So, you have finally done it, your store is set up, it’s ready to go, your products loaded, payment gateways sorted, all seems very straightforward and to be honest it is, but that’s the easy bit out of the way. With the months of planning products for your website, the excitement of seeing your hard work come to fruition there is just one thing that is essential and that is Shopify Sellers Insurance.
Do I need Shopify Sellers Insurance?
Being blunt.. yes!
Shopify Sellers Insurance isn’t something you just buy off the shelf, if it was it probably wouldn’t have that name in any case. However, do you really need cover if you have a Shopify site?
Do you need cover, well there is nothing that says you must, should you?? Well of course yes!
As a responsible online seller whether it’s your website, or you use one of the many platforms available today, the owners or operators of these sites are not going to protect you should something go wrong, and something going wrong could be if the user of your product was injured or the product caused a loss then, unfortunately, you will be the first in line, not Shopify, not any other third party platform.
When you sell a product your customer quite rightly will come back to you, and in a world where taking legal action is increasingly easy and in many cases free, what have your customers got to lose?
Let’s turn this around a little, if you bought a product from a website and that product either broke and caused injury or it was from a website that sold the latest drinks that made you very ill what would you do, you would firstly complain to the supplier and then perhaps take legal action against them.
Selling your products is no different so with Shopify insurance is essential as it is on or any other platform, it is you that would be on the receiving end of that complaint.
