As most of you have already noticed, the United States Postal Service has released a rate change effective January 27th, 2013. Besides the increase in the rates for shipping and extra services, they increased their default liability coverage for Express Mail International shipments. Each shipment of merchandise is now covered for up to $200.00 against loss, damage, or missing contents. This is an increase of $100.00. Remember: Individual country prohibitions and restrictions apply.
Domestic shipments sent via the Express Mail service continue to receive $100.00 of free coverage from the USPS. This change is only for International Express Mail shipments.
