HEALDSBURG, CA – October 29, 2009 (For Immediate Release)

“GUNPAL, Inc. (https://www.gunpal.net/) is a transaction-neutral online payments platform with a philanthropic spirit,” announces Founder/CEO Ben Cannon. "It is also the first serious competitor for PayPal Inc."

A percentage of each transaction is donated to a selected charity at no additional cost to the user. The initial list of organizations includes the American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, and the Supercomputing Disease Research Center. Users can also suggest charities for consideration.

An avid supporter of constitutional rights, Cannon created a discrimination-free online payments application, starting with the recognition of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Prohibited by PayPal's "Acceptable Use Policy", the $3 billion firearms and accessories industry has adopted GUNPAL as the payments platform of choice. “Firearms can only be sold by licensed dealers. GUNPAL is more convenient than other forms of payment as its comprehensive transaction tracking system is secure and reliable for our audits,” says Mitchel Chapman of WBtactical.com, a licensed firearms dealer.

An estimated one hundred million firearm owners nationwide now have a platform with which they can trade ammunition, scopes, and other accessories securely and hassle-free. As a socially responsible company, GUNPAL directs its firearm buyers to government documentation on current firearm laws and regulations and will provide licensed dealer listings by buyers' zip codes in a future release. Having dominated the firearms niche, GUNPAL is already targeting other under-served markets with several new projects under way.

With every line of code written in-house, most of the engineering effort has been dedicated to fraud prevention. GUNPAL’s unique anti-fraud and anti-phishing systems take a finer-toothed comb through customer data for maximum privacy and security. Reduced fraud cuts operating costs resulting in lower fees for most common transactions as compared to PAYPAL. Cannon's first company, GeoVario, LLC, was the natural choice for web-hosting services.

Founded in 2004, GUNPAL is a transaction-neutral online payment system that allows easy transfer of funds to anyone with an email address. Privately funded, GUNPAL has revolutionized the transfer of money with its pro-constitutional voice, unique anti-fraud approach, and philanthropic spirit. The company is expected to expand its services internationally in the near future.

I'm doing it right. Is there an issue?

OK, got it. FYI, GUNPAL does not like the 1st security question to be "middle name of your oldest sibling" :D

It wouldn't work till I changed the question

Actually..I'm noticing I get the problem when I hit the "Enter" key..if you click the next button or whatever with the mouse it works. I received another error like that when I went to confirm the account after I received the sign up error. Just use the mouse to proceed to the next screen.

I believe you can use it just like PayPal.

So a buddy of mine has a site with material that PP classifies as porn. He wants to be able to take donation on his site, but PP won't let him use his PP account to collect them. Can he use GunPal for this purpose?

According to the homepage, it can be used for anything legal, that is the way I understood it, though I could be wrong

oldrifle
10-28-2009, 9:49 PM
Ah, yes. Thanks.

Personally I would have called it something like "FreePay" (something less gun-related) in order to appeal to a broader user base and compete more directly with PP for market share.

You can use GUNPAL to pay anyone for any (lawful, subject to restrictions, and see our AUP blah blah.) purpose :)

Bank Accounts take 3-5days for the verification deposits to show :( (US banking system is slow)

True, it's much easier to be a big fish in a small pond competing for the smaller chunk of the market rather than trying to take on a monster like PP as a little fish.

When have you known me to stay in the kid's pool ? :D

Most of what makes us unique early on though, is the gun aspect. And we will remain true to that.

While using the site I found 1 low severity defect and 1 medium severity. Submitted a bug with steps to reproduce, actual and expected results.

hey ben,

i plan on using GUNPAL as much as possible for personal use, but as stated before, i sure wish you chose a more universal name. i run an online store and i get a whole lot of paypal payments and would LOVE to switchover. problem is, 99.99% of my customers are women and, quite frankly, my customer base would feel uneasy about the payment method as well as my store in general, if i suggested paying via "GUN"pal.

if you ever decide to change the name or expand your market, please make the announcement, and i'll switch. till then, i'll make sure all my personal stuff is via GUNPAL.

