Payment to Seller

Payment is only released to the Seller 72 hours after delivery. If your purchase does not match its cataloguing, please contact us within this time frame. Gembridge charges Buyers and Sellers commission, which is included in the gross price listed. Secure viewing rooms and other services can also be arranged, and a Gembridge escrow account is available for high-value purchases.

We look forward to you trading with trust.
