Cathy!!! I am excited about the insurance. I get the paid postage online, except when I needed insurance, and drives me crazy to have to stand in a long postoffice line just because you can't get insurance online through usps.
I looked at the site you recommended, but would you mind telling me more about the insurance? Do you print something up to put on the package? And if I am understanding it correctly, it's .50 for $100 and then .50 for each $100 value after that? (or was it .75... I can't remember) Anyway that's a big saving over the postoffice insurance. Have you had to make any claims yet? If so,was the process pretty easy?
Thanks so much, this is great news!
