How insurance for eBay traders works

As a professional eBay seller you might already understand the need for an eBay Business insurance policy. As a home worker you cannot assume that your existing home insurance policy will protect your business activities. Your stock and liability covers may not be insured leaving you unprotected should the worst happen.

Luckily, we source online traders business insurance policies that are designed to be flexible, allowing you to put together a bespoke business insurance policy that covers exactly what you need giving your online business essential cover in one insurance policy.

What your eBay Business Insurance policy can include

Public Liability & Product Liability cover

Public Liability & Product Liability cover can be included within your business insurance policy. Product Liability is not a compulsory class of insurance, although legislation says that the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and the EC Directive on Product Liability (25/7/85) does require those manufacturing and supplying goods to carry some form of Product Liability insurance. The Insurance Octopus sources internet trading insurance that includes this as an integral part of an Internet Sellers insurance policy.

Legal Expenses cover

Legal Expenses cover protects your business should a claim be made against you and you need to pursue or defend your claim.

Goods in Transit

Goods in Transit cover protects against damage to items that are purchased from you and in the course of transit to the customer.

Employers Liability cover

If you have one or more employees then by law you are required to have employers liability insurance. This cover is a standard £10m and will protect you (the employer) against claims from your staff if they are hurt when working for you. Employers Liability can provide cover for up to 5 employees.

Why you need eBay business insurance

If you work from home and you own an online business, make sure you are protected. Many business owners assume that their home insurance will provide the right business insurance cover, but this is often not the case. Your stock and liability covers are unlikely to be insured, leaving you unprotected should the worst happen and home working can dramatically impact your home insurance. Having an internet selling business requires investment in time and money and this is why it is important to have a comprehensive tailored internet traders business insurance policy. If your selling volume is low and you sell via Ebay, Amazon or other online selling portals, get in touch today and we’ll find you a suitable policy.
