Helping answer questions about our marketplaces
This decision stems from personal experience of buying jewelry online and not being happy with the disparity between online photos and the goods delivered.
Put simply, the answer is trust in the marketplace.
With both our marketplaces, only registered businesses can list on them.
This is to ensure trust in the sellers on the marketplace and the products they are selling.
Gold-buying businesses have experience in handling gold, and an important part of their job is to verify that the gold is authentic. If they cannot do this, they won't be in business long!
They often have expensive x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysers which use x-rays to determine the chemical composition of the product they are purchasing. Popular brands include the Thermo Fisher Scientific Niton series and OLYMPUS GoldXpert.
Trust the expertise of gold-buying businesses to ensure that the product is authentic.
In many jurisdictions, gold-buying businesses require a second-hand dealers license.
This often requires:
Don't risk buying stolen goods!
Some gold-buying businesses may already use generic marketplaces and/or have their own website advertising stock.
Here are some reasons why you should also consider listing on our marketplaces:
Listing the same item on multiple marketplaces increases your chances of making a sale.
Your listings are often lost in an ocean of choice.
The quality of other listings may be poor, which may put potential customers off searching too hard to find your listings.
Creating and maintaining a modern website is difficult and expensive.
By giving us the opportunity to help you sell your stock on our marketplaces, we are in turn enabling you to have more time to focus on your business.
As an aggregator, we will likely benefit from scale to ensure that we get more web traffic and access to potential customers than any individual business website.
We focus on used jewelry and will therefore likely have a very specific target audience coming to our website.
Our marketplace will have tailored features useful for buyers and sellers of used jewelry.
If you have any issues, we can offer support and rectify your problems quickly and efficiently.
