On the right-hand side, you have the choice of selecting delivery or storage and adding a coupon code if you have one. Storage is only available for orders over £2,500 so smaller orders will not offer the choice. When everything is correct, click on the green ‘Proceed to checkout’ button.
Now you’re just 1 step away from completing your gold order. If logged in, you should see all your details on the left-hand side. If not, login now. On the right-hand side, you can now select your payment method.
After clicking the agreement to our terms and conditions, you simply click the green ‘place order’ button.
If you choose direct bank transfer, you’ll receive an email with the bank details and an order number for reference. If you selected card payment, then you’ll be taken to a secure Sage Pay portal to enter your card details once you click ‘place order’. You’ll be reassured to know that we use 3d Secure to protect you and your card.
Once your order is placed, you’ll receive an email confirmation with your order number and our bank details if you’re paying by online banking. If you bought more than £10,000 of gold, you’ll also have to email over 2 forms of ID for anti-money laundering purposes.
