How can I pay for my purchase?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

When purchasing investment metal product(s) from our company, we will reserve your item(s) at the price set on the e-commerce website checkout for 30 minutes only. Orders can only be honoured if bank transfer payments are credited during our office hours of 8.30am to 7.00pm (GMT +8) Monday to Friday . If payments are made outside of office hours then IPM Group will have to instigate a new invoice the following day if the market prices have indeed moved.

To completely avoid these bank transfer issues we offer our customers the facility to pre-credit your own personal customer account with funds so that it may fully-facilitate your purchase at any time of day or night. Customers can pre-credit their account with US$,  Sing$,  MYR,   Sterling  or  Euros.
Please read here

Deposit Required :   We need to receive good credit in the currency you are intending to trade in (US$  Sing$,  Myr,   Sterling  or  Euros) of at least 10% of the total purchase price via bank transfer or 8% over PayPal (Debit / Credit cards).

If payment is not received within the time frame given, we reserve the right to either cancel your order, or provide a new quotation based on the latest metals (product) price.

  • We are happy to extend the payment receivership time frame, but please contact us to confirm your arrangements.
  • You may wish to pre-credit your own personal customer account with funds so that it may facilitate your purchase.

If you have in fact arranged / pre-paid 10% of the total purchase price then the remaining 90% of the invoice has to be received within 2 business days of the initial order being placed, after which we reserve the right to either cancel your order, or provide a new quotation based on the latest market price.

Again we are happy to extend time frame for final remaining payment, but please contact us to confirm your arrangements.

You can view your credit at IPM at any time using your own personal customer logon details.

Credit Card Payments
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

We are now accepting credit payment from a number of different credit cards and debit cards, through our payment gateway with PayPal. We will only accept credits received through PayPal to a minimum of 5% and a maximum of 10% of the total invoice  - to lock in the price of the metals and confirm the trade. Further payment will be by direct bank transfer.

Using PayPal you can credit anyone of these cards above. Buyers can use a Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express credit cards to pay with PayPal. You can also use any debit cards that display the Visa or Mastercard logo.

Our company PayPal account email is paypal@ipm.capital           

Please take note: All funds received through PayPal come with a surcharge of 5% (which is charged by PayPal to us), hence any credit received will have 5% deducted.The adjusted credit will then automatically be credited to your specific account via your email address.

When crediting Store Credit with IPM Group, then all PayPal & Credit-Card Credits will be converted into Sing$
by our payment gateway provider.

Note on surcharge cost: Obviously 5% surcharge on PayPal usage sounds expensive, but based of a 8% deposit of the total invoice amount (the remainder by bank transfer or cash) actually only equates to an increase in the total invoice of 0.5% (1/2 of 1%).

This payment will guarantee your product price fixed at the time of purchase. The remaining funds can be received within 48 hours by bank transfer.


We do offer cash payment settlements on the remainder of the invoiced purchase price, but this is to a limit of Sing$ 20,000, we also require a copy of either your IC or passport to support cash settlement.

What are intermediary bank fees? How much should I send to cover these costs?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 
Most international wire transfers pass through at least one intermediary bank. Intermediary bank fees are levied by these intermediary banks and not by the sender or recipient bank. If you specify the exact amount that should reach IPM, your bank will advise you on how much more money you need to send to cover the intermediary bank fees. 

∧Back to Top

 

 

Where and in what name should I send my payment?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 
If you are paying us from the funds already credited to your IPM customer account, you do not need to send us any money. We will deduct the sum you owe us from the funds on your IPM account.
 
If you are paying us by bank wire, the beneficiary should be IPM Group. Detailed bank wire instructions (address, account number, etc.) will be available on the Transaction Processing page during the checkout process and in the confirmation email that you will receive. 
 
NOTE: To speed up your purchase, please carefully follow our bank wire instructions. In the reference line of your bank wire, please put the IPM account holder’s name, followed by your email [e.g. John Smith (johnsf@gmail.com)].

GST - When is it applicable ? Which items or purchase’s are effectively exempted ?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Certain precious metal products are treated as “Investment Precious Metals” by the Singaporean and Malaysian Tax Authorities under the GST Act’s and hence are exempt from GST.

The products on our website will clearly show which items are individually exempt from GST.

The Freeport Facility (and Brinks) is a bonded warehouse/zone and hence any goods held there are not considered to have entered Singapore so do not attract GST.

1.    Malaysian customer purchase and ship to Malaysia.
       The system will treat this as an export hence no GST will be incurred.

       However we will send you a separate invoice if any items of your purchase are GST applicable under Malaysian law.

2.    Malaysian customer purchase and ship to Freeport.
       The system will treat this as an export hence no GST will be incurred.

3.    Singaporean customer purchase and ship to Freeport
       The system will treat this as an export hence no GST will be incurred.

