Pay-As-You-Sell Insurance: Changing the Game for eCommerce

Insurance Basics, Amazon Insurance

Just as Blockbuster couldn’t keep up with Netflix’s digital prowess, traditional insurance is struggling to match the dynamic world of eCommerce. The outdated practice of yearly projections can leave you exposed, either drowning in excessive premiums or vulnerable to inadequate coverage. 

Enter ‘Pay-As-You-Sell’ – the Netflix of e-commerce insurance.

The Inefficiencies of Traditional eCommerce Insurance

Traditional insurance models often require sellers to make yearly projections and engage in guesswork to determine their insurance requirements.

As any eCommerce business owner knows, without a crystal ball on hand, this projection is almost never correct. And you may be wondering, “Well, what’s so bad about that?”

Getting this projection wrong can lead to severe vulnerabilities:

  • Over-insurance: You’ve paid too much for your liability insurance, impacting what was already a tight profit margin and of course, insurance firms do not offer refunds on your insurance premiums 

  • Under-insurance: The insurance you’ve taken out covers a specified number of units, turning the joy of surpassing your projections into a situation that could put your eCommerce business at severe risk of financial loss if a claim were made

To add to this risk, traditional insurance models often require sellers to pay their premiums upfront or finance them with high-interest premium financing – only adding to the strain on your business.

Introduction to Pay-As-You-Sell Insurance

Enter Pay-As-You-Sell (PAYS) insurance – a game-changing solution designed to evolve with a seller’s actual sales. 

Unlike traditional insurance models, PAYS allows eCommerce sellers to pay their insurance premiums on a monthly basis based on actual monthly sales. If you have a great month, your eCommerce insurance cost goes up to ensure every single sale is covered. If you have a bad month due to anything from supplier and shipment issues to seasonal demand, you pay less. 

PAYS is designed to adapt to a seller’s actual sales. This means that as your business grows, your insurance coverage grows with it – this eliminates any risk of under-insurance and ensures you are always adequately covered.

This approach offers flexibility and peace of mind, as sellers only pay for the coverage they need when they need it.
