How Do I Add or Validate a Bank Account?

(last updated on 4/27/2011)

Adding and Validating Bank Accounts

GunBroker.com allows you to place a bank account on file so that you can use it to pay for your transactions with GunBroker.com. You cannot use this account to make a payment for merchandise that you have won or bought. You must make payment arrangements directly with the seller of the item for merchandise that you have purchased.

How do I Add an Account?

You can go to the My GunBroker > Billing Information page and Add a Bank Account in the Bank Information section. We use a temporary deposit to verify ownership of your account.

Here's how it works:

Step 1: Enter your account information and then within three business days, GunBroker.com will make a deposit for less than $1 into your account. The money deposited is from GunBroker.com. We then remove the deposit from your account immediately so your account balance is unaffected.

Step 2: You will confirm the amount deposited into your account. The deposit description will be "VALIDATECR". Write the amount down - you will need it to validate the account.

Step 3: Enter the deposit amount on the Account Validation page. Account ownership is immediately verified, your account is validated and the process is complete.
