I thought some of you would want to know about this. I sent a package to Canada last week. It was priority (my box), insured. The cost was a bit over $20, and it weighed just over a pound, Today, I brought a small flat rate box to the PO, to be shipped to Canada. I wanted to insure it. The guy tells me it will cost over $20. I tell him that the USPS site said that since it's priority, I should be able to insure it, as I did the previous week, and that it should cost about $10 (USPS site said so). He tells me that no insurance is available. So I didn't send it. Instead, I went to the USPS site again, and tried to generate a shipping label for small flat rate priority box to Canada with $50 insurance. As you might expect, it worked with no problems. Anyone know what the story with this is? I spent a lot of time trying to explain things to the guy, but he insisted that he was right.
