Hi, I was in Buriram yesterday and while doing some shopping in Robinsons I thought I might sell some gold bars that I bought in patts about 5 or 6 years ago, I was a bit surprised by the amount of commission the gold shop was asking, I tried another shop but got the same answer, has anyone sold any recently and knows what the average charge would be per 1 baht of gold bar,

Thanks.

I've sold gold bars but unless you say how much how can anyone compare.

What commission? They have the daily prices for buy/sell at the front door. It  differs about 100baht per1baht of gold. If they want more, name and shame them ( written in thai and with photos of the shop) on Fb. Should get their attention.

They didn't ask for commission. just offered a lower than standard price for the gold as they didn't have a relationship with the shop that sold the gold originally.

 

To get the standard price that is on the windows of every gold shop sell it back to the place you bought it or a shop that has an assosiation with them

 

if you have 1 Baht bars you may have difficulties, otherwise you get the price in the windows, assuming no damage to the bars, so no charge.

I have asked if you are selling gold bar how much does the shop take, the price in the window was 19,200 but that is not what the shop offered me so I assume they are taking a commission for buying the gold, but if it's more help to you I was selling 15 baht, so if you have sold gold bars before at that time I guess you checked the price online before going to a shop, so did you get the full price or did the shop take a cut.

Every time we sold gold we got the price in the window, they have 2 buying and selling,

 

if you want to check check the price then https://www.thairath.co.th/home has it both jewellery and bars as well as petrol prices
