Why we don't have a shopping cart?
1) We don't use a shopping cart on 23K gold.com because we need to know who is buying our items. Items range from approximately $750.00 to $8000.00 and we must pre-qualify some purchases. There is too much CC fraud to ignore. One bad sale to a fraudulent Credit Card holder would ruin us. So we try to take common sense precautions that have served us well for the past 15 years.
2) The price of gold changes constantly so we need interaction with the customer to confirm the current price. It's more than the gold cost that affects price. The currency exchange rate as far as US Dollar/Thai Baht can significantly affect the per Baht price of our product.
3) When we confirm the price you can easily go to your PayPal account and send the funds (account balance or credit card funds) to our PayPal account at email@example.com. Upon receipt of the payment we will move quickly to lock in the price of gold for that day.
