How It Works - With Express Return Envelope
  1. Search for your old, unwanted jewellery, coins, bars, scrap gold, scrap silver or scrap platinum. We will accept pretty much anything that consists of real (not plated) gold (8k - 24k), silver (800-999) or platinum (800-999) as well as a variety of gold and silver coins. However, we do not accept 'gold plated' items, so please do not ship jewellery that contains the following markings: GE or GF - Gold Filled; RGP - Rolled Gold Plate; HGE - Heavy Gold Plate; GS - Gold Shell; GP - Gold Plate; EPNS - Electroplated Nickel Silver.
    Please note: We also do not buy gemstones, so they are not included into the weight of your items. We recommend to remove them prior to shipping if you want to keep them.
  2. Sort your material by precious metals gold content (e.g. put all pieces of 14k jewellery together in one bag and all pieces of 18k jewellery into another bag).
  3. Weigh the different kinds of jewellery (e.g. all 14k pieces together and all 18 k pieces together) on a precision scale (1g resolution or better), note down the weights of each kind (e.g. 32.5 g of 14k gold, 12.2 g of 18k gold).
  4. Go to the payment estimator on our homepage. Enter the current gold, silver and platinum prices in the 'Precious metals prices' section on our estimator. We have included a link to kitco there that displays the current gold, silver and platinum prices for your convenience.
    • Enter the quality (karat) and weight of your material into the respective section of the estimator (e.g. "Items containing gold").
    • Enter your contact information under 'Your contact info' in the payment estimator.
    • Select 'please send me an express return envelope' under Shipping options and select what kind of shipping insurance you require. 100$ is the standard insurance that is included in the shipping fee, every additional 100$ insurance will be available at a rate of 1$ / 100$ insurance (e.g. if you wish to insure your shipment for 200$, you'll be charged 15 $ shipping fee + 1$ insurance = 16$ total that will be subtracted from your payout. So lets say if your payout was 974 $ before fees you'll get a cheque for 958$ after shipping and insurance being subtracted).
    • Finally, you'll select your preferred method of payment under 'Payment options'.
      You have 5 choices here:
      • Cheque (no additional fees, you'll get a cheque send to you by mail)
      • Email money transfer (no additional fees, well contact you to obtain your banking information and transfer the money to your bank account electronically)
      • Wire Transfer (40 $ banking fee, we'll contact you to get your banking information and wire the money into your account directly)
      • Paypal (3% paypal fee, we'll transfer the funds into your paypal account.)
      • Fine metal return (5% premium, we will send you a minted bar of the physical metal, the 5% premium being deducted from the metal weight (e.g. if you send us gold jewellery containing 100g of fine gold, we'll return 95g of minted gold bar(s) to you)
    Read our terms and conditions and check the box 'I certify that I am over the age of 21 and agree to the Terms & Conditions'. Then click the submit button.
    You'll get a summary of the data you submitted displayed together with the estimated payout based on the data you provided and you may print this statement and keep it for your records. You can also use your submission number to provide us a feedback through our testimonials section once the transaction is completed to show us and other customers if you were happy with our service.
  5. Wait for us to give you a call back or email you within 24 hours to confirm your information and we'll get your express return envelope on the way. The express return envelope should get delivered to you within 1-4 days depending on the province / area you live in.
  6. Once you receive the envelope, open it up and check its contents. It should contain:
    • Bubble wrap return envelope, labelled and paid for return shipping to P3M Refining
