    Gday stackers!

    I have just started out, I'm living on the Gold Coast and hopefully moving to NZ South Island with my family when the 'bubble' opens..

    Hoping to take over some silver while I still have consistent work! Have bought a little from GBA Miami

    Got a couple of questions if you can help that would be awesome.

    1. Reading through the trading forums what does 'bump' mean? I don't use social media so unfamiliar with some terms...!

    2. Would you recommend starting out with just face to face deals until I'm comfortable with the process? - know exactly what I'm getting etc

    3. Anyone know of other good places to buy on the Gold Coast?

    Thanks!

    Bump brings the thread back to the top of the boards and makes the thread more visible.

    Welcome -

    You can learn a lot with F2F transactions and meet cool people. Check the sellers feedback and activity on the forum if buying off the site.

    I’d go to Brisbane if buying from a dealer personally.

    I’ll be posting some silver later today if that’s your thing.

    There seems to be a lot of stackers in your area, so you may not need more dealers other than GBA. Just keep an eye out for silver stackers selling in your area and maybe use GBA occasionally.

    A warm welcome from across the ditch and nice to see you are intending to come and live here in NZ - stock up on the winter clothes

    May I suggest you drop Dragafem a PM as he is on the GC and I'm sure he would assist you

    Cheers

    Your profile handle will be appropriate as low temperatures in winter but usually great summers . Will be a big adjustment compared to Queensland and what you experience there
