Expected timeline

  1. Payment processing

    1 business day

    Man buying gun with credit card
    After verifying the buyer's selected gun dealer accepts transfers, GunTab processes the buyer's payment. Banks take 1 business day to process debits.
  2. Shipping

    1-8 days

    Credit card for gun purchase
    After payment processing is complete, GunTab instructs the seller to ship. Shipping time depends on when the seller ships and the shipping service.
  3. Inspection period

    3 days

    Woman at gun store to purchase firearm
    After the shipment is delivered, the buyer has 3 days to inspect the merchandise and, if necessary, file a dispute.
  4. Disbursement

    1-2 business days

    Successful gun sale payment
    After the buyer accepts the purchase, GunTab deposits the funds to the seller's bank account. Banks take 1-2 business days to process credits.

Background checks

We require all firearms (and similarly regulated items) to be shipped to federally-licensed firearm dealers for transfer to the buyer. These dealers perform a federal background check for every transfer. Please search our FFL database to find a dealer in your area.
