If you’re involved in buying, trading, or selling precious metals, you should consider opening a bullion account. With this option, the ability to buy and sell is simpler, as is redeeming precious metal options at more competitive prices. You’ll have digital access to unique platforms, deliveries made to your doorstep, and more. Here are a few tips for opening a bullion account to make it easier and start enjoying the benefits sooner, brought to you by the precious metals experts from First National Bullion, the silver and gold dealers Carlsbad collectors rely on for outstanding quality and service.

Find the Best Provider

When opening a bullion account, you have many providers to choose from, including dealers, banks, exchanges, brokers, and online platforms. When making a decision, compare the features and check the provider’s reputation through customer reviews.

All your inquiries will be answered truthfully and comprehensively by a reliable provider. The institution should aim to guide you in understanding precious metals to the fullest, enabling you to begin to plan selling, buying, and investment strategies.

Verify Your Identification

Registration begins with verifying your legal name, address, date of birth, and other requirements listed by the provider. This includes providing government-issued photo identification, whether it’s a state ID, driver’s license, or passport. The objective is to help institutions and officials protect against illegal activities, such as internal money laundering.

Verification requirements still apply when opening a business account. Gather documentation that includes your official business name, identification numbers, tax details, and other relevant information. These documents can verify you own a legal establishment and prevent you from losing access to the precious metals markets. The requirements and access for another account, such as a trust, foundation, or IRA, will vary from provider to provider.

Wait for Approval

Once you’ve applied, you’ll need to wait for approval. The denial of an application is determined by reasons outlined by the bullion service provider. Common reasons for denial include a poor credit history, lack of financial background, and requested monthly volume.

Once you’re verified and approved and the account is funded, you’re typically given access to a secure trading portal where you can begin dispatching orders. Approved methods for funding the account usually include credit card payments, banking transfers, debit card options, cryptocurrency, and more. You can buy and sell approved bullion types online or by phone at current market prices or your specified limits.

Discover the Benefits

Having a bullion account allows your customer details to populate automatically. As a result, the order execution process could speed up. With an account, you generally have the opportunity to hold both bullion and cash, which can be used when selling or buying precious metals. Another benefit of an account is having a more manageable and updated method to track all transactions now and in the future.

Certain program providers offer incentives, such as grams of precious metals, as gifts. However, this will vary, so it would be best to check first and compare multiple program providers before opening an account.
