Will I receive paper statements in the mail for each transaction I make?

By default, Kitco does not send paper statements or invoices. Instead, we maintain a 24-month record of all your transactions online. You can easily view a printer-friendly summary of any transaction from this record by simply signing into your account.

If you still wish to receive paper statements, please sign into your account, click the "My profile" tab, scroll to the bottom of the page, select "Yes" as your answer to the question, "Would you like to receive a paper statement?" and then click Submit.

Will my account be closed if I no longer hold a balance on it or if I have not made a transaction recently?

Kitco will close your account only if it has been inactive (i.e., if you have not bought or sold anything) for a period of five years and if there are no funds in the account. Once a Kitco account is closed, it cannot be reactivated. If your Kitco account has been closed, you will have to open a new account to buy or sell any products.
