Consumers and dealers face a lot of issues due to the lack of integration between the parties involved in the online gun selling process, from the seller, to the FFL, to the ATF itself. Consumers face the issue of having to stay updated on their respective state’s online gun laws and regulations.

Online gun retailers need to deal with the lack of accessibility FFLs’ data while dealing with the regulations and requirements set forth by the ATF. We also talk about how the ATF’s failure to maintain its database constantly updated negatively affects online gun dealers.

FFL (Federal Firearm License) eCommerce compliance is an absolute necessity for anyone who wants to sell guns online. We discuss what FFL is and the barriers for gun dealers to stay compliant with ATF and FFL Rules.

Our Ship to FFL Functionality and API allows FFLs to upload their licenses and enables customers to select a local FFL to ship the gun they have purchased to when placing their online order. This functionality is aimed at online firearms dealers who are searching for an easily accessible and optimized way for their customers to locate local FFL dealers.

If it wasn’t for this functionality, FFL dealers would have to resort to physically scanning and sending copies of their FFLs (Federal Firearms Licenses) to online gun dealers while customers would have to take it upon themselves to search for local FFLs and make sure that the FFL they have selected has their license on file with the gun vendor they are making the purchase from.

FFL API is a platform for developers and Firearm Dealers that integrate with Bigcommerce, Volusion, Magento and Custom Ecommerce Systems.


If you’re looking for a hosted eCommerce solution, try BigCommerce. Shopify does not allow the sales of firearms on its platform. WooCommerce, Magento, OpenCart, and 3DCart are all open source solutions that you can look at. However, our recommendation is definitely BigCommerce.

    (Bruh! 🤔)
    Can I be honest?
    (Please delete as needed but…)
    I caught your ad on migration and was impressed by your words but had to seek you out to give you a Lil ish about your appearance and putting your best face forward, your 3 day stubble etc. With that, I fell into this video☝️.
    Of course it is very well spoken, it caught my interest, I randomly learned some things, and it reminded me to not judge a book by its cover. But again,
    From thumbnail appearances alone, I was clicking past it.
    It was the subject of transferring platforms that got my click as I never saw a video on the subject. And so on…
    Please allow me to say… THIS VIDEO RIGHT HERE? ☝️🤔
    Spun my head, made me look deeper, earned you a like, a sub, a student and this dumbass comment.
