FAQ

What does ‘physically backed’ mean?

You buy shares of real gold and silver bars from our partner pro aurum and philoro. The bars are safely stored in a secure vault in Switzerland. When you buy gold and silver on Bitpanda, you are the owner of a specific share of real gold and silver, stored in a secure vault.

How is the gold and silver I buy on Bitpanda stored?

With Bitpanda Metals we take care of all the security. The gold and silver you buy on Bitpanda is stored in Switzerland, in a secure vault where it’s 100% insured. This is the perfect convenience solution as you don’t have to go to a gold trader to buy physical gold or silver. Storing gold or silver at home can be a security risk. You need a special and usually expensive safe in order to get it covered by insurance, which again usually costs money. Alternatively, you can store it in a deposit box at a bank, which means that you have to go there in person and you also have to pay comparably high fees for storing it there.

Do I have to pay fees for gold?

Yes. You pay a premium when buying/selling precious metals, and there are storage fees. For buying and selling gold, the premium is 0.5% of the amount you buy or sell. Insurance and storage premiums are waived for all users when buying the first 20g of gold. For all holdings above this amount you pay our standard fee of 0.0125% per week of the total amount you hold, which is a lot cheaper than the usual amount for storing precious metals in a secure and insured vault. It will be calculated daily and reduced from your respective Metals wallet on a weekly basis (if the wallet balance is 0, no premiums are deducted).

Do I have to pay fees for silver?

Yes. Like for gold, you pay a premium when buying and selling precious metals, as well as storage fees. For silver, you pay a premium of 2.5% for buying and 2% for selling. Insurance and storage fees are waived for all users when buying the first 200g of silver. For all holdings above this amount you pay 0.025% per week of the total silver amount you hold. It will be calculated daily and reduced from your respective Metals wallet on a weekly basis (if the wallet balance is 0, no premiums are deducted). While the premium for silver is a little bit higher than for gold, it is still a lot cheaper than the premium you usually have to pay for a service like this.

Do I have to pay fees for platinum?

Yes. You have to pay a premium when you buy or sell platinum as well, plus there are storage fees. The premium for buying platinum is 2.5% and for selling platinum is 2%. Insurance and storage fees are waived for the first 20g of platinum you buy. For more than 20g, you pay insurance and storage fees of 0.025% for platinum per week of the total platinum amounts you hold.

Do I have to pay fees for palladium?

Yes. Like for the other digitised precious metals on Bitpanda you have to pay a premium when you buy or sell palladium, plus there are storage fees. For palladium, the premium for buying is 2.2% and selling is 1.8%. Insurance and storage fees are waived for the first 20g you buy. For more than 20g of palladium, you pay insurance and storage fees of 0.025% for palladium per week of the total palladium amounts you hold.

Why is Bitpanda Metals duty free?

The vault where the gold and silver you buy on Bitpanda is stored is a duty-free storage facility in Switzerland. This means that there is no value added tax (VAT) on purchases–even for silver.

Can I set up a savings plan for precious metals?

Yes. You can buy gold, silver, palladium and platinum on a daily, weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. Set up as many savings plans as you want and combine gold and silver purchases with your other regular digital asset investments. This way you can diversify your portfolio while at the same time benefit from the cost average effect.
