Scottsdale, AZ – March 11, 2019: Gearfire, the leading shooting sports eCommerce platform announces a new company milestone, now serving over 2,000 retail customers.

The platform enables retailers to augment their current revenue stream by adding a near plug-and-play eCommerce function which provides simplified search, pricing and ordering of products.
“We are honored to serve each and every one of our 2,000 shooting sports retail customers,” said Chad Seaverns, COO of Gearfire. “A core focus of our business model has been enabling retailers with easy access to an omni-channel solution. Recently, we combined forces with our sister companies at the Retail Technology Group, Gearfire Payments (GFP) and Orchid Advisors to enable an end-to-end solution. The adoption rate of new retailers to our platform has been attributed to new eCommerce functionality, direct integration with the AXIS Point of Sale system, GFP’s firearm friendly merchant processing and firearm regulatory solutions from Orchid.”
