Following the spirit of the holiday season, international precious metals wholesaler Dillon Gage Metals provides useful tips and trends for those wishing to gift coins for Christmas in 2015:

  • Unusually low prices throughout 2015 for both gold

  • Keep your audience in mind as you shop for coins. With such a wide selection of coins, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a specific theme that has a particular and special meaning for your gift recipient.
  • Purchasing a collector coin set for beginners is an excellent way to spark and inspire a lifelong passion for collecting and investing in precious metals for the younger generation.
  • Buying from well-known sovereign mints such as the U.S. Mint or Royal Canadian Mint is advisable. Regardless of where you shop, be certain that you purchase coins or collector sets from a reputable precious metals dealer.
  • Shopping online for gold and silver coins offers flexibility in both the price and what you receive. Spend a little time browsing selections to compare ounces to dollars before adding to your online cart.

Dillon Gage Metals Introduces “Point of Sale” on FizTrade.com

POS
Allows Retail Coin Dealers to Offer Interactive Customer Experience

ADDISON, TX (September 17, 2015) – Dillon Gage Metals, an international precious metals wholesaler, has launched an innovative point of sale component on FizTrade.com for retail coin dealers. Now, customers can have an immersive in-store experience and shop for inventory online while browsing real-time precious metals pricing.

The point of sale platform was introduced at last month’s American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money convention in Rosemont, Ill. Here’s how it works: Using a traditional or
tablet-based computer, retail coin dealers tap
into Dillon Gage Metal’s proprietary FizTrade
network, allowing them access to an
immense selection of coins priced according
to the current market. This technology allows
retail coin dealers the opportunity to interact
with customers on the floor where they can
display, discuss and conduct sales of product
beyond what is available in store. Key
advantages of the point of sale platform
include a much wider selection of coin
inventory than what the retailer typically
maintains on-site, and customers get the
benefit of locking in real-time prices for their purchases. Dillon Gage clients who utilize the portal are able to brand it with their company logo and produce receipts for their customers that bear the dealers’ name and company information.

“The point of sale platform is designed to engage and enhance the retail experience and customer interaction while creating efficiencies for the shop owner,” said Terry Hanlon, president of Dillon Gage Metals. “Dealers are particularly excited about this technology, which allows the customer to lock in the current metal’s price for purchases from a much wider inventory than dealers traditionally have on hand. This technology gets the retail sales force out from behind the counter and into a more hands-on sales consultation for a measurable return on investment. Additionally, the FizTrade Point of Sale component reduces the dealer’s market risk because they are selling and buying the metal based on the same spot market price. In a volatile market, this is extremely beneficial”

The real-time pricing feature is expected to add an additional layer of trustworthiness to the sales process. Even in the most volatile markets customers can view up-to-the-second pricing information while engaged in the sales process. Retail coin dealers have the ability to customize their own premiums for each product in the online catalog. “We find that dealers like having access to a full product catalog from which they can manage premiums and sell their own product as well,” stated John Humphrey, executive vice president of Dillon Gage’s Digital Metals.”

With the addition of the point of sale platform on the FizTrade network, Dillon Gage Metals demonstrates their commitment to remaining the industry leading wholesaler when it comes to dealer-friendly technological advancements in the precious metals marketplace. Watch a brief video that explains the new Dillon Gage Metals point of sale platform. For more information, please visit www.dillongage.com or call (800) 375-4653.
