Is it safe to buy gold online?

Buying gold online for the first time can be quite a daunting prospect. Sending money to somebody you don’t know in good faith that they will send you your gold or silver in return sounds risky on the face of it. That is why we make transparency and customer service our absolute priority at BullionByPost.

Is it safe to buy gold online? It's a valid question, one that is wise to consider when making any purchase online. As with any other items you buy online, it comes down to buying from a reputable website. With something as valuable as gold you should only buy it online from a site you can see is genuine and reputable. Read more about why you should buy gold online from BullionByPost.

Beyond the website and company itself, you should also be assured that the products you are buying are genuine. At BullionByPost, all of our new products come direct from the refiner/mint to ensure their authenticity. In the case of pre-owned items we use our XRF machine and other testing methods to check coins/bars are as expected.

We aim to make the buying process as simple as possible, offering a multitude of guides for new and experienced investors alike on our website. If you'd rather speak to a real person though, our customer service team is on hand to answer any questions you may have and can be called on 0121 634 8060 between 9am and 6pm weekdays, or emailed at
