How is Foxquilt's eCommerce Insurance Tailored for eBay Sellers?
eBay General & Product Liability Insurance
Who Needs eBay Insurance?
Currently eBay does not require its sellers to carry business insurance like other marketplaces do.
That being said, we still recommend eBay sellers and other marketplace sellers to consider insurance since there are so many moving parts and opportunities for liability when it comes to eCommerce. Between product liabilities and cyber risks, it quickly becomes impossible to guarantee having no business risk; carrying insurance gives you back control to mitigate risk and liability.
Examples of eBay Insurance Claims
eBay Commercial General & Product Liability
Unfortunately, you can't be there with every customer that buys one of your goods to make sure they're using it correctly or safely. Commercial General Liability can help provide coverage for the cost of legal fees or medical bills if your product causes a bodily injury or property damage. Additionally, CGL can help cover allegations of libel, slander, defamation and advertising injury.
