This User Agreement is effective on August 1, 2014, for all existing customers and all existing users of the website and will is effective for all customers and all new users of the website or otherwise.
Purchases, Sales and Orders:
You may make purchases, sell to and order from WCD only in accordance with our Order Terms and Conditions.
You are subject to the Disclaimers that have been made by WCD, which WCD encourages you to access and to read carefully, and to the other Disclaimers that are contained in this User Agreement, the Order Terms and Conditions, and the other policies adopted by WCD.
In addition, you represent and warrant to WCD that you have sufficient experience and knowledge to make informed decisions to purchase from and/or sell to WCD. You expressly acknowledge that you are making all of your own decisions in connection with purchases and/or sales and that WCD is not making any recommendation with respect to such purchases and/or such sales. You also expressly acknowledge that you are subject to a variety of risks, which risks are beyond the control of WCD, and you expressly acknowledge that WCD is not liable or responsible for those risks, for which you have sole responsibility. Those risks include, without limitation, risks associated with the price volatility of the products, particularly precious metals. Under certain market or other conditions (such as technological or other disruptions), you may not be able to liquidate the purchased products or liquidate the purchased products at prices acceptable to you.
All investments involve risk – coins and bullion metals are no exception. The value of a bullion coin or bar, or numismatic coin product is affected by many economic factors, including the current market price of bullion, the perceived scarcity of the coins, and many other factors. Some of these factors include the quality, current demand, and general market sentiment for the particular product. Bullion metals and numismatic coins can go down as well as up in value, as such, investing in them may not be suitable for everyone. Since all investments, including bullion and numismatic coins can decline in value, you should understand them well and have adequate cash reserves and disposable income before considering a bullion metals or numismatic coin investment.
Wholesale Coins Direct, LLC is a private distributor of precious metal products and is not affiliated with the U.S. Government. WCD employees are not licensed as investment advisors and are not authorized to recommend the purchase or sale of any investment securities. We only provide information regarding the products that we offer for sale. Check with a licensed professional with expertise in a particular market before making a decision to buy or sell any security, bond, annuity or financial instrument. The value of a numismatic coin is determined by multiple factors which can and do fluctuate independently from bullion prices. These factors include: the perceived scarcity of the coin, its quality, current demand, market sentiment, and economic factors. Bullion metals, rare coins and rare currency can go down as well as up in value. The coin market is subject to substantial fluctuations, including significant and rapid increases and decreases in value from time to time. As such, precious metal products may not be suitable for everyone. Investors must be able to assume the risk of such price fluctuations. WCD does not guarantee that any person buying for investment purposes will be able to sell for a profit in the future. The value of raw bullion and raw bullion coins is largely determined by the current spot or market price of these products. These prices fluctuate constantly throughout the trading day.
You shall indemnify and hold harmless WCD and its affiliates, directors, officers, executives, employees, and shareholders from and against any and all costs, damages, expenses, liabilities and obligations, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, that you may incur as a result of, or in connection with, (a) any breach of any representation or warranty made by you to WCD, or (b) your failure to comply with this User Agreement, the Order Terms and Conditions, or the other policies adopted by WCD.

Without limiting its rights and its remedies, WCD may turn your account over to a collection agency or a lawyer for collection.

You expressly authorize WCD to charge your credit card, debit or draft from your bank account, or debit funds already allocated to your account with WCD for any and all such amounts.
Our “Market Loss Policy” (Ask to Ask policy):
When purchasing from WCD, once we have issued a confirmation number, the price is either locked-in for your order or inventory has been allocated to your order. The transaction may not be cancelled, but only offset at our current ask price. WCD's Market Loss Policy applies to all products offered on our website; however, it is generally more applicable to bullion precious metals as they are more volatile than numismatic coin products. If WCD has not experienced a loss between the time you confirmed your order and the time of cancellation, you will only be charged the fixed $50.00 cancellation fee. Any deficit between the price at which we sold to you and the offsetting purchase price and/or prices, is your responsibility only if your item(s) is cancelled or returned. That amount will be charged to you, plus a $50.00 cancellation fee. This is our Market Loss Policy. Any market gain on cancellations or returns shall remain the property of WCD.
When selling to WCD, once we have issued a confirmation number, the price is either locked-in for you or your confirmed sale to WCD has been placed in the open market. Your transaction may not be cancelled, but only offset at our current buy price. Any deficit between the price at which we bought from you and the offsetting purchase price and/or prices, is your responsibility if we do not receive your items. The difference will be charged to you, plus a $50.00 (USD) cancellation fee. This is our Market Loss Policy. Any market gain on cancellations shall remain the property of WCD.
Wholesale Coins Direct reserves the right to refuse an order when the confirmed price is incorrect due to computer-related problems, pricing error, incorrect item descriptions or sudden movements in the precious metals market. Furthermore, WCD reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order deemed questionable, of significant risk to WCD, or in potential violation of U.S. Anti-Money Laundering Laws regardless of the price confirmation.
Your WCD order may be automatically canceled if we do not receive payment within three (3) business days. Once you have placed an order with Wholesale Coins Direct, whether through our website or over the telephone, you have entered into a binding agreement.
In addition to all other rights and remedies available to WCD, in the event of any failure by you to comply with this User Agreement, WCD may, without limiting its other rights and its other remedies, suspend or terminate your account. The suspension or the termination of your account shall not affect your obligations under this User Agreement, our Order Terms and Conditions, or our Market Loss Policy.
Furthermore, WCD may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, apply any of your funds in its possession to pay your monetary obligations to WCD and may offset any monetary obligations that WCD has to you against your monetary obligations to WCD. WCD may, at its discretion, apply funds in its possession, including, without limitation, amounts paid by you for other purchases or amounts payable by you for sales to WCD, to your obligations to WCD in such manner as WCD determines to be appropriate.
