Want to Sell Gold Online?

Sell Gold Online

Want to sell gold online? Before you do, there’s a few things you really need to know. Unlike selling gold face to face, the Internet is a potentially riskier place to sell it, and not every website that offers to buy and sell scrap gold is legit.

Still, not every business on the world wide web is a scam either. It’s just a matter of doing your research beforehand.

The first thing that is an definite given is to never sell gold to a website that even looks suspicious. And by suspicious we mean, if there’s no information about the company, then chances are they’re not going to be legit.

Yet, even with information you still may run into problems and that’s where the Better Business Bureau comes in. If the company is listed and it’s positive, then they’re probably a reputable company.

However, just because they’re not listed with the BBB, doesn’t mean they’re a bad company. It just means you’ll need to dig a little further by Googling them or asking around to find out what you can about their services.

Once you’ve done your research and you think you have the ideal company in mind, make sure you make copies of everything you send and photograph everything if possible.

And make sure you’ve insured the package. Taking the extra steps to copy gives you the added security that may just be needed should the company claim they never received your gold items.

One of the easiest ways to sell your gold on the web is through auction sites like Ebay and Amazon. With both you can post your gold jewelry, gold coins, gold bars, bullion, nuggets or whatever items you may have that contain gold.

You can set your own price and payment specifications and you can even include shipping and handling fees to keep your out of pocket expenses down as much as possible.

However, before you set a final bid price, you should always check the price for the precious metal beforehand. Then, take note that prices change on a daily basis, so selling your gold items at auction is fine, just remember that the price of gold does fluctuate.

And then once you’ve set your price for your gold items, by the end of the auction you may find that your profits were far more than you’d anticipated. Both Ebay and Amazon even allow you to check on your bidder’s history if there’s ever a concern.

Just keep in mind however that both auction sites do have seller fees, so you’ll need to keep that in mind when you set your price. Also, remember that not every auction is successful and you’ll still have to pay those seller fees even if you don’t make a sale.

Remember, when you sell gold online, to insure you’re not going to end up getting the shady end of the deal, always do your research, make copies and take any extra steps necessary before you seal the deal.
