Frequently asked questions:

1. How is buying precious metals different than buying other things? Precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, etc. are commodities. The prices of the products we sell are based on the prices listed on the commodities markets, and fluctuates in real time much like the stock market. The buying and selling of commodities is also like the buying and selling of stocks in that there are no take backs or returns. When you agree to buy or sell precious metals with AJPM Beaverton you are entering into a contract, and if you fail to hold up your end you are in breach of that contract. We take this very seriously. If you cannot be trusted to follow through on your responsibilities then precious metals trading in general, and AJPM Beaverton in specific are NOT for you.

2. What methods of payment are accepted? We accept cash (in person only $10,000 max), check, money order, and wire transfer ($15,000 or more). We do not accept credit card, debit card, or any type of payment app for in person or phone order transactions.

3. Will there be any tax added to my purchase? No, there is no sales tax in Oregon. The price you see is the price you get.

4. How will my order be shipped, and how long will it take? Typically orders are shipped using USPS registered mail. Registered mail is very secure and allows us to insure your package for its full value. A signature will be required at the delivery address. If no one is home to sign, a note will be left and your order can be picked up at your local post office. Under normal circustances your order will take about as long to get to you, as your check took getting to us.
