Shipping Insurance Costs

Shipping Insurance is an optional service that you can add to all the shipments you create with Easyship.

This service will cover up to USD $5,000 per parcel. Insurance costs will vary depending on a number of factors including the chosen courier, the destination address, item category, and declared value. However, the fee is typically 1% for domestic shipments and 1.5% for international shipments. By default this is calculated using the total value of the shipment (customs value plus shipping cost), but can be customized in your insurance settings.

On the value of your items, you can choose to insure based on:
- The selling price of the items
- A fixed value (eg $100 for all shipments)
- A percentage of the selling price.
 
You can also choose whether you want to have the value of the shipping cost covered by the insurance.

For more information regarding shipping insurance and how you can apply it to your shipments please refer to the following guide.
