WHAT DOES AMAZON REQUIRE?
In order to sell in Amazon stores, you need an Amazon Selling Plan. These plans allow you to sell products on Amazon and come with strict guidelines for how to prepare to sell. Before you can begin selling products, you need to provide Amazon.com with proof of Commercial Liability Insurance. Amazon states:
“Sellers with professional selling plans on Amazon.com must provide proof of Commercial General Liability insurance. This insurance, obtained at the seller’s expense, shall cover up to $1,000,000 per occurrence and in the aggregate and must include products liability, bodily injury, or personal injury, property damage, and other requirements as stated in the Participation Agreement. The insurance must indicate that ‘Amazon.com, Inc., and its affiliates and assignees’ are added as additional insureds.”
Three important things:
- Amazon needs you to carry General Liability Insurance.
- They also want you to be sure that Product Liability Insurance is included in your policy.
- They need you to list them as an Additional Insured on your policy.
WHAT WOULD INSURANCE COVER?
General Liability Insurance protects your business in the cases of bodily harm and property damage. This is for slip-and-fall incidents as well as if someone were to be injured due to your business operations or if you were to drop a box of product and dent the floor, general liability could cover any legal action or medical bills.
Along with being insured against bodily harm and property damage, you also need to have insurance for your products. If someone were to purchase an item from you and that item caused them bodily harm, then you could be on the hook for any legal fees or medical bills on their behalf. With product liability insurance, you have peace of mind that your products are insured.
