But at the same time, one must also keep certain things in mind while selling gold to get money. There are some essential norms that one must follow.

  • Firstly, the seller must find out an authentic buyer to sell gold for cash. Pawn or fake dealers may dupe the sellers. They may pay relatively lesser amount of cash for larger amount of gold that has been sold to them. Sometimes imposters who endorse themselves as authentic buyers by offering attractive schemes and alluring advertisements may attract the sellers. These hoax parties or fake buyers can be easily avoided. The most reliable and authentic buyers are the jewelry stores. They always will have a trade license. They will weigh the gold with proper weighing machine and will state the actual or relatable price. They will provide a receipt or a document that will show the proof that transaction has been made. So it is always wise to sell gold for cash to the jewelry shops.
  • Secondly, the seller must not go haywire and plea the buyers to take all the ornaments he or she has brought. The need of the seller may be genuine but the buyers have certain ethics that they are entitled to follow. The sellers before going to the shops must check whether their ornaments are containing 24K mark or not. Only 24K gold items can get the highest price. The rate is usually determined on the basis of their Karate.

The gold at first is melt and the buyer can state its value. Hence, the price of the melting gold is also included. So the seller must identify the karate or the GP (GOLD PLATING) in the ornaments before making the deal. Along with that the seller must do price research to know the actual price gold in the market.
