International postage insurance from Australia is very expensive, costing at least $90 to have a small parcel item fully insured and tracked.
To lessen the cost to you, I have capped my insured international postage at just $50.
If you still feel this is too expensive, please convo me and then I can send it as a regular item for just $10, but understand that it will have only $100 (Aust) cover if it gets lost.
