Do I need insurance if I sell products online?
If you sell products online, you’ll want to ensure that you and your goods are protected. The correct online retailers’ insurance can offer cover for theft and damage of stock, the safety of those who purchase your products and your business should anything go wrong with the items you sell.
Despite not having a physical shop front, by selling products online, you are still predisposed to issues common to retailers and shops. Having online retailers’ insurance can mean the difference between your business surviving or not.
One small claim can cost your business a significant amount of money. Having the correct retail insurance policy in place provides you with peace of mind that you’re protected should anything go wrong, leaving you to get on with running your retail business.
What is Retail Insurance?
Retail Insurance is cover to help protect your business, employees and products when you sell items across any digital or physical platform.
Even if you don’t sell a large number of products, it is still important to protect yourself from the risks that can come with manufacturing, possessing, storing and sending products.
Retail Insurance can include cover that suits your business and help cover unexpected costs from issues that might arise from selling items. It can include cover such as Employers Liability Insurance (which is a legal requirement if you employ any people in your business), Buildings and Contents Insurance, Business Interruption protection and Product Liability Insurance. If you sell specialist or niche products, we can provide Specialist Retailers’ Insurance, designed specifically for your individual requirements.
The teams at SJL Insurance Services design policies specifically for your business, ensuring you’re only paying for the cover you need. With nearly 20 years’ experience in business insurance, SJL Insurance Services have the expertise and knowledge to help you choose the best insurance policy for you.
