New eBay auctions8th May 2016
From this next Saturday, 14th of May, we will proceed to auction a great number of coins and lots on eBay. This is a great opportunity to get many of our items at reduced prices, as the auctions are without reserve and all start at 99 cents.
You can find these auctions through our shop in eBay at silveragecoinscom; and as always, you will able to combine as many items as you wish without any extra shipping changes. You can also combine auctions and purchases through our website; for which you will need to let us know before making the payment, either through our account in eBay or our email firstname.lastname@example.org, or proceed to make the payments and then request the corresponding refund.
We would like to remind you that all our auctions in eBay are also subject to the same guaranties as the sales in the shop; and you will also have the additional guaranties and support of eBay and PayPal; of which you can find additional information in their respective websites.
We hope you like our selection of coins and lots, and we would like to wish you good luck in all your bids.
2016 Shipping Costs22nd January 2016
As it is usual, at the beginning of every year our postal service provider has updated their list of charges, forcing us to adjust our shipping costs for all national and international shipments; and also compensate for the current exchange rates between the three different currencies that we accept.
The changes are minimal: some did not need to be updated, and the rest were not increased more than 50 cents/pennies. If you wish, and as always, you can find these new prices in the table displayed in our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Thank you for your understanding and for using our services another year.
Changes to our P&P and new eBay affiliate marketing links24th October 2015
Today we have adjusted the Post and Packaging charges to the current exchange rates for US Dollars and British Pounds; which has resulted in cheaper shipments on both currencies due to the current low price of the Euro.
We have also removed the maximum limit for orders to countries that do not accept insured mail (e.g. United States, Great Britain, Australia), which from now on do not need to pay for insured parcels or multiple shipments. From today we will be responsible for the insurance of these shipments while keeping all our guarantees intact.
And last, you may have notice that we have added on the detail pages of every coin links to eBay. These links belong to eBay’s affiliate marketing program, or ePN (eBay Partner Network), which will be paying us a small percentage of every sale generated through these links. If by any chance the coins you are looking for are not available in our stock, please use these links and you’ll be helping us continue to provide our services; as well as finding a seller with the coin you wish to purchase.
If you have any problems or questions regarding the new features or changes, please let us know and we will try to solve them as soon as possible.
New Mobile Version3rd May 2015
Since the 21 of April Google began expanding its use of mobile-friendliness, which will influences the ranking of all websites in the internet. For this reason we have decided that this would be the perfect time to implement our new Mobile Version of Silveragecoins.com, which we have been developing over the last months.
We tried to keep all the features and functions of the Full Desktop Version in the new one; however, even though you can still see the price ranges at the bottom of every details page, for now we had to leave out the Price Guide; at least until we can find a way to fit the full price tables in the small confinement of mobile device screens without failing any mobile-friendly tests, which would defeat the purpose of having this new version. Since the price guide is not accessible, you may also find some difficulty finding coins and particular issues that are currently unavailable for sale; though we expect to find a solution to this problem in short. In the mean time, to tackle these inconveniences, you can continue to use these features as before in our Full Desktop Version from any mobile device or tablet.
We really hope you like our new Mobile Version, but in case you don’t, your preferences would be saved in your browser and you will be automatically redirected to our full Desktop Version as before every time you access our website. You can also change between versions with ease, for which we have placed links at the end of every page of the Mobile Version and on the Main Menu, and a link on the submenu of the Desktop Version that is visible from any page in the “version” section –next to the English / Spanish buttons-. Of course, none of these will be available to users with laptop or desktop computers, only mobile devices will have access to this new version.
Finally, we would like to apologise beforehand for any possible bugs you might encounter and would appreciate if you let us know about them so we can deal with them as soon as possible. And we would also really like to hear from you any comments or suggestions you may have.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 201513th December 2014
Thank you for continuing with us for another year; we hope our services will also be useful to you during the next.
Since we are entering the Christmas season, and as every other year, we remind you that during this period you might experience some delays in your shipments due to the high volume of postage that all postal services experience during this season. We appreciate your patience, and like to reassure you that - as always- all our sales are guaranteed against any postal losses or damage.
Also remind you that you still have until the 25th of December to participate in our “Coins in the Movies” promotion; date when we will be choosing at random one of the participants and send him or her a Silver Ounce coin completely free. You can find more information about this promotion in our Coins in the Movies page.
And last, also notify you that from the 1st of January, and due to the current low prices of our silver coins, which by policy are linked to the prices of precious metals in the international markets, we will be ending our “Free Shipments” promotion for sales over $100, €70, or £60. If you have any large purchase planned, and wish to take advantage of this offer, please place your order before the 1st of January 2015.
And that’s all... Have a very nice Christmas, and thank you for choosing Silveragecoins.com for another year.
Ebay Scams and Summer delays5th September 2014
It has come to our attention that some Ebay sellers are using our name and pictures to scam buyers. If you find any auction with our name or pictures of our coins and doubt their authenticity, please do not hesitate to contact us. In any case, let you know that we do not sell our items through other sellers or names, nor we grant anyone else permission to use our name. At the moment, the only account we occasionally use to auction items on Ebay is silveragecoinscom.
We also take this opportunity to apologize to any affected customer for the delays in some shipments along the last month. Apart from taking a week off –the first one in 4 years-, we have also been working only on a part time basis; which is also the case of our local post office. From the 16th of September we will return to full time –as well as our post office- and keep our compromise of sending every shipment on the next working day after the reception of the payment.
Thank you for your patience and your understanding.
New Mobile Website and Server Changes2nd July 2014
In preparation for the launch of our new mobile website, which we expect to be ready in short, we had to make some changes recently to our server.
You may have noticed that the addresses to all the pages in our website are now preceded by the "www" subdomain. This might have the adverse effect on some users who have stored their preferences and shopping cart content previous to the 1st of July; as these would not be accessible any longer, and would have to be entered again. We sincerely apologise for this inconvenience; but we were unable to make the necessary changes while keeping the old cookies.
We have also changed the access to the static content throughout our website to a cookie-less subdomain. This shouldn’t have any effect on your browsing and shopping experience –with the exception of faster loading pages, especially those with many pictures.
Besides these issues, there is always the possibility of unintended error and mistakes; in which case we would appreciate if you let our webmaster know at email@example.com.
Thank you for your understanding, and again, sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
