    If this project were done with some enthusiasm, that million would look like pocket change.

    Some day you'll learn that a dollar is a dollar no matter which country your in, all commodity's are based on the US dollar,

    Using a service like paypal you can pay for an item in the currency of your sellers preference to suit his/her country's currency that is used on a daily basis without having to pay an exchange rate on the financial institution.

    The values quoated are in US, it's the only currency I recognize when I'm on the internet.

    With the spread in our dollars this makes for an ideal situation for any Canadian to be selling on eBay and elsewhere. Bring on the gold.

    From the assay we then can determine the value.

    Perhaps APA the forums most knowledgeable cat buyer will step up to the challenge, his good will would show the world what this forum is all about, scrappers helping one another.

    Try sending him a direct message. Just posting it in a forum post he might not ever see it unless he stumbles upon this forum post by chance. If you direct message him (even just to say hey can you look at this forum post) it might get his attention.

    I know nothing about cat. converters, so am of no use unfortunately.

    But also... this is a forum of people who are on here by choice, to offer help when they can and if they want to. Saying things like "Waiting for someone to answer me!" seems rude, you're not owed an answer by anyone on anything. I am sure when he or someone with cat. knowledge sees the post, they will answer!

    On the forum thread below members openly discuss prices they're receiving for boards.
    https://www.scrapmetalforum.com/e-wa...ne-boards.html

    I'm not about to send APA a private comm, I do not do business with people who have to hide behind a veil of secrecy which arouses ones suspicion of deceit.

    We often hear from forum members claiming to have received excellent prices from APA, whats to say these transactions are not loss leaders.

    Below replace "discount" with bait.

    Same deal with those bags of river gravels ( Pay Dirt ) people buy in hopes of finding a few flakes of gold, the most rewarding sales the seller is able to make go to some forum member.

    The member receives a salted bag, he brags on the forum of his good fortune - cheap promo for the seller.

    Loss Leaders: When you know that certain products are in demand. Whether it's a luxury item like an iPad or everyday need like undergarments, you can provide certain products at a steep discount to draw new customers to your store. Known as loss leaders, these products are great for selling overstocked items, increasing traffic to your store, and generating brand awareness.

    It's an open secret that I can at times be rude, its one of my character flaws I have and consider it to be one of my best attributes..

    Its ironic that you warn me that I might get sued (for telling the truth) but here you are making negative statements about me.

    If I have tried to pull any “loss leaders”, “salted bags”, “veil of secrecy” or “deceit” to any forum members, please let me know. I am not that type of person and I don’t do business that way.

    My good will shows the world what this forum is all about, scrappers HELPING one another.

    I am paying $16 per lb on domestic foils and $21 per lb on foreign foils. Just trim to about 1”
    of the foil, no need to de-can the foil material. This is my price as of today, market conditions may make the price go up or down.

    Peace and love to all the GOOD members.

    Your advertised prices are far better than some of the others around the net are offering.

    Yes I see platinum once again is on the rise,and that $10,000. troy ounce for rhodium not to far off the mark.

    Platinum 1015.00 -4.00
    Palladium 2227.00 +7.00
    Rhodium 7400.00 0.0
