  1. Thanks for the update. I buy coins regularly every month but I have never used Atkinsons before. I will now, businesses that provide quality customer service and show they value the customer are becoming a rare thing.
  2. My criticism was your poor customer service and poor communication. It had nothing to do with your stock levels. I make an effort to avoid all types of businesses that behave as they are doing the customer a favour.

    What to buy...

    If you buy the coins in smaller weights than the 1oz you’ll pay a slightly higher premium but if you ever find yourself in a position of needing cash the smaller weight coins will mean you can liquidate your gold closer to the amount of cash needed. No point selling 1oz of gold if you only need the value of 1/2 oz. Also the smaller weight coins give you a bigger group of potential buyers if you sell.
  4. I’ve got to agree with the advice already given. Stick with the standard bullion coins.

    Gold from the US.

    I don’t think this is a VAT. I believe it’s the new charge of U.K. Border Fee.
  6. I recommend using silver dip.
  7. No worries. Any one buying this from you will pay for the weight/value of gold. A couple of scratches or dinks on common coins won’t affect the value of them.
  8. Forget the phone app and trust your eyes. The security features are present and the coin looks beautiful from the photos. And it’s already been said that there are plenty other gold coins that are easier to fake than the 2021 Britannia.
  9. Can I suggest that if you haven’t already send @LawrenceCharda dm on here in the hope you can reach an agreeable solution. I got the impression from his comments yesterday that he is reasonable and willing to help you if you were to make direct contact away from this thread.

    It reminds me of a My Little Pony
  11. That was kind of my point. Who actually reading that considers that the wait is actually indefinitely. I would never have proceeded with the purchase once I’d read the pop up banner telling me the wait is possibly indefinite. If I had made the purchase I would not have waited longer than 3 months before trying to recover my money I also would not have believed the wait had no pre-determined end date. Any other business that operates a pre-order option on an order atleast give you an expected delivery date. Feb last year I preordered and payed at that point of ordering for something that was due to be delivered the following month. That date was pushed back 3 times to July then September and then Feb 2021, almost a year to the day since they took my money. At no point did I complain or try to cancel because the seller was clear and polite in their communication and contacted me at every point removing any need for me to contact or question them. I think the OP would never have started this thread if the seller treated the customer with more value than they have. For me that was a bigger sticking point than the T&Cs being reasonable or valid.
  12. @shep when this thread first started I wondered who would actually agree to the T&Cs and it seems now that from most responses on the thread not many would. I was more curious as to what you would consider a reasonable time to wait. I would never buy on those terms but if for some reason I did I would have waited 3 months max (dependant on the reply from the seller) before speaking to my bank in the hope they would charge back the money taken.
  13. @Darr3nGyou have quoted me out of context. The part you quoted was a direct question to another forum member and not regarding the OP not reading the T&Cs. Also the question was hypothetical and was more about how long they would think is a reasonable waiting time as an experienced buyer. The question was not about if they would have actually agreed to the T&Cs as an experienced buyer.
