Yes, and they all seem to charge a $5 to $9.95 fee for the service of putting gold in your account?  Maybe I'll check a few more off of that list.  Do you have an egold account.

Thanks for helping me out,

>all seem to charge a $5 to $9.95 fee for the service of putting gold in your account?
That is very much expected ...

From the FAQ ...
<quote>
There can be no debt or contingent liabilities associated with e-gold. For this reason, e-gold Ltd. does not possess any national currency of any nation and has no bank accounts.  Thus, e-gold Ltd. is not able to offer currency exchange services.
</quote>

Any third party which mediates transfer between you and e-gold is going to charge service charge as it has nothing else to gain

>Do you have an egold account.
No

OK, so I am looking for the cheapest exchanger.  It seems that IceGold adds 2% to the exchange rate, which for small purchases would be less than $5.

Thanks for continuing to help me out,

I would recommend reading reviews on the web about each mediator ... cheapest might not be the best ... saving 2-5$ might not be worth spending hours wondering where your money went ...

I have myself spent 10-15% extra in terms of service charge to get prompt and hassle free service.

Still, I will keep looking for a cheaper alternative for e gold

You are right ... Ice Gold does seem to be the cheapest option available ...
Here are a couple of links that you should check out

In summary the fees vary from 1% to 5%, all depend of the method of payment selected and the amount and the type of currency involve.

We don´t charge any "fee" for ordinary transactions when you buy e-gold. ....

Read the entire page carefully

Cheers!
