    To high for the average investor, if someone
    wants to buy just a few once’s of silver for
    example or small quantities of gold there
    are free options all over ebay.

    if it's too much for you, maybe right now you shouldn't be buying any?

    Yeah, $2000 dollars is a whole lot of money to me, especially to stack with! I'll leave Kitco to the white shirt fat cats with deep pockets! :D Ain't no sweat off mine! 112.gif

    Or if you want smaller amounts of silver or gold, buy it at your local LCS. If you are fortunate enough to have one near you.

    Sir, I don't think you are really understanding what business is facing right now. I cannot get more employees. I just lost one 10 minutes ago, hired away by a government agency. Many, many people simply will not work if you do not require them to prove they are looking and getting extra unemployment. So, any remaining employees are more in demand. Then you have massive backlogs in ports around the US keeping product out.

    Given this, business has to prioritize who gets product. I am sorry if it upsets you, but business needs to take care of who keeps us in business every year. Sorry, but I am making sure the USDA gets their 45 million pounds a year, other 20 million pound customers gets theirs, so a customer wanting only 10,000 every 4 months may or may not get theirs. Its not personal man, given the massive constraints we are under businesses have to prioritize customers. I am turning down business left and right every day. I wish I didn't have to, but it is reality today.

    The idea that "losing orders from paying customers" is a threat is not reality businesses worry about today. Customers are not king, raw material supply and employees are king. They are what is in short supply, not customers.

    do what you have to do if thats the current market then you HAVE NO CHOICE.. Turning down business everyday is got to be a killer no supplies or workers... but your still operating right thats the positive keep building on it...

    I understand sir, and thanks for that.

    I was just trying to tell the other side, why companies are forced to turn down orders in this environment. Most consumers are like you, believing companies are being stupid or mean turning down small orders, I was simply trying to let you know WHY we are forced into it right now. I am sure the company instituting the $2000 minimum charge is the same. Not enough workers to handle all orders, and need to maximize profit per order with very limited labor. Every day we have to decide whom we will service and whom we have to turn away. We are actually better than a competitor is right now. I hear they have almost 50% shortage of workers right now. We are only helping out customers of theirs who will move to us long term with profitable business.
