GunTab Checkout

Sell more by making it easy for buyers to pay safely.

Should I use Checkout?

Are you listing items for sale on GunBroker, ArmsList, or some other marketplace? You should be using GunTab Checkout.

Buyers are far more likely to buy when they feel the transaction is safe. GunTab offers the only safe payments for guns and ammo online. That is why GunTab Checkout tends to increase your marketplace sales.

What will buyers see?

Buyers will see a "Pay with GunTab" button or link on your marketplace listings, like this one:

How do I add Checkout to my listing?

To add Checkout to your marketplace listing, copy-paste one of your HTML snippets below into your listing's item description.

You must copy-paste your HTML snippets exactly as shown. Marketplaces are sensitive about third-party links, and will strip them from your item description if you use an incorrect format.

1. Copy your HTML snippet below

First, please sign in to view your HTML snippets. In the "Marketplace" column below, find the marketplace you are using. In that row, on the right side, click the button to copy your HTML snippet. The button looks like this: Copy to clipboard example

2. Paste your HTML snippet into your listing

Go to your marketplace listing. Click to edit the "item description" (or equivalent). Click at the end of the text (or wherever you want the HTML snippet to appear). Paste your HTML snippet.

Tip: After you save the change to your item description, check how your listing looks to the public. Make sure your HTML snippet appears as you want.

Frequently asked questions

  • What if the Button is not displaying correctly on my listing?
    Try the Link, URL, or Formatted URL instead. Each of these snippets is simpler than the last The simpler the snippet, the more likely it is to be displayed correctly.
  • How can I test a Button/Link/URL to make sure it is working?
    Simply sign in to your GunTab account and click any Button/Link you've added to a listing. GunTab will show you the results of your "Checkout test", including troubleshooting tips if you might need.
  • What do Buyers see if they click a Button/Link/URL?
    Try it and see! (Just make sure you're not signed in to your GunTab account or you'll see the results of the "Checkout test" described above.) First, the buyer will be asked to copy-paste the listing's webpage URL if their browser blocks GunTab from determining it automatically. Second, the buyer will be asked to enter the shipping amount if GunTab is unable to determine it automatically (or if you advertise multiple flat rate options in your listing). Third, the buyer will be asked to confirm the details, select a firearm dealer (if necessary) or a shipping address, and enter payment information.
  • What if I put a Button/Link/URL on a non-compatible marketplace listing?
    GunTab won't be able to determine the details of your listing, so buyers will be invited to send you a "payment offer". If Checkout is not compatible with your preferred marketplace, you can manually send shareable links to buyers instead.
  • Can I use Checkout on my retail (non-marketplace) website?
    No, retail websites should use the appropriate GunTab plugin, like our WooCommerce plugin. If there is no suitable plugin, you can send payment requests or ask your buyers to send you payment offers.
  • Who pays the GunTab service fee for a Checkout transaction?
    By default, the seller pays the fee. You can customize who pays the service fee by selecting Account > Checkout preferences, then changing "Checkout service fee paid by".
