Boston Bullion Payment Options
Due to the changing value of precious metals on a day by day basis the gold prices shown are an indication only and not the final gold price when ordering.

A Brokerage fee of 0.5% to 3.0% is added to orders depending on quantity but shipping for US orders of 5 ounces gold or more is free.

Boston Bullion will accept credit card orders for orders up to $5,000. but will then charge an additional fee of 3% when using this payment method.

Ordering is a simple matter of phoning and place an order with the consultant and getting the details to pay by bank wire.

It is recommended when you get the bank wire instruction that it is sent in writing, either by post or email rather than accept over the phone so you have a written record.

The price paid for the gold is that price set when the order is placed by phone. The price is then "fixed" and will not change regardless of any subsequent market fluctuations. It is a prudent idea to write down all the details when you make the call including the time and date of the call and the price fixed.

All payments must be postmarked within 24 hours of order confirmation. All orders are shipped registered priority mail, fully insured with a signature required from the recipient.

There are, incidentally, NO sales taxes on out of state orders or Massachusetts bullion purchases larger than $1,000.

It is well worth noting that if payment is not received in a timely fashion (postmarked in 24 hours, received in 5 days), Boston bullion state that the order will be offset with an identical buy. They will "re-buy your items from you at our then current buy price". This means that if the price of the gold or bullion has dropped during the intervening period the person ordering is billed the difference or "will be required to pay any discrepancy from market losses" but "You will not be entitled to any proceeds from market gains." This prevents people abusing the system by buying low and selling high to Boston bullion without actually spending any funds.

Last Word on Boston Bullion
Boston Bullion will also buy gold. Usually at around 3 percent below the spot price at the time of purchase. Coins must be in original mint packaging with no tampering.

Boston Bullion do not offer any storage or finance arrangements.
