I sell only high end items, most over $500.00 but UPS and FEDEX will only insure international shipments for a maximum of $500.00. How do most of you ship when you are selling higher end items internationally?
I would also recommend using USPS Global express mail. As others have mentioned, the insurance maximum depends on the country, but most places you can insure much more than $500. Also, USPS does not charge the high broker fees some of the other couriers do.
