Can I cancel my order?
Once we have issued a confirmation number, all prices are locked-in, whether buying from us or selling to us. It is not our intention to enter into buying and/or selling transactions, accepting the risks involved only to have them canceled. However, we realize rare situations happen where orders need to be canceled. Should you elect to cancel and/or offset your order, you must do so during normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (EST) Monday – Thursday or 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (EST) Friday. All cancellations are subject to our Market Loss Policy plus the greater of $50 or 5% of the order total fee. Cancellations may only be approved over the telephone. At that time, if any market loss to APMEX has occurred, it will be calculated and added to the greater of $50 or 5% of the order total cancellation fee. If applicable, any cancellation fee and/or market loss will be charged to your credit card for the full amount due, as per User Agreement. No future orders may be permitted until any market loss is paid in full. Any market gain on cancellations shall remain the property of APMEX.
Additionally, APMEX is not responsible for any change in the Bitcoin exchange rate at the time of your order cancellation. All Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash refunds are issued through BitPay at the USD rate at the time the refund is processed. APMEX is not responsible for any change in the Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash exchange rate at the time of refund. Refunds for returns are not processed until after the returned item(s) have been received and verified.
