Payments can be made at any time during the loan or paid all at once at time of pickup, but must be paid prior to the end of the 90 days in order to maintain ownership of your pledge/pawn. Only cash payments will be accepted.
At the end of the 90 days, if the principal and interest are unpaid, ownership of the pledged item will be transferred to Tapper’s Gold Exchange. If the interest has been paid, we can offer you a renewal, which extends your loan for another 90 days.
The value of your item is calculated based on the current market value.
Tapper’s Gold Exchange accepts several types of personal assets as collateral for your loan, including fine jewelry, gold & precious metals, diamonds, gemstones, and timepieces.
