You state "24 Hour Payment." What do you mean?
We mean that upon arrival of your GoldKit, the processing and issuing of a check will be completed within 24 hours.

And it could take a similar amount of time for our payment check to travel back to you.
How do I know you received my GoldKit?
After about 7 business days from the time you send in your GoldKit, we invite you to phone our Customer Assistance number at 1-800-538-8188 for a status lookup in our computer tracking system. You may also track your shipment using our online tracking system.
How much will you pay for my gold?
The payment we issue for each GoldKit we receive is different, depending upon the contents. To understand how we determine payment amounts, see What We Pay for Gold, In the many years we've been in business, the vast majority of our customers have been happy with their checks. Anyone who's not happy is invited to return our check pursuant to the terms of the GoldKit Terms & Conditions, and we will return the material that was sent to us.*
What if I am not satisfied with your payment amount?
If for any reason you are not happy with our payment for your recycled gold material, you are invited to receive your material back insured* at our expense. We simply ask that you return our check pursuant to the terms of the GoldKit Terms & Conditions.*
I'm still not sure! Can you contact me before issuing my check?
Yes! We would be happy to phone you and describe your pending payment amount for your authorization. We simply ask that you write "Please Call With Quote" on the receipt that is included with your shipment.
What if the GoldKit is too small to hold all of my items?
Many consumers and jewelers have a quantity of scrap gold that is too much to fit inside our GoldKit. If this is your situation, simply call our Customer Assistance number at 1-800-538-8188 and request a Safe-Pak, which is much larger than a GoldKit. You will have to prepay the postage and insurance with a Safe-Pak.
Can I use my own packaging?
Yes. In fact this will speed up the process, because you won't have to wait for our GoldKit. Learn how toship your items without a GoldKit gold pack.
What if I'm not sure something is made of gold?
You can send us any items that look like they are gold. Our staff will determine whether they are actually gold and pay accordingly. If the items are not gold, they will be computed as gold-filled material and yield fractional amounts, which you will also be paid for. Please do not include anything you know is costume or gold plated.
