Payment Options & Policies

At Lights & Holsters Tactical Store, we take great measures to ensure that all online transactions are safe and secure. All payment methods are conducted through Secure Socket Layers (SSL) and our website is PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard) and PA-DSS (Payment Application - Data Security Standard) compliant. We do not store customer credit card information. Below you can find details on all available payment options. Additionally, you can find information on our Privacy Policy by clicking here.

Major Credit/Debit Cards - Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover

We are happy to accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, & Discover. All credit card transactions take place over an encrypted secure server (https:). In fact, when you pay with credit card, we only see the last 4 digits of your credit card number. Your information is not stored by us and it is not shared with any other parties.

Please note that in order to prevent fraud, we only accept credit cards with a U.S.-based billing address and we only ship within the United States. We may, at times, feel that it is necessary to verify order details direct with the customer over the telephone or via other methods to ensure a safe, secure transaction. In those instances, we will make every effort to conduct our verification quickly to keep any shipping delays to an absolute minimum.

Payments will appear on your statement as "Lights & Holsters".

PayPal Online Payments

PayPal Logo

Many customers find PayPal to be a very convenient and secure method to pay for their online purchases and we happily accept. When paying by PayPal, it is important to note that they have very specific policies that we must follow and cannot be flexible with. We only ship to "Confirmed" Addresses and accounts must have "Verified" status. If your payment arrives and the Confirmed/Verified statuses are not present, we will refund your payment and ask that you rectify the issue and resend payment or use another payment option. If you pay with a PayPal "eCheck" and not a PayPal "Instant Payment", we must wait for the "eCheck" to clear prior to shipping.

PayPal restricts the use of their service for some gun-related items. However, most of the items we offer for sale are perfectly ok to pay for with PayPal. If there is an issue with your PayPal payment we will notify you immediately.

PayPal payments of $250 or more must be shipped with Signature Confirmation, no exceptions. If you know that you will not be available to sign for the package(s), please choose another payment option.  

Fast Checkout Through Google

We gladly accept Personal Checks, Certified Checks, & Money Orders. We reserve the right to wait 10 business days for all checks to clear prior to fulfilling orders.
