An agreement is entered into by the customer verbally accepting GoldBuyers price quote for the items or by the customer indicating that he or she would like to go ahead selling the items.
When presented with items that a customer considers to sell, BullionStar quotes the customer a price that the customer can choose to accept or decline. If the customer chooses to accept the quote offered by GoldBuyers, the ownership of the items sold by the customer is transferred directly without any cancellation rights to BullionStar.
BullionStar reserves the right to decline purchasing any items for any reason.
The prices listed on the company’s website, in valuation tools online and in the company’s marketing material are of indicative nature only. A price quoted by BullionStar is only valid for acceptance in direct connection to the quote. If the customer does not accept the quote immediately, the quote becomes invalid.
The customer must be 18 years of age or older to enter into an agreement with BullionStar. The customer must furthermore be the rightful legal owner of the items and have the right to freely sell the items.

An agreement is entered into first when a customer accepts BullionStar's quote for the items to be sold. BullionStar assumes no liability for any items before they are sold to BullionStar and in BullionStar's possession. The agreement is only binding for BullionStar provided that the metal, weight and purity/karat are correctly specified as stipulated in § 7.
BullionStar holds no responsibility for information published by others than BullionStar. The information on BullionStar’s website is only informative in nature and does not constitute a binding offer.
A price is quoted to the customer based on BullionStar’s valuation of the items presented. The price depends on the precious metal spot price, weight, purity/karat and in some instances on the condition or characteristics of the items presented.
By handing over item/s to BullionStar for testing, the customer acknowledges that BullionStar has the right to disassemble, split, scrape or in any other way adjust the form of the items necessary to test the metals. The customer furthermore acknowledges that BullionStar has the right to use X-Ray equipment, electronic test devices, spectrometers and chemical testing solutions on the item/s.

The best price guarantee is valid when the customer can prove in written form that he/she has been offered a better price, compared to the price quoted by BullionStar, by a Singaporean company buying gold within seven days of selling the items to BullionStar. The offer by the competing company must be verifiable. Campaign prices are not valid for the comparison. Quotes for pawning items are not valid for the price guarantee as pawning does not constitute a sales order. BullionStar reserves the right to, instead of offering the customer the price difference, cancel the order by the customer returning any paid funds to BullionStar and BullionStar returning the items to the customer.
The customer can choose whether to get paid in cash, by cheque or by bank transfer. BullionStar reserves the right to pay to a bank account in specific circumstances.

If a payment is delayed more than one business day, it is BullionStar’s intention to communicate to the customer when the payment is estimated to be initiated.
The customer is responsible for supplying BullionStar with the correct bank account details in the case the funds are settled by bank transfer. BullionStar assumes no liability for incorrectly stated bank account details.
The agreement between the customer and BullionStar is binding when the customer has accepted the price offered by BullionStar and BullionStar has taken possession of the items sold. The customer has no cancellation rights.
If items sold to BullionStar, at enhanced testing or at melting, are proven not to contain the weight or purity/karat of the stated metal specified on the purchase invoice or agreement by e.g. the metal being another metal than what was specified, or by the weight or purity deviating, BullionStar will pro-rate the calculation and demand the customer to pay back the resulting difference. BullionStar furthermore reserves the right to cancel an agreement where the items sold were subsequently proven not to contain the specified weight of the specified metal or differed in purity. In such cases, BullionStar demands full re-payment of the funds paid before returning the items to the customer.
