The platform helps businesses provide post purchase shipping warranty options.
Many merchants may be confused about the differences between shipping warranty and insurance, as both serve a similar purpose – namely, to protect them against any potential losses due to carrier delays or damaged goods. While they do have similarities, there are key differences that make each one more suitable for different situations.
Shipping Warranty: Shipping warranties are contracts between the customer and a merchant that guarantee the quality of their services under certain conditions. These contracts offer merchants protection from various risks such as late delivery times and damaged goods, as well as coverage for their own liabilities in case of an issue with the shipment. Typically, these warranties will include support for same-day claims processing, customer service, cost savings solutions and enhanced accuracy.
Insurance: Unlike shipping warranties, insurance is purchased independently from a provider and covers a specific risk or set of risks related to the transportation of goods.
Shipping warranty provides more comprehensive protection than insurance while being cost effective but may not cover all potential risks
– whereas insurance tends to be more expensive but offers greater overall coverage.
