i have notcied more and more that people are stating in listings that insurance must be taken when items are sent through the mail system, i thought it was the sellers perogative to ensure delivery but it seems people are inserting clauses in to listings to exonerate themselves from ooss or damage is this true ?

I think with PayPal the buyer can make a claim against the seller up till 90 days! and the onus is on the seller to prove p&p, so I think it's only fair for sellers to ask for recorded delivery etc ...( helps get rid of scam bandits ).

Same thing in my opinion.

Sellers are not allowed to charge extra for insurance, and no it means nothing regardless of what the seller says, it is their responsibility and all the jargon is useless if you use PP, and they cannot prove delivery.



sellers are allowed to charge insurance, there is a bit in the listing that you can make insurance optional or required its up to the buyer to look for this!!

They are NOT allowed to charge for insurance in regards to the op and those circumstances, again read the op.
For one if they are a business seller it's in breach of the dsr's,
The seperate charging of insurance may be an offence under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.

Offering insurance implies that the consumer is liable for risks in transit which is not the case.

Misleading actions.

A private seller can charge insurance, but unless it's incorporated into the price, they CANNOT make the buyer pay extra, or else. Insurance is for a sellers benefit and PP will rule in favour of the buyer, no insurance or not. No way would any savvy buyer pay a private seller for insurance.


Legally, if a private seller offers insurance and you refuse it's your fault for not taking it. Business sales are different. So in effect paypal are breaking the law refunding private sales if insurance is offered and not taken.

Try listing something on ebay then, there is a part that you can make insurance REQUIRED! which gets added on automatically when you send an invoice to the buyer.
