buyers and sellers, that is backed by its strategic partners, Merchant Services LTD and BB&T Bank.
Partnering with Merchant Services LTD, an industry-leading credit card processing service provider that furnishes customers with secure, fast and cost-effective credit card and ACH processing solutions, PistolPay has developed a new paradigm in the buying and selling of high value items. The process is simple and unlike any other online transaction tool. PistolPay protects a buyer’s personal information by safely and securely taking payments from the buyer’s checking account or credit card. PistolPay also protects the seller by verifying the receipt of buyer funds before notifying the seller that the transaction funds are both available and guaranteed. Sellers can breathe easier knowing the funds have been transferred from the buyer and are ready for deposit with no fraud risk. PistolPay holds the transaction funds until the buyer has inspected and verified the purchase is as described in condition, quality, quantity, and provenance.
