Why do we charge a $20 processing fee?

Simple… time is money and our margins are small.
On smaller sales (1-4 grams)  we can actually LOSE money because it involves the same amount of work as 5 ounces. But we still wanted to offer a way for people to sell smaller amounts. The $20 processing fee allows us to process smaller sales and not lose money.  It also offsets the administrative tasks costs.  i.e. We have all our gold shipped to a US Postal facility. Someone has to go there to get your gold, inspect it, weigh it, and process your payments. That someone… needs to get paid for their time.
