Members from UK

I need to buy 1/4 and 1/2 Oz rhodium bars from this website:

http://www.goldline.co.uk/rhodium-bars.page

I called them and they will not accept US checks - only bank transfer.

So such service is needed:

1) You buy the bars
2) Ship to Escrow
3) Escrow will pay you you expenses from http://www.goldline.co.uk/rhodium-bars.page (bar price + VAT) + additional % (negotiated with you) for your work

I am in the UK.

How many bars are you wanting? What is the total value?

So, is this the plan? Please correct me if not.

You pay escrow -> Someone in UK buy bars -> Bars ship to escrow in US -> Escrow pays person who bought bars -> Escrow ships bars to you.. ?

How much are you offering for this service?

Have you by any chance asked them whether they'd consider accepting Bitcoin? It's a rare thing in the UK but Cex, which is a huge high street second hand goods chain and not cex.io, accepts Bitcoin through Coinbase.

And you may struggle to find an escrow who wants to directly accept the posted bars. I assume most of them want to keep it virtual only.

Right now I need 2x 1/4 and 1x 1/2 Oz bars (2 in total)

1) Price according to Baird including VAT is £771.30. They will also charge you some shipping, no idea how much - in US it is ~$6 Priority Mail ($2.50 First Class)

2) Please check rates to US (I think will be around $10 regular, $30 priority)

3) Yes - I will pay to Escrow and I will pay Escrow's fee. You will ship to Escrow and she/he will pay you and ship me.

4) I'm thinking about paying 5% as a service fee to person who will by bars. It can be negotiated in minor range.

These guys are in the US already and have pretty solid prices. I've never ordered from them before, but I did a quick BBB check to make sure its not a scam site. Probably not a bad idea to look into them further if you do end up ordering from them.

No they dont have them

It will take at least 6 weeks to get it to them. They will cash out checks for at least 10 biz day.

So 2 months of wait

And of course I know all suppliers of rhodium in this country - thank you for the help!

4) I'm thinking about paying 5% as a service fee to person who will by bars. It can be negotiated in minor range.

Okay. I will be willing to help, but there are some issues.

1) I would be happy getting a full quote for you.

2) It would usually be a flat rate for such an order, but depending on how quickly you want it, that can change.

3) These will most likely be hit with VAT, which makes shipping to escrow a problem. Plus I don't think any escrow wants to receive these, their part of the deal is purely online most of the time. I do not deal with Rhodium much, so am unsure of import rules into the USA regarding this precious metal.

4) I would be willing to do this for 6% of the total amount.

You would prepay escrow. I buy bars and instruct bullion dealer to ship them directly to you. I provide proof of this to both of you.
Upon confirmation that these are on the way to you, escrow releases funds to me, and our deal is done.

If you are interested, shoot me a PM, and we can look at this further.

Thanks

I was contacted by op  to escrow this.  I would be willing to escrow it.
Direct shipping to the op sounds like the right way to do it.
Less complicated then a double ship.

If I do this a a pure escrow I would charge 1%  plus 0.0005 btc for tx id fees.

If I double ship I need to check on laws etc and it is a lot more complex. Since I handle the goods. So I really do not want to do that.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Damn. I've been trying to purchase BTC with my UK bank account for months. Not possible because I'm an American who lives in NY. I sold a house in the UK and all funds were deposited to my UK account. PLEASE let me know if your deal falls through, or if you need anything else from the UK. I have a debit card and would like to handle business the same way that you're doing now. You pay for the product/shipping/escrow. 0% fee from me. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for offer

All parties did they best.

Zepher and philipma1957 were super helpful. However Baird has a waiting time of about month - which is unacceptably long for everybody.
So - no purchase is needed at the moment
