Paying by Mail using Cash or Money Order
Ordering by Mail, paying with Cash or Money Order
Send cash (we prefer cash) or a money order and a note telling us what you want to order, your address, and an email address or phone number and a signed statement affirming you are at least 18 years of age. If you provide an email address, you will receive an email shipping confirmation, just like our regular website orders. We accept US dollars, Swiss Francs, Euros, Canadian Loonies, Chinese Yuan and of course precious metals. Just do an approximate currency conversion - we aren't picky.
Here are some tips on sending cash in the mail:
1) Sending cash is NOT illegal, it's just not recommended by most people because cash lost in the mail is cash lost forever. We like cash because we have received a few counterfeit money orders over the years.
2) Put cash inside of something like a brochure, small book, or magazine. Or use a padded or thick envelope so the cash cannot be detected.
3) Put your correct return address on the envelope so it will be returned to you if something goes wrong. If you want extra certainty, send it by Certified Mail. It's only a few extra bucks, but Certified Mail requires that you go to the Post Office in person.
With these simple, common sense precautions, sending cash in the mail is very safe and reliable.
