Probably one for our yank brothers.

I'm currently trying to buy something from a seller in the states (item value $800)

He's quoted a postage price of $50 (standard) but says he's struggling to find an insurance option for less than about $80. This seems daft. Any suggestions?

with priority intl express the maximum value you can insure for is $650. it would be about $50 and then $2.50 to add $650 of insurance.
to insure over $650 you'd have to use global express which would cost about $118 depending on the weight.
