Product liability insurance for Amazon sellers

Whether you use Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) or Fulfilment by Merchant (FBM) to deliver your products to customers, Amazon Canada requires all sellers to carry insurance if they earn $10,000 in monthly sales, or otherwise upon request.

Product liability insurance is designed for any business that sells, manufactures, or distributes a product to consumers. It is essential coverage for third-party sellers in the Amazon.ca store because it protects against claims from customers alleging property damage and bodily injury for any product you sell, manufacture, or distribute to consumers.

Yes. Amazon requires all sellers to carry liability insurance if they earn $10,000 in monthly sales or otherwise upon request. Although not a requirement, Amazon does recommend coverage for sellers below $10,000 in monthly sales. Amazon seller insurance purchased through Zensurance helps Canadian sellers meet Amazon’s insurance requirements with:

  • A policy with a limit of at least CAD $1 million per occurrence and in aggregate, and cover liabilities caused by or occurring in conjunction with your business operations, including products, and property damage and bodily injury.
  • The insurance policy type can be either commercial general liability, umbrella, or excess liability and be occurrence based.

A comprehensive insurance for Amazon sellers policy purchased through Zensurance will typically include the following coverages:

  • Commercial General Liability (CGL) Insurance: As an Amazon seller, you conduct your business online. CGL insurance, or general liability insurance, protects you against the day-to-day risks that can happen when interacting with third parties, such as claims of bodily injury or property damage.
  •  Product Liability Insurance: Product liability coverage is a must-have for Amazon sellers. It is typically included in a CGL policy, and it protects against claims alleging third-party property damage or third-party bodily injury caused by a product you manufacture, distribute, or sell to a consumer.

Amazon sellers can expect to pay anywhere from $400 to $3,000 per year for a commercial general liability insurance policy with a $2 million limit, but the precise amount you pay is based on several factors, including:

  • Your business’s location
  • The products you sell and where they are sourced from
  • Your annual and projected revenue
  • Your years of experience
  • How many employees you have (if applicable)
  • Any previous insurance claims you may have made

Zensurance provides sellers with customized insurance at exclusive prices to protect them from risks posed by selling in the Amazon.ca store.
