Company

EZ Gold Exchange is your premiere precious metal purchasing partner.  We started off in 2009 to help a friend roll-out gold-buying services in 40 locations across Texas and Oklahoma.  We quickly found there was a need for better POS software and more complete services than was currently on the market.  Bringing decades of precious metals purchasing experience from the pawn industry along with technology experience, we set-out to build our own Software (‘GoldSoft’), training systems, logistics, processing, on-call support, consumer marketing services, and much more.  With much thought, effort and some luck, we turned out what our clients tell us is the best Gold-Buyer POS Software on the market, and the best and most comprehensive end-to-end services available to enable retailers to add this lucrative product to their locations.  Since then, we’ve grown from 40 affiliate locations to over 2000+.
