develops new alert features and banners to help precious metal investors better track coins, bars and other available products

Dallas, Texas – February 18, 2013 – Over the last five years, interest in gold coins and other precious metals have skyrocketed. Dealers have either been established or expanded to meet this new demand. New investors in gold, silver and other precious metals often possess little experience with buying physical metals online. This fact along with its mission of providing an easy and secure way to invest in precious metals prompted Provident Metals, a north Dallas-based gold bullion dealer (, to offer a new “alert” feature and banner system for different gold coin, silver coin and other bullion products on the site.

The new “ALERT ME” feature is now available for registered customer accounts and allows a customer to subscribe to a “product alert” for a particular item on The new feature notifies customers when their selected product becomes available via email. Customers can modify and manage their alerts by logging into their account and visiting the MY ACCOUNT Dashboard. A customer must have an account setup through to take advantage of these alerts. Setting up an account is free, but required for purchases and for the use of some site features.

“The idea behind the “ALERT ME” feature was borne out of fulfilling our company mission of providing a seamless bullion buying experience for all investors,” comments J.W. Haugen, Vice President of Sales for Provident Metals, LLC.

A new banner system is another feature being added to the online store. Any visitor to the site will be able to easily see the status of a product by way of a colorful banner across the top right of the listing. Banners include:

  • Out of Stock
  • Coming Soon
  • Stock Delayed
  • Pre-Sale

“These new banners, while eye-catching, do not overwhelm users when they view our online catalog. They allow customers to see what’s in stock, what’s not, and what we’re expecting to have available in the near future,” explains Haugen. “From here, customers can easily subscribe to a “product alert” and learn when their desired coin or bullion product becomes available for purchase. No more having to spend precious time checking back on a daily basis.”
