Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t I ship credit card orders to anywhere I want?
At PIMBEX, we strive to protect our customers' personal information and simultaneously reduce the risk of credit card fraud. As such, we only ship orders to the billing address that is used to place an order.
How much is shipping?
Orders that total less than $500, before sales tax (if applicable), will be charged a $10.00 shipping fee. All orders over $500, before sales tax (if applicable), include free shipping.
Why are some products listed as presale?
On occasion, we list inventory that is en-route to one of our warehouses. We list them as a presale to allow our customers the opportunity to lock in at current prices. We only have estimated arrival dates of these products, in most instances, making it difficult to provide an exact shipment date. Orders are grouped and in-stock products will be held and shipped together.
How is my package shipped?
PIMBEX contracts with all major carriers and ships all products fully insured. Orders are sent in discreet packaging and require a signature upon delivery. Please ensure that you are available to sign for your package on the expected delivery date. See our Terms of Sales for Delivery Requirments.
I'd like to make a purchase, why am I required to sign up for an account?
Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for our customers to buy and sell precious metals. By creating an account with us, we're able to offer you a user-friendly and efficient buying experience. Now, we understand that creating an account might be inconvenient, but your information is securely stored on PCI-compliant servers and encrypted with a Digicert SSL Extended Validation Certificate. Let your mind rest easy, knowing the most challenging part of the process will be deciding which coins and bars to buy!
Do you collect Sales Tax?
Some states require PIMBEX to collect sales tax on certain items. We collect the appropriate taxes for all orders based on the most up-to-date tax laws in each state. Please contact your local jurisdictions for bullion tax law details.
How will my order be packaged for shipment?
We follow stringent protocols to ensure all orders are securely packaged and shipped in a discreet box for the customer’s protection.
Where do you ship?
PIMBEX only accepts and ships orders in the 48 contiguous states (excl. Minnesota). No shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Minnesota, or International.
I live in Minnesota, why can't I purchase from PIMBEX?
Due to Minnesota State law HF-157, we cannot process orders for customers in the State. We are working diligently to overcome this hurdle and register with the Minnesota Department of Commerce. We look forward to the day we can provide you with all your precious metals needs.
What is your return policy?
Please see our Terms of Sale.
Can you ship my order to a post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a P.O.Box. All packages must be sent to the customer’s billing address and require a signature upon delivery.

Are there any risks associated with investing in physical precious metals?
All personal investments are subject to market volatility, and precious metals are no exception. The fluctuations of spot price in the metals market directly affect the resale value of your bullion holdings. In addition, the bullion market is littered with counterfeit merchandise and fakes. PIMBEX contracts exclusively with US Mint Authorized Purchasers and guarantees the products you receive are genuine. Secondary market products purchased back from customers are tested in-house to verify authenticity.
