The shipping and insurance is based off of the weight and value of the package, as well as where it's shipped to. Generally our shopping cart will implement a table for calculating shipping charges with heavier packages costing more. Periodically we have free shipping promotions which we invite you to take advantage of. All shipments are sent fully insured.
Is there sales tax charged on coins?
No, there is no sales tax charged on coins. The only time sales tax is charged is if you are a Florida resident and purchase rounds (these are not considered coins as they are privately minted and not backed by a Government Mint) or bars and the order total is less than $500.
How do you ship?
We generally ship with USPS, but occasionally use Fedex and UPS for larger packages. All packages are sent insured for the full value of your purchase.

I tried placing an order, but I am not sure if it was accepted?
Unless you receive an order confirmation number, your order did not go through. You may want to try placing the order again, or call us if it is during business hours.
I tried placing an order and I now have a pending transaction on my card. Why?
This occurs when the billing and shipping address do not match, or when a transaction has not been pre-approved by your credit card company. When this occurs you will show a pending transaction on your credit card. However, Silver2Me does not have any access to your funds. The credit card company will put the funds back on your card within 48 to 72 hours in accordance with their policies.
What happens if I decide to cancel an order?
Due to the constantly changing market, canceled orders are subject to a 5% restocking fee plus applicable market loss. The customer is not entitled to any market gain in relation to a cancelled order.

How much should I invest into precious metals?
Most professional investment advisers recommend 10-30 percent of your assets be in precious metals. However, if you truly understand what you are investing in and believe it to be the best investment vehicle in terms of returns, safety, liquidity, etc there is no reason not to invest a larger portion into precious metals. We believe now is the time to get into precious metals (actually earlier would have been better but it's too late now). Since we here at Silver2Me believe that silver will outperform gold in the years to come, though gold is too a great investment, we recommend putting a higher percentage of your portfolio in silver.
Do you add a commission fee to your posted prices?
No. The prices you see are the prices you will end up paying. The only addition charges may be shipping and handling.
How do you wrap your packages?
All our packages are carefully and discretely wrapped, without giving any indication as to the contents inside.
Are there risks involved in investing in silver?
All investments involve risk - silver coins and bullion are no exception. The value of bullion is affected by many economic factors, including the current market price of bullion the perceived scarcity of the coins and other factors. Some of these factors include the quality and current demand and general market sentiment.
You should understand why you are investing in silver in the first place, in addition to why kinds of silver are the best for your situation and budget. As the value on the market can go down as well as up in value, investing in silver may not be suitable for everyone. We recommend that you have adequate cash reserves and disposable income before considering serious investment.
Is silver taxable?
Silver2Me does not collect any tax when your order shipped. You should consult your tax advisor for specific taxation advice in your jurisdiction. State taxes may be applicable.
Can you store my silver me?
No. At this time we are only offering sale and delivery of silver.
Do you report my purchase of precious metals to the IRS?
We are 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.
