We help the shooting sports industry profitably manufacture, distribute and sell products with great efficiency and utmost compliance.
Orchid Solutions is the second generation merchant processing company from its founder and CEO, Jon Rydberg. Orchid Solutions was created to serve this industry, exclusively, providing simplified and affordable merchant processing solutions that would mitigate risks faced by firearm merchants.
In 2018 Mr. Rydberg formed Outdoor Payment Solutions (“OPS”, dba Gearfire Payments). He launched the company to operate in conjunction with the Retail Technology Group and Gearfire where he served as the CEO and strategy executive. Under his tenure, OPS became one of the largest firearm payment processing companies, servicing 1,500 in-store and online merchants. Mr. Rydberg and his team have and continue to provide payment processing services to some of the industry’s largest retailers including Bill’s Gun Shop, Adventure Outdoors, and Poway Weapons and Range.
In April of this year, Mr. Rydberg started the process to divest of OPS while re-creating its firearm merchant processing business under the Orchid-branded family of companies, along-side Orchid Advisors LLC and partner firm, FFL Law.
Orchid Solutions LLC has launched as a re-creation of the original OPS entity, maintaining relationships with its world-wide processor Global (“TSYS”) while improving both the organization’s cost structure and its merchant customer rate structure.
Today, Orchid Solutions is the owner of Orchid PayTM and Orchid Gun Shop POSTM, solutions designed to bring excellent firearm payment processing and retail software to the shooting sports industry.