How would gunpal handle a situation like this:

About 2 weeks ago I attempted to purchase a stock from a guy on craigslist. I am in Sacramento, CA and the seller was in San Jose. I was planning on building my first 10/22 conversion with the help of JagerTroop. Well after negotiating the price, researching shipping, then sending the payment, the guy decided to rip me off. He said that he has everything ready to ship and as soon as payment was received, it would be on its way. So, I sent payment via paypal... and never heard from him again. He just took my money and ignored all future emails. I sent the money through paypal, which I thought protected me, so I filed a dispute. After looking into it a little harder, I dont know if that will result in anything.

I've got the guys name, email address, and a home address (not sure if it's current) but I'm working on getting more information. I am soo freakin heated. He took me for $220. I even have a picture of the 21 year old little bastard that he sent me on accident. I guess my next step is to contact the San Jose police...

Is there any protection from a situation like that?

We'd ask for tracking numbers or other evidence that he shipped you a product. When he could not produce those, we'd reverse the transaction in your favor.

I agree, I love the idea but the brand is less than desirable with the word "Gun" in it. Would have been nice to brand it around the word "Freedom" or something. Nobody can argue that freedom is bad. I will sign up and encourage others to do so as well. I wish you luck.

Nice, but (and I'm just enquiring) if you aren't a seller, is there any point in signing up unless and until you want to pay someone who does, or might, accept GunPal? Does another (dormant) user boost the ratings or anything?

I'll join if it helps, but don't see any likely use in the immediate future, unless and until people like Cabelas, Natchez and Midway come on board.

I also hear what people are saying about the name. Might put off the wider use of the service and restrict it to gun related items. Perhaps this is OK with Ben. On the other hand, we could maybe make a point by using it to make a ten cent donation to the Brady bunch :D

I also wanted to show off that I'm not some nuckledraggin redneck and can do kewl tech stuff. But, I can't figure out how to make a listing that A: doesn't have a PP requirement and B: Has a GP option. How about a tutorial at http://www.gunpal.net/ebay ???

Since there is a 35 cent fee associated with each transaction, that would end up costing them 25 cents for each 10 cent donation.

As for eBay - they apparently only allow certain electronic pay services and Gunpal is not on the list.

There have been a few other Paypal clones come and go, and a few that still exist. Paypal is all about eBay. it got its start there, and really, thats where its business is. I doubt you can crack that market to any significant extent, even if eBay allowed it to be used as a payment method. OTOH, even a small chunk makes for a viable product.

However, there is a lot of gun related merchandise sold on the net that can't use Paypal. Conceivably, it could get a big chunk of those transactions.

I doubt Gunpal is going to make any money from the selling of leftover brass to each other off gun boards. But its a handy thing to have.

Some of you may not recall but the original thought behind Paypal had little to do with online auctions at all, and in fact they sort of went into that as a sideline. I am not even sure if in the early publicity about Paypal if online auctions were even a thought.

It seem silly in retrospect but much of the early publicity centered around things like splitting the ticket at lunch, or allowing room mates to split the rent. Remember in the early days Paypal had no fees and they intended to run that way. Of course, reality struck and fees were inevitable.

PayPal is now owned by eBay.

yes, PayPal was originally about person to person payments and then moved to micro-payments when that was the big thing. They would likely have gone the way of CyberCash, Brodia and other e-wallet companies had they not been nimble enough to move heavily into the online auction space early.

oldrifle
10-29-2009, 1:15 PM
That's only partly true. While eBay is affiliated/integrated with a few specific payment gateways, I don't believe there is a problem with accepting any form of payment you choose to through your own checkout process.

Also, from eBay's site:

Checks, money orders, and bank wire transfers aren’t allowed for most eBay purchases.

But sellers can offer these payment methods for certain items in some categories, including Motors, Capital and Business Equipment, Real Estate, and Adult Only.

I believe what this means is, items that aren't appropriate to pay for through one of their payment partners can be paid through other means. Again, I don't think they can prevent you from accepting other payment methods through your own checkout process. However, whether they'll pull auctions which explicitly mention GP as an accepted payment method is another question.

My guess it that since you can't use PP to pay for weapon related items anyway, they would rather keep the fees from the auction and let sellers use GP. Otherwise, they'd just lose out on revenue. It seems like a perfect way for them to have their cake and eat it too... make the money, yet still uphold this "social responsibility" facade they seem to enjoy.

