understanding gold dealer listings and reviews

  1. User Rating: This is an average rating based on all customer reviews submitted on a company’s listing, running from 1-5 stars.
  2. Top Rated: We only award this badge to companies we consider to be the best in their particular market, based on user reviews, our experiences in dealing with the company and the findings of our team of mystery shoppers.
  3. Highly Recommended: We award this badge to companies we consider to be among the best, based on user reviews, our experiences in dealing with the company and those of our team of mystery shoppers.
  4. No Badge? Just because a listing has no badge doesn’t mean we don’t think they’re good. They can still be excellent, as can be seen by customer ratings and reviews.
  5. No Picture, No Rating, No Badge? This simply means a company has a basic listing with no upgrades and has not been mystery shopped or reviewed by us or any customers (yet). Most companies in Bullion.Directory make use of our basic free listings, so don’t consider this to be a bad thing!

With one-click star ratings and allowance for detailed user reviews on all listings, you can rapidly find precious metals companies with the best levels of customer care.

Unlike many review sites popping up across the web, we have no financial incentive to recommend company X over Y. All our ratings and reviews are provided by consumers like you, with safeguards in place to protect against false reviews, both good and bad.

It takes seconds – and helps dealers with the best standards help more customers.

Why the need for a specialist bullion dealers directory?

Precious metals are big business. With more and more investors using gold to protect their assets or retirement plan from bank bail-ins, stock crashes or dollar devaluation – more and more gold dealers are appearing to satisfy demand.

But how do investors find suitable bullion dealers? Where do you go?

Chances are pretty high it will be a search engine – or one of the big general directories.

Unfortunately search engine’s top results are usually filled by companies with the deepest pockets – those who can pay the huge costs of ad clicks – or those with the resources to game the search engines. And guess where those deep pockets get their money?

Many of the big directories use out of date addresses and contact details – or as is sadly common, they wrongly categorize companies as bullion dealers when they’re simply not.

Our listings are free, added by hand and we only list precious metals dealers.

Our top positions are based on positive consumer reviews and ratings, not advertising budget.
