How is Foxquilt's eCommerce Insurance Tailored for Etsy Sellers?
Etsy General & Product Liability Insurance
Who Needs Etsy Liability Insurance?
Currently, it's not required for Etsy sellers to have business insurance.
That being said, we still recommend any business owner - whether they have a brick-and-mortar business or if they're on a marketplace platform like Etsy - to have insurance. As soon as you start selling a product or a service to the public, you are open to liability. The reality is that, as a seller on Etsy, you can't always guarantee that a customer won't have an allergic reaction or accidentally damage something in their home - having business insurance gives you a way to mitigate that risk.
Examples of Etsy Insurance Claims
Etsy 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; for example, if your homemade lotion gives a customer a bad allergic reaction or if someone alleges your candle started a fire in their home.
CGL can also help cover allegations of libel, slander, defamation and advertising injury.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are You Required to Have Etsy Seller Insurance?
Etsy does not currently require sellers to have business insurance, but we still highly recommend considering insurance regardless. A recent 2019 study has shown that the number of product liability claims has been increasing around 20% each year since 2011. Having insurance is a crucial step in protecting your business, your craft and its growth - especially if you're a new business owner. Having a claim early on in your online business without insurance could stop it in its tracks.
What Can Affect the Price of Etsy Liability Insurance?
Here are the factors that typically affect the cost of insurance for Etsy sellers: the type of products you sell, if you're using third-party manufacturing and/or shipping, the customers you sell to and where they live.
