Why Live Pricing

The prices move according to the market data with refresh rates of under 10 seconds enabling the discerning investor to trade physical precious metals with the comfort that their investment is based in the global markets. Linking to the live market prices also enables MetCon to continuously offer the most competitive rates for physical investment precious metal products in the market. After extensive research, MetCon has partnered with the Global expert in commodity pricing, Thomson Reuters, to enable a live real-time connection for all our products into the global precious metal market.
How is the price determined and what do the red and green indicator arrows mean?
MetCon makes use of the Thomson Reuters Knowledge Direct API as the live feed of market prices. MetCon does not influence, edit or manipulate the prices that we receive from Thomson Reuters. What we get is what we give to you.
Our website makes use of red and green indicator arrows to assist with the most recent movement in the metal prices. The popping red arrow indicates that the most recent metal price has fallen. The popping green arrow means the most recent metal price has risen.
But if the product prices are continuously changing, then what is the final price that I pay?
Once you add the products to your shopping cart, your price is locked in for 5 minutes. If you decide to browse and add further items to the cart, then each new item will have its’ own reserved price for 5 minutes. Once you have added all your items and clicked on the check-out item; your cart will refresh the price on any products that have exceeded the 5 minute window, the remaining products will have their prices locked. These prices are used for the final order confirmation page.
At the order confirmation page, your prices are locked for a further 5 minutes to allow for the payment to be made, before being refreshed. You will have an option of paying using your credit or debit card through a third party payment gateway, or by processing an EFT.
