Building an accurate and up-to-date price comparison website in the precious metals space is extremely challenging.
Prices on dealer’s websites are constantly updating. Therefore, it is impossible to have exact pricing for each dealer.
The approach we have decided to take is to check each dealer’s website every hour. At this time, our system is looking for the top-tier check payment price. Our system is also checking to see if the dealer has the specific product in stock or not.
Our system then reports the data to the front end of our website and sorts the information from the lowest price to the highest price.
From time to time and due to different dealers displaying their prices differently, our system may grab the wrong price or grab no price at all. Please note we are constantly working to create the best solution possible. If you notice any issues around this problem, please email us at [email protected] so that we can try and rectify the issue.
You should set you expectations that the prices on our website will not match the prices on the dealers website. GSI should only be used as a guide to show which dealers are the lowest price for that specific product for that specific day. Dealers are constantly changing their prices and structure. This is why we believe visiting GSI is a good idea before every purchase so you know which dealer has the lowest price from the last scan.
GSI WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRICES ON OUR WEBSITE NOT MATCHING THOSE ON THE DEALER’S WEBSITE. WHEN YOU PLACE AN ORDER WITH A DEALER, YOUR SPECIFIC PRICE WILL BE LOCKED IN AT THAT SPECIFIC TIME BASED ON THE DEALERS WEBSITE AND PRICING, NOT THE PRICING FOUND ON GSI.
