Cost & how it works


On-line appraisals are $35 (Canadian), plus $4.55 HST (tax) per item if you live in Ontario, or the tax applicable to your province if you live elsewhere in Canada. This will be 5% GST if you live in a province that does not have HST. (A matching pair of vases, a pair of candlesticks, salt and pepper set etc. are all considered a single item.)

Payment is made through PayPal, which accepts all major credit cards, and is a world leader in secure online payments. Appraisals are usually completed within ten business days. (If John is unable to appraise your item, the payment will be reversed and you’ll be notified.)

How it works: 4 easy steps

  1. Fill in the appraisal form
  2. Upload the photo(s) through the form
  3. Submit your information
  4. After your form is submitted, click the Pay Now link to submit your payment to PayPal.

Once your payment has been processed, John will prepare your appraisal. You will then receive notification by email where your results can be viewed. You will be able to download, save and print your appraisal.
