Shipping and insurance

What are the shipping and insurance costs?

The cost to ship your purchase to commercial destinations in Hong Kong is USD 80 for the first 1,500 oz or less, and USD 3.50 per 100 oz thereafter, which includes an insurance fee. This shipping cost is applicable to commercial addresses in Hong Kong only, and cannot cover non-commercial addresses, residential addresses, industrial addresses, hospitals, hotels, banks and some remote areas, etc.

Shipping and insurance fees outside of Hong Kong may vary depending on the size, weight and delivery address of your order. Please contact us to get a quotation on the estimated costs before you place an order. An exchange rate of USD 1 to HKD 7.80 will be applied on international orders.
