Important For All FFL Lightspeed POS Customers

Lightspeed recently announced its anti-firearm policy. The policy prohibits the sale of firearms and related accessories on any of its platforms, including Lightspeed Point of Sale and its e-commerce platform, Lightspeed Retail. In addition to the sale of firearms, Lightspeed's policy also prohibits the sale of firearm parts, ammunition, and other related accessories. Lightspeed believes that firearms have no place in e-commerce, and that allowing the sale of firearms online can lead to dangerous and illegal activities.

It's Customer Use Policy states:

"Firearms. Customer must not be a firearms store, or offer for sale illegal firearms or any parts or components that, when used with a legal firearm, would be illegal."

Because Bravo Point of Sale is an all-in-one software platform, users can run their entire business through one operating system, instead of using multiple systems from multiple vendors. Its centralized platform provides a single source of truth that empowers your front office teams to deepen their relationships with customers and provide a best-in-class experience, and your back office teams to work efficiently without manual or duplicate entry. Bravo was built in-house on one code base, which means you get a unified experience that’s easier for your team to adopt and use.

Bravo's All In One Platform  

Bravo Point of Sale platform was built by in-house developers from the ground up. This means that users have all the features and functionality in one platform. Customers don't need to switch between multiple systems or perform manual work or duplicate entry; ATF violations are mitigated because human error is less likely and blind spots are eliminated because all customer, store, company and transaction data lives in one centralized system.  

One of the greatest benefits of using Bravo’s all in one Point of Sale is that you don’t need to rely on 3rd party integrations or bolt on solutions, and you’re able to work with one company rather than managing multiple vendors. The result is a unified and consistent user experience where data, reporting, and individual tools are all similar and work in concert with each other. Choosing an all-on-one point of sale for your teams to use will not only unite your work and data, but also create a better end-to-end customer experience.

"This software does it all. Bravo automated my ATF log book, saving me 30 minutes daily."

- Sam R., Owner at Sam's Locker & More

"We don’t just sell firearms. We love them. We won’t carry anything we wouldn’t shoot. I chose Bravo because it integrates my e-commerce, inventory control, and employee “to-do list,” which ensures my shop is being run more efficiently."

-Greg F. Owner at American Pawn & Gun
