It seems that tariff insurance is free service now. Maybe it has something to do with VIP-level or they are just countering that thievery now when EU-countries collect taxes from orders even cheap ones?

im Vip 3 and tariff is not free.

It was free when I checked. Now it’s again extra fee. I wonder what was that.
I had green FW3A in my basket when I checked that then, now same item, more charges.

I am VIP2 and tariff insurance is lower than before, about 50¢ now.
One of my banggood orders is also lost currently, and I did pay for shipping insurance. Let’s see how that’ll work out.

Has anyone actually claimed on this and got paid out? I suppose that is the more relevant question, do they follow through if you pay it and get charged?

Is any insurance worth paying for? No , unless you need it.

FWIW, BG insurance is just a way to scam customers out of a few extra dollars.

Paypal with side with you whether or not you have the so called BG insurance.

I agree on cheaper items, I’m not so sure they would side with you every time on say a $100 item…..

My latest order came today, i chose the standard express shipping it was shipped via Luxemburg so no signs of it coming from china, no tariff or anything. So never pay extra for that its not needed . I have never been charged import fees before when they had prioirity direct mail.
