HARTFORD, CT (January 12, 2023) – The leader in FFL technology, payment processing, and firearm and explosives compliance services, Orchid and AmmoReady, the leading provider of firearm ecommerce services, is pleased to announce their live integration. The combined solution provides gun store owners with a full omnichannel platform to manage and grow their retail FFL operations.
“Together, our combined customer base sells well in excess of $100 million of firearm, ammunition and accessory inventory,” said Orchid VP of Sales and Implementation, Shaun Phelan. “We’re excited to offer those FFLs and the broader retail market with a simplified two-company ecosystem that includes distributor inventory, online ecommerce, in-store POS, ATF A&D Bound Book/e4473, and digital storage options. The entire platform is supported by Orchid Pay™ – one of the few firearm-friendly payment processors solely dedicated to our industry.”
Unlike other offerings, the Orchid-AmmoReady integration doesn’t burden the customer shopping experience with required third-party advertisements. Instead, AmmoReady users get an ad-free, SEO optimized, and customizable website and web store that expands sales beyond your local area. Customers also have access to on-hand inventory and distributor catalogs from Bill Hicks & Co, Davidson’s, MGE Wholesale, RSR Group, Sports South, Sportsman’s Supply, Zanders and others, enabling FFLs to meet the needs of a wider group of customers and be better prepared for shifts in demand. These enhancements only add to existing Orchid POS™ features, including gunsmith work orders, trade-ins and consignment, gift cards, loyalty programs, special orders, recurring billing, multi-store dynamic reporting, Avalara and shipping integrations, and more.
“Integrating with Orchid allows us to deliver an effective integrated POS and ecommerce solution fit for any budget and business model,” said Paul Angell, AmmoReady CEO. “The Orchid team has expanded well beyond basic POS integration to include in-store replenishment, POS-driven special orders, fulfillment monitoring, and more. The combined solution of AmmoReady and Orchid POS™ is a great addition to our growing list of partners and a leading solution for retailers wanting to elevate their FFL to the next level.”
To celebrate the new integration, Orchid and AmmoReady are offering a joint SHOT Show promotion for new customers. FFLs who purchase Orchid’s Retail Enterprise plan featuring Orchid POS™ and Orchid eBound™ will receive the first six (6) months free – a $2,000 savings – and be entered into Orchid’s $9,000 Giveaway toward software and implementation. Plus, customers will receive 50% off AmmoReady installation fees and their first 30 days free.
