**February/March 2018** Group order from GoldSilver.be

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone - Welcome to the FEBRUARY/MARCH 2018 Group Order from

https://goldsilver.be/en/

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT JOINING THIS ORDER.

Also, if you are interested in joining this order please "follow" this thread so as and when I have updates I can more easily share them. 

Disclaimer

Joining this group order is at your own risk. Please make sure you read the following carefully. I (Backyard Bullion) cannot take financial responsibility for lost/damaged items that are part of this order. By joining this group order you agree to this. 

What is the group order all about?

This group order is a way to combine shipping costs for buying silver from Europe. We pay drastically less for our silver because we essentially do not pay VAT. I organise these orders so that people can get cheap silver but also so that I can unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel. It helps grow my social media, my BYB brand and my reputation within the community.

Last month we used The European Mint. The order was a resounding success and we will no doubt be using them again in the future. However, https://goldsilver.be/en/ have got an unrivalled selection of bullion coins and have also been playing some price wars with their competition and are now have pretty much the cheapest silver in Europe. 

It is important to note the above disclaimer and re-iterate it again. I cannot be held responsible if items are lost/damaged when arriving from GS.be to me. I will try my best to resolve any issues but I cannot be held financially responsible. Joining this group order is at your own risk. 

How will the order work?

The way this works is simple. You will decide what you want by looking at their website https://goldsilver.be/en/ and send me a shopping list of what you want (preferably with hyperlinks to each item!).

I will send you a screen dump of the basket and total on their website and then I will send you another screen dump from www.transferwise.com showing the conversion and total in £.

You then send this via PayPal F&F or Banks transfer and as soon as I get the funds I will pull the trigger with https://goldsilver.be/en/ . Your order is then locked in and confirmed, you cannot cancel after this stage. 

When to order and pay Backyard Bullion?

I will only be placing orders on the weekends. I will not be able to place orders mid week unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is simply because I am a busy person and organising and keeping track of these orders is difficult. Feel free to send me your shopping lists during the week but understand that I will not be able to lock it in until the weekend - this is just the way it has to be so be aware that prices may fluctuate in the run up to the weekend. I would rather do it like this than potentially forget or miss recording orders and making mistakes. 

Deadlines & Timelines for this order

The order will close on Sunday 18th March 2018 @ 8pm UK Time You will need to have got funds to me by then if you would like to order anything. Please note that this order is going to be dependant on certain items being available for shipping from GS.be to me, namely the new 2 oz QB Bulls. Should there be any delays in this it will mean the group order will be delayed. 

It is therefore likely that you will not receive your coins before the end of March at the earliest. 

Shipping costs & Share of international postage. 

For orders from https://goldsilver.be/en/  up to the value of €5000 shipping costs €18 and over €5000 free. If the order is less than €5000 then we will share the international shipping costs as a % of value. If it is over €5000, then there is nothing to split. 

How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion?

You will have to pay for onwards postage and packaging from me to you. We will sort out the onwards postage and packaging once the order has been completed. Onwards shipping is at your choice and risk via Royal Mail. It is at this stage that we will sort out the share of international postage (if any applies). 

Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz). 

If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options.  

Is it worth it to join?

Yes - https://goldsilver.be/en/ is cheaper by quite some margin than the other bullion dealers. Some of their coins may be more expensive (the more collectable type coins) but certainly not by much. 

Another reason to join the more you buy the cheaper it gets for everybody! 

Does Backyard Bullion charge for this service?

I do not charge for you to join this group order. But I do ask for an optional "service charge" in the form of a tip, the suggested amount is £1 per person. I will not be offended or angry if you choose not to pay the "tip" - but bear in mind that proceeds from the tip help feed Mrs BYB a slap up curry as a thank you for helping to package up all of your orders! ;)

The main benefit for me is to be able to unbox a large quantity of silver for my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/backyardbullion which helps grow my channel, brand and reputation. 

What happens in the event of an issue with delivery?

As I said in the disclaimer at the top of this thread, I cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. GS.be insure their parcels but I have never had to put a claim in and I do not know how likely it might be that something is refunded should it go missing in transit. There is an intrinsic risk in ordering from GS.be who use less than ideal shipping providers. Please bear this in mind before joining the order. 

Have you got any questions?

If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM. 

In the meantime - get me your shopping lists!

How come you are selling in March only to buy again in April?

I have a lifetime ISA, if I sell my stack I will reach £4000 saved which means on the tax year I will get a 25% bonus on my savings (max savings per tax year is £4k) so I get £1000 bonus, then I will buy gold again (and some silver)

If the money from the stack goes into the ISA & you withdraw you lose the 25% bonus?

It costs to withdraw from the Lifetime ISA unless you retire or buy your first home then there's no withdrawal fee, I will be buying my first home with it, would be good to have no fee but most people would just abuse for the free £1000 :P anyway next order I might buy a few tubes of 1oz coins as they are so cheap compared to dealers over here.

@BackyardBullion I noticed now that goldsilver.be have a pound option on the site so do they now have a UK bank to pay into ? So to save on transfer wise ?

I don't think so - just a reference filter I think, or maybe if you pay by credit card.

Oh those damn delivery costs :((

Don't forget that the insurance level is limited to £50 outside the UK. If you order directly, it's 18€ and fully insured. Maybe you can set up an Austrian group order?
