About Discount Tiers and the Pricing Chart

Posted by Radzik Hishamuddin Sankara on 15 Apr 2020

Discount tiers are volume discounts, with a twist. The twist is that we add your past purchases to your current order to determine your volume discount.


  • Many existing customers qualify for immediate discounts. Log into the website for automatic price adjustments according to your discount tier.
  • Volume discounts grow from one order to the next. Even small orders can qualify for volume discounts. Great for customer who wish to dollar average through regular buying.
  • Mix & match products. This is possible as discount tiers are based on bullion ounces purchased (1 point = 1 silver ounce) which are common measure across all products and order types.

See How it Works:

  • Add items to the shopping cart, as the shopping cart reaches a discount tier threshold (e.g. 3,000 points) the appropriate discounts will automatically be applied.
  • Log onto the system to have your past purchase points balance added along with the corresponding points in your shoppping cart as below.

The Discount Tier Thresholds:

The system assigns a discount tier based on the ounces of bullion in the shopping cart and the past orders [requires login] ounces (points) according to the following tables:
Each purchased metal counts as:
1 Silver oz = 1 points
1 Gold oz = 10 points
1 Platinum oz = 10 points
To determine your tier:
Tier 1 to 1,499 points
Tier 2 1,500 to 2,999 points
Tier 3 3,000  to 4,999 points
Tier 4 5,000 to 9,999 points
Tier 5 10,000  to > 10,000
