Hi,

I am not aware if this has been posted before but I think it is a good idea to bring it to everyone's attention that a FREE certificate of posting covers you for ?36 I was told by a postmistress (though it doesn't stipulate the exact amount on the receipt) as compensation for the loss of the parcel/letter.

I am letting you know this because several of the people I have swapped with for large amounts of mocs have told me they have used either registered post or recorded delivery to send them to me, both of which are quite costly.

I hope this helps all the swappers.:)

PO won't cover you for mocs, cash or gift vouchers
You have to send via registered to be covered:(

Well it just says cash or valuables on the certificate. How do you know? Has someone lost any in the post and tried to redeem the loss?

What do they compensate for then? If we know this then perhaps we can be compensated for something THEY lost in the first place. Why should we suffer the loss?

I have lost moc, gift voucher and cash but was unable to claim
I have claimed for Ebay items that have been broken in transit.

cert of posting definitely doesn't cover you, and rec delivery is the biggest rip off ever, because you have to pay for that and it still doesn't cover you.

I have also been a victim (as an ebay seller, sent coupons recorded delivery) and tried to claim from the PO but to no avail :(

I just mean that if we knew what they do actually compensate for then there is nothing stopping us from claiming that that is what we lost as it is the VALUE of our mocs that we would want to reclaim. I haven't not received anything and all my mocs etc have been received but it could happen!
