Online Retail Insurance is an important consideration for any internet website based ecommerce business who are selling, importing and exporting products worldwide. Online Retail Insurance is a specialist package of covers which have been tailored specifically for ecommerce businesses.
What is online retail insurance?
The main element of risk that online retailers face is in relation to Products Liability insurance. This covers the cost of compensating anyone who is injured by a faulty product that your online business designs, manufactures or supplies.
If you sell products online you will be held responsible for any damage or injury resulting from their use, even if you sell on Third Party social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, online marketplaces like EBay, Amazon, Etsy, NotOnTheHighStreet and finally online hosting platforms such as Shopify.
Even if you have not manufactured the items yourself, you could be held liable for a compensation claim if the product bears the name of your business or where the manufacturer cannot be traced.Whether you are selling products within the UK, USA or globally, online retail export supply chains can often be long and international. In addition, if you cannot identify whether or not the manufacturer has ceased trading, you can be held responsible for any of their products sold by your business.
