How GunTab works

It's like PayPal, except we hold the funds until the end

Escrow is the only safe way

GunTab is like PayPal or Venmo because we empower you with easy online payments by credit card and bank account.

But GunTab is fundamentally different because GunTab is escrow. We collect the payment from the buyer at the beginning, then hold it until the buyer has a chance to receive the merchandise. This is how we can double guarantee that buyers are safe from scams and sellers are safe from chargebacks. Nobody else offers this kind of protection.

Transaction steps

Every GunTab transaction follows these basic steps:

  1. Buyer/Seller agreement
  2. Buyer preferences, verification, and payment
  3. Seller shipment
  4. Buyer 3-day inspection period
  5. Seller disbursement
