If I sell a coin on Ebay say for $1000 or more as it's the buyers cost to pay for shipping how should the coin be insured if Canada Post only covers a max of $500 ? Do you have to ship via ups/fedex etc?
It may be a charge to the buyer , it's on you to get it there. Many different insurance policies are available as per your other post . The companies will gladly take your premiums and will enjoy Kicking the day lights out if and when you try to collect on a claim . They have deeper pockets and fancier law firms than you do . Best advice is insure to the 500 and self insure for the rest Or simply do not sell above your comfort level . Our business is mostly in the USA ( we live near the border ) and there it is much easier to insure coins sent via USPS , up to 10 K USD . Good luck !
I too live near the border and I have heard some Canadians will go over the border to ship goods via usps . I did not know about insurance within usps being available . All I know is CP is not interested .
I thought of that but I guess the reply might be well you still didn't mail it . I do keep receipts from the post office but they don't show the address on them . With registered mail they have to sign but the PO worker doesn't input the address into the computer . Only if you purchase express post .
