How many grams in 1 Ounce, When selling Gold?
Over the past months after looking at various ebay scrap gold listings many ebay sellers who do not have any knowledge in gold seem to list that they have for example: 28gms of gold / 1oz. when in actual fact they are using a different method of Weight. Most people know that 28.35 grams is 1 Ounce, but that is the avoirdupois Ounce, the common method to weigh groceries etc. When you are weighing precious metals or stones, jewellers use another method called Troy in which 31.103 grams is 1 Troy Ounce. So remember:
28.35 GRAMS = 1 OUNCE (WHEN WEIGHING GROCERIES)
31.103 GRAMS = 1 OUNCE (WHEN WEIGHING GOLD)
....and other helpful tips.
Hope this guide is useful to anyone who is wanting to sell any type of gold, scrap or wearable, to help the buyer know exactly what they are getting for their money.
This also helps by getting more bidders interested in your listing.
1) By putting the weight of the gold item in your title attracts more bidders to your items (fact).
2) Putting the weight of the gold in your description attracts more bidders and a higher price as bidders know exactly how much weight they are getting (fact)
3)Even better, by taking a photo of the gold item(s) on some weighing scales (showing the weight) is added security for both you and the bidders/buyer.
