Hero Bullion Orders
1.1 Minimum Sales Orders
There is a $99 minimum sales order for shipments within the U.S. regardless of the payment method. However, Hero Bullion reserves the right to request a ten percent (10%) deposit on sales orders deemed “significant” by Hero Bullion at our sole discretion, before we will accept and confirm the sales order and lock in prices. On sales orders greater than $500,000 (USD) we recommend that You contact our sales department at (214) 210-9948 to determine if a deposit will apply. For any sales orders shipped outside of the United States, our minimum is $5,000 (USD) per transaction.

When placing a sales order on the Site, the price at which Your sales order is submitted is the locked-in price. There are no commissions or fees besides costs associated with shipping, handling and insurance. Your confirmation order will be contained in a confirmation email. The price is locked-in for five (5) business days and to guarantee that price You must make Your payment and ensure it is dated within 24 hours of the time of Your confirmed sale and received by Hero Bullion within five (5) business days.
When You buy from Hero Bullion, and once we have issued a sales order confirmation number, a binding contract has been formed, the transaction price is locked-in and any corresponding market risk is transferred to You. If You default in Your performance of the contract by failing to make payment, shipment, or any other act required by You, we may cancel Your sales order. We reserve the right to cancel any sales order at any time at our sole discretion. Any cancellations are subject to our Market Loss Policy. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order at any time, including if it is deemed questionable or of significant risk including but not limited to suspicions of fraud.
