The insurance policy provides loss of income and extra expense coverage for online sellers in the event they are suspended by the online vendor for ANY REASON other than:

  1. Any losses occurring within the first 120 hours from the inception date of the policy OR where the insured does not exceed either the franchise deductible or the waiting period.  The date of such losses shall be determined by the issuance of an inquiry or notice of suspension by the online vendor; and

Program Details

We offer up to 90 days of protection in a year with limits up to $1,000,000 and a zero-dollar deductible. 

Instead of a dollar deductible we utilize a time period to serve as the deductible.  This means the period of time shown in the policy must lapse before you will be eligible for coverage.

In the event your online sellers account is suspended, the insurer will pay you up to the per day limit shown in the policy subject to the franchise deductible or waiting period.

Claims Process

If you do not do all of the following your coverage will be void.

  1. Submit your claim to US by logging into your account (www.onlinesellersinsurance.com) and complete the form found in the claims section of our website.
  2. Provide US with a copy of the inquiry or notice or notice of suspension from an online vendor within 24 hours of receipt by YOU; and
  3. If you are already suspended, you must hire a professional expert/consultant within 24 hours of receipt of the suspension notice.  These experts/consultants will evaluate your case and attempt to help you get reinstated.

Once we are in receipt of your claims notice, we will assign a claims representative and they will be in contact with you within 24 hours and they assist you every step of the claims process.

Q & A

I am new in business

We understand and you may still be eligible for coverage depending on our underwriting questions.

What if I have had a past inquiry or suspension?

You may still qualify for coverage depending on the answers to the underwriting questions we ask in the application process. 

Am I covered for more than one suspension?

Yes, provided you are not suspended for the exact same reason AND you have not exceeded 90 days in the policy period.

How long is coverage valid for?

The policy period is an annual period of time, however, the policy will only pay up to a total of 90 days in the policy period.

How will I know what time period must pass before coverage is available?

Depending on certain underwriting criteria, the policy will either be issued with a franchise deductible or a standard waiting period and the policy will state the specific amount of time that must pass.

What is the difference between a franchise deductible and a standard waiting period?

A franchise deductible states the total number of days your sellers account must suspended.  Once that period of time is exceed and there is coverage, then the insurer will pay the per day limit of coverage for the entire period of time your sellers account was suspended up to 90 days.

A waiting period states the total number of days your sellers account is must be suspended.  Once that period of time is exceeded and there is coverage, then the insurer will pay the per day limit of coverage only for the number of days the account remained suspended after the time period was exceeded and only up to 90 days.

Can I use my own professional expert/consultant in the event my account is suspended?

Yes and we will also provide recommendations if you are not sure who you should hire.

Can I purchase coverage if I am outside the United States of America?

You must have a USA business entity and appropriate licenses to conduct business in the USA.  We will be launching our program in additional countries in the upcoming months.

Who actually is the security of my coverage through and who will pay for my covered claim?

Insurance is secured with a tried and trusted AM Best A rated carrier.

Will you cover the cost for me to hire professional expert/consultant in the event my account is suspended?

For a covered loss, we will pay up to $500.00 directly to the person or company hired.

How will my coverage limit be determined?

The limit of coverage will be determined by us based on the answers to the underwriting questions we ask of you during the application process.

How is the per day limit chosen?

Depending on the overall coverage limit you qualify for, that limit will be divided by 90 days to determine the coverage per day limit.

Is my policy auditable?

Yes, we will ask you for your gross annual sales for three specific categories at the end of each policy period and before you will be eligible to renew your policy.   It is imperative to be truthful when informing us of your annual gross sales at the time of application.  If you underestimate you will have a balance due to us that must be paid to us within 30 days of expiration of your policy or before we will renew your coverage.

If you overestimate your annual gross sales, then we will refund the appropriate amount of premium back to you within 30 days of the expiration of your policy provided your policy was not issued at our mandatory minimum policy premium.

What if I have more than one online storefront?

If you operate more than one storefront under different names, you will need to purchase a policy for each business entity you operate.

Does this policy provide any other coverages or benefits?

No.  The only coverage provided under this policy is your potential loss of business income and extra expense provided your online sellers account is suspended and it is a covered loss.