4.    Singaporean customer purchase and ship to Singapore
       The system will treat this as a local purchase hence GST 7% will be incurred, but only on product items that are not considered 'Investment Precious Metals' .

Cancellations

 

 
Cancelling a purchase of precious metal bullion products
 
Can I return or exchange products that I have bought from IPM ?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 
Most of our customers are very satisfied with the products that they receive. Sometimes, however, you may find that the products that you receive are circulated (previously owned) or seem to have some reddish or whitish spots on them. Most of these spots and marks are just residues of chemicals used in the manufacturing process by the Mints or Refiners. Often, they can be polished off with a soft cloth. Even if they are hard to clean off, they do not impact the value of the coin/bar because they are not impurities but just superficial marks.
 
Your coins/bars are no less valuable because they have these marks. The value of precious metal bullion coins and bars depends primarily on their metal content and not on their appearance. Minor blemishes and regular wear and tear do not deplete the value of precious metal bullion coins and bars. Your coin/bar will fetch its full market price whenever you resell it.
 
Despite this, if you are still unsatisfied with your products and would like to have them exchanged, please call +65 315 827 91 within three business days of receiving the products. Our customer service representative will be happy to process your exchange. Please note, however, that:
 
·   A like-for-like exchange can only be done if the products that you bought are in stock.
·   If the product that you bought is unavailable, you might be offered a similar product in exchange.
·   If the product that you are offered in exchange is more expensive than the original products that you bought, you will be charged the difference.
·   We cannot guarantee that the products that you are sent in exchange will be uncirculated.
·   You must send your original products to IPM in their original packaging by any shipping method of your choice, at your own cost.
·   IPM will charge you at the usual applicable rate for shipping products in exchange.
 
Our products come directly from the refiners and hence are guaranteed genuine. Products once sold, cannot be returned under any circumstances. IPM can only offer to exchange your products. We do not offer refunds, but we can buy back your products from you at the prevailing market price at any time.
For information on selling products back to IPM, see our “Selling precious metal bullion products FAQs”.

What is your cancellation policy with respect to the purchase of precious metal bullion products, before delivery has taken place ?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

For every cancelled purchase, an administrative fee of Myr 100 (Sing$ 30, US$ 20) will be charged.
If the price of the precious metals you were purchasing rises above the price at which you agreed to purchase them, there will be no additional charge.
If there is no change in price from the time you make your purchase to the time it is cancelled, there will be no additional charge.
IPM incurs a market loss when the price of the precious metals you were purchasing falls below the price at which you agreed to purchase them. Should this happen, you will be charged the equivalent of the resultant decrease in the total value of your purchase in addition to the administrative fee.

∧Back to Top

 

 
How does IPM calculate market loss repayments for the purchase and then cancellation of precious metal bullion products ?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 
When you cancel a purchase, in addition to paying an administrative fee, you may have to reimburse IPM for any market loss we sustain as a result of the cancellation of your purchase. If there is no change or an increase in price from the time you make your purchase to the time it is cancelled, you will be charged only the administrative fee.
However, if we do sustain a market loss (i.e. if the price of the precious metals you were purchasing falls below the price at which you agreed to purchase them), you will be charged as illustrated by the following examples.

 

Gold Example

Unit price of your transaction

Unit price at the time of cancellation

Quantity

Loss or gain (unit price difference multiplied by quantity)

Market loss / repayment to IPM

 

Example 1

 

 

$ 1,200.00

 

$ 1,130.00

 

10 oz

 

($1,130 - $ 1,200) x 10 = - $700

 

$ 700.00

Example 2

 

$ 1,200.00

$ 1,240.00

10 oz

($1,240 - $ 1,200) x 10 = + $400

$ 0.00


If your purchase is cancelled at your request before the payment deadline, the market loss will be calculated using the relevant IPM live spot price that prevails at the time when you request the cancellation.
 
IPM will issue multiple payment reminders before cancelling your purchase. If your purchase is cancelled due to non-payment, the market loss will be calculated using the last available price fixing published by the London Bullion Market Association (the London PM Fix) on the day that the payment deadline expires.
 
Any market loss repayment and administrative fees that you owe may be charged to your credit card or deducted from your cash balance held with us. We will send you an email to notify you of the charge.

∧Back to Top

 

What happens if my payment does not reach IPM by the stipulated deadline?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 
Your payment must be received by IPM no later than two business days from the date on which a price is confirmed for your purchase.
 
If we do not receive your payment by this deadline, IPM may deem your purchase to be cancelled and you may be liable for market loss repayments and other fees, as described in our T&C (Terms and Conditions).
 
If you expect your payment to be delayed, please call +65 315 827 91 to have this fact noted on your account. We will obviously make a special circumstance on late payments if you inform us before deadline.
