Thank you so much for getting back to me. I realize how stupid I sound about this -- but what's making the matter all so much for is: I've just been listing/selling things for apprx. 2 weeks. Not only am I new to using Auctiva for listing, but also new to selling on ebay in general. (been a user/buyer for years, but never listed/sold anything).
Anyway, all has been going well for the past 2 weeks -- until this hiccup. The person has already paid invoice and paid for the insurance on it. (They checked out on ebay -- I think that's how anyone who buys any of my auctions must be using ebay checkout, not auctivas).
Anyway, as soon as I got the paypal receipt re: buyer's payment and ins. on this item, I automatically got an email from auctiva on my next steps re: the insurance. I'll copy/paste the email I got from them below.
BUT here's where I'm sure how really stupid I sound. I do not understand what happens with this, why, etc. I don't understand why I'm paying auctiva for this insurance and I don't understand how the post office will know that this package/item has insurance. I know, probably really stupid questions.
Anyway, below the red line is the email I got from auctiva:
