Do you buy all types of coins and bullion?
We buy a majority of the more popular private and government-issued bullion coins and bars, as well as a large variety of collectible coins. For a better idea of what we purchase, the prices we pay, and the ability to sell to us online, please see our Sell to us Page.
How quickly are items verified once they're received?
Most orders are verified the same day they are received. However, during busier times this may take 1-2 business days to occur.
How will you pay out my buyback order?
When you place your order we will contact you about the options to pay out your buyback.
How do I know if I need to report my purchase and/or sale?
BullionMax is not a financial/tax adviser and therefore cannot provide tax advice. We suggest contacting your trusted financial/tax advisor to determine if there are any tax implications of your purchase/sale of Precious Metals.
Are there any other hidden fees for selling to BullionMax?
No, there are no hidden fees for selling your items to us. It's just that simple.
How much is my coin/bar worth?
Pricing will depend entirely, on brand, condition, and availability.
How do I ship my buyback order to you?
Once you create your buyback order, you will receive instructions via email on how to pack and ship your buyback to us.

Can I receive order notifications via SMS text?

Not at this time, but we do plan to add this capability in the near future.

Can I modify my order?

No. Unfortunately, our largely automated system cannot process order modifications if the spot price has changed since the order was placed, and due to constant market fluctuations, it almost always has. Once you’ve placed an order, it is final.

This is a security measure to combat credit card fraud. By shipping to the billing address on file with your credit card company, we prevent scammers with stolen card numbers from fraudulent activity.

If preferred, checks can be sent overnight for faster processing.



Overnight check payments to:
Bank of America Lockbox Services

Payment by bank wire:
BullionMax does accept bank wire payment for any order amount. Any order exceeding $100,000.00 (USD) must  be verified and will be reviewed on a per order basis. Wire payments are processed throughout the business day through 5 p.m. (ET). We may be in receipt of your wire but will only inform you of receipt when it has been applied to the order.

Please note that BullionMax can only process Same-Day bank wires. (Many banks offer Next Day, 2-day and 3-day wires with bank reduced fees, which makes selecting those very appealing.

Why is the price in my cart different now that I’m ready to complete my order?

Precious metals prices change constantly. Once you start the checkout process, your prices are locked for 10 minutes. Simply complete your checkout within ten minutes and you’re all set! If you’ve been shopping for a while and want to know what the price on items on your cart is right now, refresh your cart (press CTRL+R or use your browser’s refresh button) to update to current market pricing. Also, if you changed your payment method, you may lose a payment discount, which will look like a price increase.

ACH/eCheck, bank wire and paper check payments qualify for a "cash discount."

Credit/debit cards, PayPal and cryptocurrency payments do not qualify for this discount.

Do you charge sales tax?

If applicable in your jurisdiction, sales tax will be charged.

Once I’ve placed my order, how long is my price locked in?

For 5 business days.

How long is my spot price locked?

During the checkout process, pricing is locked for 5 minutes. Every 5 minutes after then, pricing updates based on the current spot prices.

Are my prices locked in when I complete my order?

Yes. When you place an order over the telephone or online, we will send you an order confirmation email detailing what you purchased as well as your locked prices.

Do you ship to UPS store locations?

No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.

Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?

No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these states is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.

Can I pick up my package from the carrier?

No. All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

Do I have to sign for my shipment?

Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.

My package seems to be lost. What do I do?

We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.

Can you ship my order to my post office box?

No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 

What if I accepted delivery of a damaged/opened/tampered with package?

If you have already taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

This package looks damaged/opened/tampered with. What do I do?

We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with (because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered). When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection.

I got my order but it was incomplete/wrong. What do I do?

If your order was delivered with no signs of being tampered with, but appears to be incomplete or missing product, please contact us within thirty (30) days of receipt. Please note that notification of issues for tampered packages must be made within two (2) days and any return requests must be submitted within seven (7) days from the shipment date.

When can I expect to receive my order?

Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 

How do you ship my order?

We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. 

How long before you ship my order?

Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order and your specific products.

Do you report my purchase to the IRS?

BullionMax is not required to report our sales transactions to the IRS or any other federal, state or local agencies unless you fall under the Form 8300 requirement.