As for eBay - they apparently only allow certain electronic pay services and Gunpal is not on the list.

I didn't see a place where I signed up for designating where donations should go.

Do these have to be 501c3 organizations, or could you designate it for a 501c7 organization (like a local shooting club).

Presently you select a Charity with each transaction (via the Send Money function.)

GP has to approve the organization, any nonprofit may apply.

Some of you may not recall but the original thought behind Paypal had little to do with online auctions at all, and in fact they sort of went into that as a sideline. I am not even sure if in the early publicity about Paypal if online auctions were even a thought.

It seem silly in retrospect but much of the early publicity centered around things like splitting the ticket at lunch, or allowing room mates to split the rent. Remember in the early days Paypal had no fees and they intended to run that way. Of course, reality struck and fees were inevitable.

Sideline, I was one of the very early adopters of PayPal. It's true that they did not have auction payments at the forefront, and in-fact discovered them almost by accident. Their founders' ability to nimbly adapt and take bold risks grew PayPal into what it is today. I like them, I just don't like what they do. :)

Uh, is that year a typo?

Nope. It's been in the works for a loooong time. Since before the OLL days.

Ben, what's gunpals policy regarding transactions that will fall under the UIGEA?

Excellent question. Presently GUNPAL is US-only. Our International expansion is in the planning phases, and I frankly expect the UIGEA to be overturned.

Domestically, UIGEA carries force of law. We are really agents for our users in dealing with the banks, so the same laws apply.

Question - Can Gunpal be used to do wire transfers to off-shore accounts? I'm working on a project to do some import business with an electronics company in South Korea and their payment terms are wire-transfer.

Not at this time. Perhaps someday.

I thought I would write this report of my experience with gunpal and post it as a new topic or as a reply to as many forum discussions as I could find. I became aware of gunpal for the first time yesterday afternoon, Oct 29, on the Yellow forum -

http://www.network54.com/Forum/79537...+there+for+you

If you go there and read the thread you will see I posted that I was willing to be a “test case” with a seller on this airgun forum. I did some quick internet research and was very comfortable with the gunpal company. A small target frame maker, Cal, offered to join the test and away we went. I signed up with gunpal which was very easy and problem free. They donate a small (unknown and would like to know) amount of the sale to a charity or nonprofit you choose when you sign up. The NRA is one of the choices which made me very happy to see. That was my choice. The seller signed up and sent me the amount needed for the purchase. At 5:02 I made payment and almost immediately got an email from gunpal stating money sent with a transaction number and a link to their site. I went to the site and it showed funds sent. Cal received an email shortly after telling him he had money. I further tested the site by doing a support question to them about the checking account verification method and received an email back the last evening with a satisfactory reply. So my first experience went well and I will use gunpal all I can.

I am from kalifornia and found that gunpal may not be available in some states. I see New York is one of the states but know from a post by Ben Cannon, the ceo of gunpal, is working on making it happen there. Ben seems to be a very energetic person and appears to be very involved personally in making this work. I believe from my short time, less than 24 hours, since I found out about this a tremendous groundswell is occurring. It is spreading like wildfire in a high wind. From a Google search yesterday afternoon to one this morning there are many more hits showing posts and discussions about the service. I am sure by Monday it will be a discussion found on many, many forums and blogs.

I am a long time ebay/paypaler, since the late 90’s, and like most have become more and more disgruntled with the whole operation. I hope all reading this will support this new payment method and if you believe in it please try to get the industry suppliers to accept it. This is my opinion and I am not connected to gunpal in any way other that using it as a payment service. Due to the number of forums I will be posting this on I will probably not be able to reply to questions unless pm’ed to me. If you got to the end - Thanks for reading = bill

This is sweet. You really need to get this setup to be able to print shipping labels, if you do i will add this to all the e-*ay listings as an option, i may even provide incentives for using the service.

One thing nice about PP is i get a discount on shipping too, if you could do that too it would be freaking awesome.

I'm curious too, what percentage actually goes to the charity?

Auction numbers are...

260499653616

Stupid Ebay screws up all the formatting so everything reads as a run-on but I am trying to spread the good word.

Ebay won't allow you to hyperlink the GunPal url?
