How we rate and score gold dealers in our directory
It’s essential that our handling of gold dealer reviews and ratings remains impartial.
But it’s even more important that the way we rate and score companies in-house is transparent and open.
While we do employ active mystery shoppers, we clearly can’t test the services of each and every one of our 500+ listings.
In cases where we haven’t actively tested a company’s products or services, we score companies against a wide range of points relating to their history, trust, services and quality of available information.
Factors we consider when rating gold dealers include:
- Length of operation and trading history
- Range of products and services or depth of specialization
- Industry recognition, awards and sponsorships
- Website information, such as visible terms of service and legal policies
- Visible pricing, fees and shipping details
- Multiple contact methods including bricks and mortar address
- Sales and marketing materials – quality of content and factual information
- Current Governmental or legal actions and charges
- Past Governmental or legal actions and charges
- Consumer group ratings and complaints
- Red flag listings at online complaints boards
- Other online reviews and ratings
Gold dealer reviews you can trust – unbiased, real and truthful
Where companies have an active affiliate program, we take this into careful consideration when researching a company for directory inclusion – especially when accepting user comments, in case of financial motive.
There are at least five major lawsuits in the US courts at the moment where the content of hundreds of so-called dealer review websites are being called into question.
It is alleged that most search results are bringing up falsified and untrue reviews painting major gold companies in a bad light. This is allegedly being carried out by affiliates in order to promote a handful of companies – companies that are paying the website owners.
But trust is essential when making multiple thousand dollar purchases.
At Bullion.Directory all reviews are added independently by real consumers. We have strict procedures in place to ensure companies cannot be tarnished by reputation attacks, fake reviews or bad-faith comments and our system can quickly spot artificial rating patterns.
This ensures our reviews and ratings give as accurate and true a picture of a company’s standing as possible.
