Some Selling Gold Tips

Selling Gold Tips

Gold EagleWhen I first began looking for selling gold tips, there honestly wasn’t much to find, and most of the information I did find covered very little on the topic. And because I don’t believe you should have to go through the same ordeal I did, I want to share with you what I’ve learned about selling gold and how to get the most money for your gold items.

1. Don’t sell gold to pawn shops unless you don‘t have any other options, or you‘ve found that they are actually paying top dollar for your gold. Pawnbrokers often offer the lowest price possible because they have a need to make as much of a profit as they can from your valuables when they resell them. Pawn shops should always be a last resort for selling your gold items.

2. When you need to sell gold jewelry, your local jeweler can be a good option just as long as the piece is in very good condition. If however, your jewelry piece is broken or in need of any type of repairs, most jewelry stores may not be interested unless they think they can make a really good profit from it. And if they do have an interest in your damaged jewelry, they won’t give you nearly as much as they would for the pieces that are in good condition.

3. If you want to sell gold coins, a coin dealer can give you a good price on your coins if they’re in good shape. But, before you consider selling gold coins for their gold content, find out if their worth more for their collectible value. Some coins can fetch a higher price for their historical pedigree than for their gold content.

4. When it comes to where to sell gold, don’t forget the internet. Using the internet to sell your gold can be just as profitable as the offline world. One of the most popular online buyers for precious metal are refiners. Online refiners generally host a website that gives you the option to enter your personal information in order for you to get a free kit by mail that let’s you send your gold to sell back to them. Before you go with just any online refiner however, make sure you do your research first.

5. The best way to determine whether or not you’re getting a fair deal is by checking the daily market value price for gold. You can do this by typing in the words, “how to sell gold” and find numerous applications and tools for finding and calculating the price of the precious metal.

6. And don’t forget when you’re considering other options for selling gold online, you can make a profit from your items through auction websites like eBay and classified webpages such as Craigslist to individuals looking to add to their collection. (And be very careful about people you meet through Craigslist.)

With the above selling gold tips and a little research, I hope that you find much success and profit in your journey with selling gold for cash.

Selling Gold Online Tips and Safeguards

Selling Gold Online

Selling gold online is one of the many ways you can make some money from your unwanted gold items. And while it may not be one of the fastest ways, it is one of the easiest for many individuals who want to cash in on the recent gold rush using several resources available on the world wide web.

A great place to start is by using an auction site like Ebay. With Ebay you can auction off coins, jewelry, spoons, gold nuggets and even gold bars. Ebay lets you set your own price and payment specifications as well as shipping and handling fees if you want to.

And one of the biggest advantages of using an online auction site is that once you’ve set your price, you may even discover that your bidders will pay more for your items by the time the auction ends. Just remember that you will need to pay set up fees for the auction itself and even if your item doesn’t sell, you will still need to pay those fees.

Another great resource to sell gold to are businesses who specialize in buying gold by mail. These types of businesses will often send a mailing envelope that contains everything you need to itemize and send your scrap gold items to them. In addition, most will even pay for the shipping and insurance fees for your pieces.

Then, all you need to do is fill out the required information and send it back along with the items. The company will then weigh the gold pieces and send you a check for their value. Just be aware that once you receive the check and cash it, there’s no turning back.

Forums and groups that have an interest in the precious metal are another great way to sell your gold pieces. Most of these types of sites have free membership and will allow you to post to their site as long as it pertains to the subject matter.

Just be sure you are following their guidelines when you post and never spam the members, otherwise you’ll find yourself booted from the site.

Online classifieds can become another way for you to sell gold for cash. Most online classifieds are free to post to. A great example of this is Craigslist.

Craigslist allows you to post an ad for free to any area you choose. However, as with any classified ad, you’ll want to use caution with the information you give out since not every buyer will be legit.

And speaking of legit, when it comes to dealing with any business or individual online, never sell to a website or buyer who seems suspicious. If there’s no information on the company whatsoever, then chances are they’re going to run with your valuables.

And if an individual your dealing with seems pushy or isn’t willing to do things your way, then it’s a very good idea to find another buyer.

Yes, selling gold online can be a lot easier than face to face, but you also need to be willing to take the steps necessary to assure that you don’t get the bad end of the deal either.
