-It's fairly inexpensive. For $200 of coverage it's maybe 3-4 bucks. (if that)

RE: Question on shipping insurance
It goes up by value, but anything worth under $200 is pretty reasonable. No matter how much it costs, it is cheaper than replacing the product if something happens to the package. If you are shipping to Canada, however, forget everything I said.
