This form is for posting data on orders that you have placed with bullion dealers. The idea is to get an early warning when bullion dealers have financial problems. It is much easier for a bullion dealer to get into financial problems when orders are delayed.
There should be one thread per dealer. Ideally, you will post when your funds have cleared, and then edit the post when you have received the order. You should include:  the date you placed the order,  the date the funds cleared (the same day for credit cards, the next day for bank wires, or for whenever the bullion dealer considers funds cleared for other payments types), and  the date the order was shipped. Preferably, you should use the format: Order date: June 1, 2015 Clear date: June 2, 2015 Ship Date: June 5, 2015 Using the same format will allow the data to be read automatically by a program to detect shipping patterns. You can include additional comments after those first three lines. However, I recommend *not* including the amount of your purchase, or tracking number. If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this post.
