Lock-In Low Fees & Next-Day Funding

Many banks and merchant services shy away from firearms-related business types. Others label them as “high-risk” to justify a higher rate than what other merchants would pay. Fortis is different. We harness our expertise in Pawn and FFL merchant businesses to extend flat-rate pricing and low fees to specialty retailers. We offer the same low rates to FFL industries that we offer in any other industry and next-day funding at no extra cost. No hassle, no mark-up, and no hidden fees—even for Class 3/Title II sales.
