What are the metal prices displayed on your site? The metal prices displayed on our site are the 2nd London fix plus our metal premium for Gold. We use the London fix for silver which occurs once a day, noon GMT. When there is no London market, we use the most recent London market for the gold and silver price. Our metal premiums can be found on the Ordering Policy page located in the top navigation pane of our website. Our metal premiums are as follows:
- Gold Fixing - PM London Fix +2.5% surcharge
- Silver Fixing - London Fix +5.5% surcharge
- Platinum Fixing - PM London Fix +2% surcharge
Gold, Platinum & Silver
The London Fix is the procedure by which the price of gold and Platinum is set on the London market by the five members of the London Gold Pool. It is designed to fix a price for settling contracts between members of the London bullion market, and informally the London Fix provides a recognized rate that is used as a benchmark for pricing the majority of gold products throughout the world's markets. The Gold Fixing is conducted twice a day via conference call. The AM Fix is set at 10:30AM London time (5:30AM EST). The PM Fix is set at 3:00PM London time (10:00AM EST). JK Findings uses the PM Fix to set the metal market price daily for Gold at 10:30AM EST. The London Silver Fix is done once per day at Noon GMT.

General Site Navigation
JK Finding's new website will make your browsing and searching experience more pleasant and efficient. Many things have changed, so we are here to guide you in the process of becoming familiar with our new features. The following section is an overview and description of the ins and outs of using our site. We hope you enjoy our new home; any feedback is greatly appreciated!
When first arriving to JKFindings.com you will be presented with our main page that links to all functional areas of our website.
Our top left sidebar is dedicated to product navigation. You see the main product navigation headings, which include: Gold, Silver, Silver Filled, Gold Filled, etcetera.
You can click on each main heading to expand the list to see further sub-headings containing their associated products. Any category with a white arrow beside it can be expanded.
Our product navigation is structured like our catalog; each heading has a sub-heading which eventually leads to a specific product. If you want to save time and bypass this navigation, you can type a keyword (name, number, etc.) into the search box in order to bring you right to your desired item.
Aside from searching, you have the choices of either solely using the sidebar to find your product, or clicking on the associated pictures that appear in the body of the website after you select a main heading. Either option will lead you in the same direction; it is up to you whether you would like to search for your product textually or visually. You are also able to do an 'advanced search' by clicking on this text next to the search box. If you select this option you will be able to search by item number, product name, description, or category. With advanced searching, you are able to combine two or more search filters.
Regardless of the method you choose, when you arrive at and click on the product you are looking for, you will be brought to the product page listing variants of that specific product (metal type, size, style, etc.).
Our product page gives you all the information you need to know regarding your selected item. First, it will allow you to get a larger view of the product in order to inspect all of its details. Simply click on 'view larger image,' to get a close-up look. Next to each product image you will see a description of the item, the item number and the inventory status. Below the product image we have tabs to access a description, specifications, related files, reviews, accessories, and user review.
If you are logged in to the site, additional options will appear on the product information pages: availability, tell a friend, compare, add a review, print this page, price alert, and add to favorites.
Account Creation and Use
To create an account please contact us via email or telephone. Once you have an account you can login by clicking the 'login' button at the top of the page.
After logging in you will be brought back to the main page.
Making an Order with your Shopping Cart
One thing you should notice when you login is the shopping cart items in the top right corner. Clicking this box will display buttons that will allow you to review your shopping cart.
Once you begin to add items to your cart a shopping cart summary box will also appear in the bottom left column of the webpage. The items in the shopping cart box include a display of your cart total and a link to go to the check out page.
This box will show you the items in your cart, the total price of these items, and a link to the check out page. The cart display on the homepage will update each time a new item is added into the cart.
When you have logged in, and you have navigated to your desired item, you will be able to add it to your cart by clicking the green 'add to cart' button that will appear next to your product.
Before you add an item to your cart, be sure to input the order quantity you desire. Be mindful of the minimum order quantities; if you do not input the minimum requirements you will receive an error message.
When you are ready to checkout you must go to your shopping cart.
Here you will see the name, price, availability, order quantity, and cost of each item you have chosen to purchase. In the shopping cart you have the options to either save your cart for future use, print your cart, update your cart (change order quantity/delete item), or checkout. When everything looks the way you want it to, click on the green check out button to begin the submission of your order.
After clicking 'Check Out,' you will be brought to our one-step checkout page that provides an order summary and asks for your billing and shipping information. If you have a coupon to apply to your order, please enter it in the 'Promotional Coupon Code' field and click 'submit'.
