Puyallup, WA, USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Shopify, a commonly used eCommerce platform, notified ‘The Marksman’ a Washington State indoor gun range and retail shop, that they will no longer support their eCommerce website ‘themarksman.net’. The new acceptable use policy (AUP), adopted by Shopify, no longer allows the sale of legal products sold by the Marksman.
The Marksman has been in business for over 38 years and has always enjoyed great community support by the public and Law Enforcement. We provide a safe place for our community to shoot and learn about safe firearms handling. Over the years we have educated, literally, thousands of people on how to safely handle and use firearms. With a database of over 60,000 members we consider ourselves the quintessential home town gun store.
When we entered into our relationship with Shopify they expressed no concern about the products we sell. We have spent thousands of dollars building and maintaining our ecommerce presence, as well as contributing to Shopify’s income. It is unacceptable to us that they now decided that they don’t like guns and therefore will proceed to terminate their relationship with The Marksman and many other firearms related companies.
As we are exploring our legal options, we are also reaching out to establish a new ecommerce partnership. We hope to minimize the inconvenience to our law abiding loyal customers.
Mike Grabowski for The Marksman
