| p.1 #13 · Buyer or seller pay for insurance on shipping |
Selling is about initial price offer. If my price is high compared to the next guy because I've included shipping and insurance and the other guy is lower because he says " we can work out the details" , who is a prospective buyer going to contact first? It also gives the buyer more of a choice. Additionally I can't be sure of what the cost is going to be. Big difference shipping next door compared to across the country.
That's a good point Mickey. I will point out though, that insurance is provided only to the original shipper, not the recipient. Any claim would have to be recovered through the person shipping the item. So, as a buyer, I never even bother to ask if the gear will be insured. If it shows up damaged, I want my money back from the seller, not UPS, USPS or FedEx. If I'm the seller, I insure it.
