Doesn’t the charge process through Gunbroker?
There’s a bunch of extra steps involved in online purchases, especially firearms purchases, and on top of that purchases involving third party systems.
The entire process is a lot more complex than you’re making it out to be.
Also, they very likely don’t have your money yet. Online purchases take a while to process. If I charge your card on my store, it takes a few days before the cash makes it to my bank account. That process will take a lot longer if yet another middle man is involved.
And credit card fraud is absolutely killer, which is what they seem to be trying to fight against. Or at least, what they perceive of credit card fraud. When I first launched my online store, I had a poor system in place for fighting against credit card fraud. I lost over $5,000 because of [insert many expletives] using stolen credit cards on my store.
You seem to be spending a lot of time complaining on here when you really should be picking up the phone and giving them a call.
There are a wide variety of 100% reasonable and normal explanations for this issue.
Reach out to them and try to sort it out. They’re people just like you and me - they aren’t maliciously trying to steal from you.
