eBay sellers have always been the responsible party when shipping a package to their buyers. If something goes wrong in shipping they must make their buyer whole again. Shipping insurance is the best way to protect the seller from mishandling by the shipping carriers.
eBay sellers have a great resource in the ShipSaver Insurance App. It was designed specifically for eBay sellers to insure their shipments sent via the USPS, UPS, and FedEx. The coverage is underwritten by Lloyds of London and administered by Shipsurance.
How Does It Work?
Visit the eBay Apps Center (http://apps.ebay.com/) and find the ShipSaver Insurance application. Click “Try it Free” and you are off and running. It will then be available to you under the “Applications” tab in “My eBay”. ShipSaver will display your eBay transactions and allow you to insure them individually.
The rates are extremely affordable for piece of mind and can save you more than 65% off of the carrier rates. Even First Class International shipments can be covered for the great low price of $1.00 per $100.00 of coverage! That is less than the eBay ShipCover Insurance. Payments are made via PayPal and run directly through the eBay application billing system.
When the inevitable shipping insurance claims need to be made, ShipSaver is there for you. Claims can be filed electronically and are typically settled within a week.
Alternative shipping insurance for eBay sellers is available to all US based sellers vis the ShipSaver Application. Give it a spin here.
