I am a new seller; can I apply for coverage? Yes. There is no time frame for which you must be in business before applying.
How long is coverage valid for? The policy period is for one year. You may apply for 30-, 60-, 90-, or 180-day coverage if you desire. The policy will pay up to the selected daily amount.
Who provides my coverage and pays for my claim? Insurance is secured with the oldest insurer in the world with a financial rating of A+.
How much coverage can I purchase? You may apply for coverage limits up to $50,000, $100,000, $250,000, $500,000, or $1 million.
Will I be paid a lump sum based on my coverage limit? The insurer will pay up to the maximum amount per timeframe you have selected. The insurer will not pay out more than the realized loss sustained or limit selected.
Can I purchase coverage if I am outside the United States? You must have a U.S. business entity and appropriate license to conduct business in the United States.
Does this policy provide any other coverage or benefits? No. The only coverage provided under this policy is your loss of business income and extra expense in the event your online sellers account is suspended.
What if I have more than one online storefront? If you operate more than one storefront under a different business name, you will need to purchase a separate policy for each business entity.
Do I have coverage for more than one suspension? Yes, provided you are not suspended for the exact same reason AND we have not already paid you for your maximum days of coverage in the policy period.
Is this policy auditable? Yes. It is imperative you be truthful as you answer all questions when applying for coverage. If you underestimate your annual gross sales, then you will be responsible for an additional premium at the end of your policy period. If you overestimate your annual gross sales, we will refund the pro-rata portion of premium to you provided your policy was not issued at our minimum policy premium.
I have had an inquiry or have been suspended before. Can I still get a policy? Eligibility and price are determined based on information provided during the application process. Our underwriting team may ask for information and documentation to determine if you are eligible for coverage.
When will I know my coverage is in effect? Once you apply for coverage online and pay for your policy, we will immediately issue your policy.
How will I receive my policy? A copy of your policy will be emailed to you.
Does my policy have a deductible? There is not a dollar deductible. There will be a period of time you must wait after a claim, before this policy would take effect.
What is a standard waiting period? A standard waiting period is 120 hours from the ordered suspension from the online vendor. Losses will be reviewed with potential payout after the waiting period has been met.
How do I determine what my per day or overall loss is? Calculate your anticipated net income (net profit or loss before income taxes) earned or incurred and your anticipated operating expenses, including payroll.
