What was your experience with our paydirt?

Dave Varabioff - Mlgdave


I was frustrated with there not being a reputable and reliable gold nugget and paydirt seller online. In 1999 I saw a need since Ebay wasn't willing to stop fake gold nuggets from being sold to consumers. Goldbay was created to be able to provide what was missing. 19 years later we are still going strong

Customer relations

I know that there are times when Dave gets too busy and "drops the ball" with getting orders out and answering questions. I have taken over as the Customer Relations and complaint department. Feel free to hit me up in the chat app and I will make sure we handle your issues as fast as we can!


All was well Dave. Just ordered 6 grams of nuggets from ya today. Thanks as always for the nice gold! - Steve - May 12/2020

super....5.17 grams..was so easy to see just dry pan all that was needed. 6 nice pieces of bright yellow gold. Have a great day..stay safe. - Patrick Lawlor - May 12/2020

You did pretty good.

From my order on 4/26/20, bag I of 2 was nice.

I recovered 4 nice nuggets and the rest was around -12 mesh.

Will review on the site.

Starting bag # 2 today.

Thanks. - Carl Erbe - May 10/2020

Exactly what you order. Always a great deal. Gold is a great investment. Gotta keep busy during the quarantine. My wife is as good as me panning the micro pieces out of the black sand. 

Going mining in a couple of weeks. I’ll be all warmed up. Practice helps me keep up my speed when my gold club starts doing shows again. When we will be teaching kids how to pan.

Thanks for a great product. - Bill Krause - May 10/2020

First, my apologies for the lengthy review. I think it’s important to share my full experience of Goldbay products and service.

As an avid gold prospector enthusiast, whom has found it difficult in the past year or so to go prospect, I thought I would “cheat” and purchase gold paydirt. I tried a few online resellers and had an ok experience. With further research I came across several articles on Goldbay. All positive, so I thought I would give them a try.

I purchased a small amount of paydirt to see if their “guarantee” was genuine and the service matched the reviews. It certainly did…

I went back to the Goldbay website to purchase additional gold paydirt and came across a 55lb gold paydirt, 6.25 oz guaranteed, less than spot price offer. There was also an offer to load additional gold into the paydirt. I went for the maximum additional 5 oz. Now I appreciate this is a lot, but saw it as an investment.

Within 5 minutes of placing the order, Dave Varabioff (Goldbay owner) called me, great friendly guy. We talked for 15 minutes about his business and the purchase process. I received text messages, emails and calls throughout the delivery process. Amazing customer service, again I appreciate it’s a large amount to purchase and we both were being extra diligent, but I truly believe Dave (Goldbay) provides this level of service regardless of amount purchased.

Within 5 days the paydirt arrived. 

Not only did the paydirt arrive, I got two personal embroidered jackets (my wife and I) and two caps. Nice additional touch.

First, I found 1.2 oz nugget, I believe it’s the largest nugget found in purchased online paydirt – Thank you Dave/Goldbay!


It took me three days to go through the 55lb of paydirt, and I was not disappointed with the finding.

Not only did I received the “guaranteed” 11.25 Oz’s, there was an additional 11 grams. The gold coloring, size and purity was amazing. Hopefully the picture gives it justice.

If you ever wondering where to go to purchase gold paydirt, I can say from my own honest experience, Goldbay is the place to go. 

  • Customer Experience A+
  • Value for money A+ (below spot in some cases)
  • Quality and size of gold A+
  • Dave Varabioff A+

Best experience ever!

Hi Dave,I was completely satisfied with my purchase.  I found some nice small nugget and a bunch of chunky gold.  As always, my bag contained more than was promised.  Thanks again for providing just what was advertised. Stay well, - Mike - Texas Pan Handler - May 8/2020

 Hey Dave, I just wanted to say thanks again for a quality product. Those little pickers in there are chunky and rough and thick, for sure natural gold not that hammer mill crap! This was my first bag of paydirt, it was quite enjoyable and relaxing. My son had a fantastic time uncovering the gold from the black sands, I'll keep my excess material incase I missed anything, but I think I got the most of it! Great looking pieces for sure, and a nice looking piece of wire gold too. Very cool experience. 

I dont have a scale so I dont know how much is here but from what I've watched on kleshguitars and others, it sure looks like more than a gram to me! Thanks Dave, I'll be ordering from you again in the future, only with more trust and patience. - Stewart Keeney - May 8/2020

Hey Dave! Just wanted to thank you ! I bought a bag of paydirt , this is the first time I ever had gold in my pan. I’m just getting into panning as a hobby took me 2 1/2 hrs to pan 9lbs!...:) I was shaking and scared I was going to lose it all but I got just a little more than what was promised..Have a great week! You're awesome! - Sincerely Brad from Colorado. - May 13/2020

Everything worked out great, 22.6 grams for a 21 gram jug! - Ken and Ruby. - May 31/2020

Absolutely perfect experience here. 2.01 grams from pay dirt that was moderately easy to pan! - Justin Keith. - May 31/2020

I am very happy to have bought your paydirt. It is exciting just to pour it out into the pan. It's fun to break it down and pan. Getting the nuggets was the best. You live up to your word. The best paydirt I have ever bought. 1.430 grams - Rod A - May 31/2020
