Chapters have been requesting to take online payments quite often. There are several factors that need to be considered when taking online payments. You will need a payment gateway/merchant account to accept online payments, which accepts and routes the payments to your bank account.
We have a few recommendations and options we detail below. Keep in mind, if you will be doing firearm related sales for raffles, PayPal/Square will not work as they will eventually shut your account down.
Authorize.net will work well for banquets, events, gun raffles and everything else you need to do for firearm related sales. Authorize.net is both a Payment Gateway and Payment Gateway & Merchant. You can fill out our reseller application here to get started with us. If you are not sure about which option to choose, please let us know.
After signing up with Authorize.net and your account is active, we will need API Login ID and API Transaction Key so we can link up your website with Authorize.net. You will find the API Login ID and API Transaction Key in your Authorize.net Merchant Account Login and under: Account > Settings > API Credentials & Key. View the image to view instructions.
