What is an SSL?

SSL is short for Secure Socket Layer, and provides a secure connection on the webpage. It is critical when handling sensitive material such as credit card information.

You will need to visit our Support Tickets page. This will bring you to our Ticket System. After you raise a ticket, GunsAmerica is notified and then takes appropriate action.

Editing Live Storefronts

Is anything I do permanent?


How do I edit text?

Start by clicking the pencil icon () next to the name of the page you want to edit (Not all pages allow you to edit text). You will then be directed to an editor page that looks similar to Microsoft Word (and works on the same principles).

If you are having trouble with the editor please feel free to contact us via the Support Ticket System.
