Can you select Insurance to be applied to only Domestic or only International shipments?
At this time, no; however you can use bulk select option, select all domestic or all international and apply insurance preference that way instead of having to do each one separately.
If you want carrier insurance from UPS / FedEx covering the entire order amount, click on “Rates&Options” and choose Carrier for Insurance.
USPS Priority Mails may have $50 - $100 value automatically covered by USPS. However if account is using negotiated discount pricing, direct USPS carrier insurance may not be available for this shipments because USPS requires that postage must be displayed on the label to purchase insurance.
When you use Endicia/Stamps USPS account with discounted rate. You would not be able to purchase Carrier insurance (which is directly purchases with USPS online sevice).
In this case, we recommend you to use Teapplix insurance instead.
If you have a lost/damaged package, and did not purchase Teapplix insurance, you may file a claim directly to USPS. If it is approved by USPS, the approved insurance amount will be paid directly to you.
