Absolutey love this !

Review:I use this insurance on many of my items, they have great customer service. I am so glad that they are available to us.

Excellent claims service from Shipsaver with a very difficult buyer
by: Review created: Oct 23, 2015
Review:My buyer received an item that was damaged in transit and because it was insured I initiated the claims process.  My buyer absolutely refused to assist me in filing a claim for the damaged item. According to my buyer since I bought the insurance she didn't feel the need to do anything and wouldn't complete the documents to verify the claim.  I don't know why because the claims process with Shipsaver is so simple.  Once they verify the claim the insured is reimbursed.  It's nothing like other carriers where you wait weeks to get a response.  When you contact Shipsaver you get an immediate email response to your inquiries.  Shipsaver did process the claim without my buyer because I had the documentation that the item was damaged.  What's really impressive is their turn around time. Other companies don't provide such speedy claims service. It is easy to reach someone by phone if you need help.  I love Shipsaver and will use them for all my insured packages.

A valuable tool for many online sellers
by: Review created: Oct 19, 2015
Review:I've been using Shipsaver for three years and it was only a matter of time before filing a claim became necessary.  There weren't many steps on my (the seller's) part, and it was simple for my buyer as well.  Turnaround on the claim was quick - just a week or so from claim to resolution!  At one point I needed to contact customer service with a question and the the rep was friendly and answered my question satisfactorily.  Insurance is one of those products that you infrequently see any benefit from but when you need it, it well might end up paying for itself.

New auto refill and paypal fees added to Insurance Cost
by: Review created: Oct 16, 2015
Review:I've been using ShipSaver and promoting it on YouTube for several years and though I've never needed a claim, always felt it was the best offer for third party shipping service.

However, now that ShipSaver is adding the PayPal fees 30 Cents plus 2.9% for the shipping insurance to the Insurance costs that pretty much brings it only a little under eBay's shipping insurance for USPS.    Unfortunately, the new transaction fees that ShipSaver (as all vendors) have paid on their PayPal transactions are being put onto the ebay seller, I think this was a bad decision.  That's like me telling the person who buys from me on eBay that they have to pay the seller's transaction fees.  You would of been wiser to just raised your prices and embed the fees.

I also do not like having to leave a balance on account with  ShipSaver which auto refills from PayPal funds.

You should have made this a manual balance instead of auto Transfer.

Sorry, I won't ba able to use or recommend this service now.

Very Positive

Review:My experience was great. I filed the claim and aside from a little hiccup from the person at the other end, it was quick and painless. IE I did not have to devote extra time to solving issues, your people handled it.
