i have to agree as well, that by not taking credit cards, you would be missing a lot of potential sales. another thing to consider is that many people use dbit cards, that are linked to their banking accounts, so that they can use it just like a credit card and also as to not to have to carry cash.

in the small town i live near, there is one radiator repair shop and he does mainly cash business and doesn't take credit cards. my brother subs his work through his shop because he does take credit cards and just tacks on a small fee to cover his expenses. if another radiator repair shop came into town that did take credit cards, it would probably cut heavily into his business. i now when i take work to him, i have to take cash or a check to pay for it.

You should ask this guy what he thinks.

This company takes cards and is one of the top blackpowder sites. Can you beat their prices and quality enough to get people to do the extra work to order from you instead?

If I may ask why would you not be interested in taking cards ? There are many companies out there and it's very easy to set up. Zen cart web sites are very affordable to set up and offer integration with most secure cc processors. You would need a highly sought after product that was available nowhere else to get a business off the ground with only one pain in the ass payment option IMO

For credit cards all you need is an iPhone and a free adapter...

I also would not shop if I couldn't order online with my card. I HATE going to the PO for Money orders. Just put a lower limit on how much they must spend on their card, and add on some of the fee to make it worth your while. So, just how much is it to set up the whole shebang site, anyway?

I use Godaddy for my website. I am pleased with my website and taking credit cards has helped make it easier selling things on Gunbroker auction site. Just do not pay for a search engine optimization for your website (those companies will charge you hundreds of dollars a month if you let them).

And do absolutely nothing to get your website in the top 10 on the search engines.

The only way I will buy a new gun is by credit card. Guns are one of the few things you can't return to the place of purchase if it is defective. I am going to have an advocate in the consumer protection provided by my credit card.

My main LGS does cash discounts. I also like as little as possible of a paper trail when buying weapons.
