    This last paragraph is such a load of crap . . . glad I have an alternative in place to sell. Many dealers have been impacted by this and other virtue signaling from banks.

    Anyone have time and money to invest in a platform that would cater to licensed FFLs? If so, now is your chance.

    If you don't like the policies a company has, don't shop there.

    The problem is I don't think most of us have heard of shopify, so no one cares that much.

    So y'all couldn't be bothered to read the article?

    Shopify is a selling service for online merchants . . . Franklin Armory used them to sell triggers and other parts.

    They should still sell them, but I don't care if they don't.

    Do you want to force them to offer their services to gun merchants?

    I don't necessarily want to force anyone to do anything . . . that's why I said if you've got the means to stand up a gun-friendly solution for selling/payment processing now might be your shot to get rich.

    It's just unfortunate that Monday it was acceptable to sell and then later it was suddenly a problem.

    This isn't a black market for anything . . . these are legal businesses. Some banks are suddenly virtue signaling and refusing to process payments too.

    Doesn't make much sense for a company to choose to lose money like that . . . but I guess folks can find a different platform.

    You're only going to get 2A nutters replying in a thread like this.

    (Oh, and those who want to poke the 2A nutters with a stick.) :)

    I figured all of those folks whining about someone not baking a cake or Alex Jones getting kicked off Twitter might have a comment or two.

    For this particular company to choose to no longer allow firearms or firearm parts to be supported by them, is kind of a non issues. The banks refusing to loan to firearms manufacturers and places refusing to sell long arms to people under 21, is a much bigger issue. The banks may be denying those companies the ability to do business, where I don't believe that to be the case here.

    Agree to disagree on whether this is an issue or not . . . I happen to believe it is. Especially based on the actions of other commonly used platforms. Of course there are other options, but most aren't as "dummy proof" as Shopify or Etsy, etc.

    There is not accepting new customers who sell firearms and then there is cutting off/removing existing customers . . . completely removing an existing customers ability to process online payments without notice is definitely denying their ability to do business.

    Lots of people have problems selling things designed to kill people. I wouldn't want to be a part of it either.
