HOW TO PAY
Auction results are available at cowans.com on the day of the sale.
Invoices for successful bidders are emailed or mailed to successful bidders within 72 hours after close of auction.
Payment is due upon receipt of your invoice. Cowan’s accepts cash, check, wire transfer, ACH payment, Visa, MasterCard or American Express.

Successful bidders are charged a buyer’s premium, an additional percentage added to the hammer (winning) price.
Total purchase price = hammer price + buyer’s premium. The buyer’s premium from one auction may differ from the buyer’s premium of another.
All sales to Ohio residents are subject to a state sales tax, unless the buyer provides a valid vendor resale certificate.
