Shipping Insurance for eCommerce Sellers

Teapplix ActionShip users enjoy a full featured shipping and inventory platform with over 50 marketplace integrations. This allows retailers and shippers the ability to tie into multiple channels and ship their merchandise from a single, consolidated solution.

Even though most users know about the time savings that ActionShip provides, many are missing out on the integrated shipping insurance product offered within ActionShip. Partnering with Shipsurance, ActionShip provides discounted shipping insurance options to all of their U.S. based customers. This often overlooked piece of the shipping process can save shippers thousands of dollars in shipping fees and provide a simple claims process if something is damaged or lost in transit.

The shipping carriers offer declared value protection for your shipments that are often costly and the coverage is contingent on proving they are at fault if something happens. Third party insurers, such as Shipsurance, provide full, all-risk coverage for your packages in transit, often at a fraction of what the carriers charge. Not only is it more cost effective, shipping claims are typically paid within a week!

Some of the benefits of using ActionShip’s built in insurance offering are:

Lower Rates – Save over 50% off of the carrier declared value costs. Cover shipments sent via DHL eCommerce, DHL Express , FedEx, FedEx FIMS, FedEx SmartPost, OnTrac, UPS, UPS Mail Innovations, and the USPS.
Broader Coverage – Coverage is all-risk with easy to read and understand coverage rules.
Real Insurance – The carriers declared value coverage require you to prove carrier negligence. ActionShip’s insurance solution through Shipsurance do not require proof of negligence.
Claims – Handling and managing claims through the shipping carriers can be an eye opening experience. When insuring through ActionShip, the paperless claims process can be streamlined with the entire lifecycle usually lasting less than one week. You will deal with a personal agent that will be courteous and helpful thought out the process.
Automation – Using ActionShip’s automation rules, shippers can set the system up to automatically cover outbound packages based on specific rules, making training new users a piece of cake.

Retail ecommerce sales are expected to hit $4.1 trillion by 2020. Selling online is a channel all retailers must follow and using ActionShip as a shipping platform will take care of the shipping side of the business. Along with the built in shipping insurance coverage, retailers can make sure their shipments are covered while in transit and that they will be made whole again if something happens to the packages while they are in transit.