When you create your account you provide us with your billing information and that will automatically show up on the page. The billing address is not editable; you will have to contact us to change it. You will; however, be asked each time to provide your shipping address. If you would like your shipping address to be used in the future, check the 'save for future' checkbox below the shipping address block. This will automatically store this information in our database for future use. To select a previously saved shipping address, click the 'ship to' dropdown menu located at the top of the shipping address block, and select your desired address. One of the options in this drop down menu will be "use billing address." Select this option if you would like to copy the information from your billing address as your shipping address.
The next section will ask you for your preferred shipping and payment methods. The available shipping methods are located in the first dropdown box. The entire page will refresh to reflect your selected shipping method, although shipping costs will be calculated at a later date.
Your payment method reflects your credit terms with us. To change your payment method, please contact our credit department. A PO number, requested ship to date and order comments are optional. Click 'submit' to process your order.
A confirmation page will be displayed and an email will be sent to you confirming receipt of your order.
Managing Roles & Account Options
Our new website is constructed in such a way that it grants different levels of permission to different users from the same customer card (your company). Some parts of our website will be restricted to certain users as outlined in the following section on account options.
Click the gray "person" icon in the top right corner of the website under the metal markets to logout or view your account options.
Note: Menus may differ depending on your permissions.
This page contains the main details of your account, and is the location at which you can edit them.
This page displays your name, email address, username, and allows you to modify your password. There is also a check box that if checked, identifies that the account is active. For security reasons, it is recommended that new customers go to this page first to change their assigned password to something more personal.
Selecting Order History will bring up the Order Summary Page which will show your 25 most recent orders.
Each order will have the order number, date, and status listed in the order summary chart on the page. There are 7 possible statuses of an order:
- Submitted: The order has been submitted from the website.
- Pending Approval: The order has been submitted from the website, but is pending approval.
- Approved: The order has been submitted from the website and is accepted.
- Denied: The order was submitted from the website, but denied or cancelled.
- Denied and Resubmitted: If an order has been denied approval, it can be resubmitted for an approval from the website.

You can change your viewing option by selecting the drop down menu that appears at the top of the page.
You can select a previous month or choose to see all of your orders.
You are able to click on a past order to see the specific details of that order. On the details page you are presented with a listing of the items you previously ordered, and you are able to select any or all of the items to add them to your current cart. This is very beneficial if you are going to place an order similar to a past order or you wish to ensure reordering of the correct item number.
To save your cart, simply select the drop down menu below your cart. Choose to overwrite an existing cart or save a new cart. To save a new cart, select 'Create a new saved cart >>' and enter your new cart name, then click the green 'save cart' button.
Once you save your cart it will show up on the main saved carts page.
If you wish to access a saved cart, click on the listing and select 'use saved cart.' If you wish to delete a saved cart, again, click on the listing first, and then select 'delete saved cart.'
Your wishlist page will show the wishlist groups you have created from a personal, company, or sales perspective. Toggle between personal, company, or sales wishlists, if applicable, in the upper right hand of the wishlist page. Any user can delete a personal wishlist; permission must be granted in order to delete a company or sales wishlist.
In order to construct these groups you must type in a new group name in the blue 'new group name' box in the middle of the main wishlist page and click 'add new group.'
Once you have created a group (wishlist) you are now able to add items to it when on an item product page. On the item page description box there will be a button called 'Add to favorites' that will allow you to save the current item in a specified group that you have created.
Once you have added an item to your wishlist, a notification will pop up under the item photo. Click the notification to go to a page where you can 'add checked items' to the cart, or 'delete checked items' from the group.
Selecting customer info will allow you to manage the details of the customer card you belong to if you have "modify existing customer" permission. You are able to edit all customer details, and can also check the credit limit balance, add a new shipping address, or add a new contact account for your company.
On the manage approvers page, if you have the necessary permission, you are able to create a new approver. You must provide the approvers: web contact, max amount, max line amount, max unit price, name, and whether or not they can approve non-contract items. After filling in this information, check the 'in effect' checkbox to confirm and click the yellow submit button.
When selecting approve orders, if you have the necessary permission, you will be able to see the orders that need to be approved. You can then select the orders that need approval, and respectively begin the approval process.
Depending on the permission granted, you are able to view two reports. If you have "view and execute the accounts receivable report" permission you will be able to view your accounts payable report. You can select your desired report by choosing an aging method: transaction date, due date, or document date. If you have "view and execute the sales order status report" permission, you will be able to view the order status report. Click on the respective boxes to open and generate the reports. You may then click on the 'printer friendly version' button to print a copy of what you desire.
