One app to cover all your Shopify® shipments.

Discover the brighter side of shipping with InsureShield from UPS Capital.

As more merchants make the move to online selling and e-commerce, the need to guard against risk is becoming more prevalent.

The jump in digital activity means more goods are in transit, prompting companies to look for a shipping insurance solution tailor-made for the digital marketplace.

InsureShield™ shipping insurance is the solution that fits the demand. It’s all-risk coverage powered by UPS Capital Insurance Agency, Inc. and available to Shopify® users. Because InsureShield is not carrier liability, but actual shipping insurance, it offers merchants the assurance that they can recover from shipping losses with reimbursement for the full value of the goods, plus transportation fees. It also has a provision to cover the mysterious disappearance of goods after delivery including porch piracy—a problem that has frustrated many e-tailers shipping to residential addresses.

Other benefits InsureShield delivers to Shopify® merchants:

  1. Ultimate flexibility on what to insure based on amount, product or location
  2. Quickly processed claims with most claims paid in 4 days or less
  3. Comprehensive coverage that eases shipping anxiety regardless of which carrier you use
  4. Coverage for expedited reshipment up to 20% of the value of the goods
  5. 90 days to discover concealed damage
  6. Helps enhance post-purchase experience in the wake of a loss

While all that is of great value to most businesses, one the biggest benefits is the simplicity of InsureShield.

Upon set up, merchants simply indicate which values they want to cover. They can set rules based on SKU, order value or location (domestic or international). For example, you might want to insure goods based on customer order values of $50 or higher to protect your exposure if a package is lost or damaged. Setting this business rule is easy and can be changed as needed.

Move to the brighter side of shipping with InsureShield. It’s simple, free to download and will give you and your customers more confidence with every order they make.
