For those who wish to purchase gold, it is important to possess a basic understanding of how gold value is calculated. The pricing of gold products (excluding tax) takes into account two things – ‘Gold Value’ and ‘Making Charge’. The ‘Gold Value’ is calculated using a ‘gold rate’ which remains constant at any given moment in time.
In the physical practice of selling gold jewellery and bullion products, a fixed ‘Gold Rate’ is used to calculate the ‘Gold Rate’ within the product price. This ‘Gold Rate’ is dependent on the market value of gold and is usually fixed per product by the jeweller. However, GoldCityMall® uses the live international gold rate to bring transparency in the sale and purchase of gold jewellery and bullion products.
Jewellery and Bullion (any form of raw gold like gold coins, biscuits and bars) are two categories of gold products in which one can invest on GoldCityMall®. GoldCityMall® enables you to purchase these at the live international gold rate.
GoldCityMall® believes in providing a transparent transaction opportunity to customers and jewellers. By pricing products based on the live international gold rate, GoldCityMall® can protect jewellers from the changes in gold rate while providing customers with the best price on their products.
