Webgility offers Webgility Insurance for shipping, powered by InsureShip, directly within its Webgility application. Now online retailers can save both time and money.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, DECEMBER 09, 2013: Webgility®, a leading provider of shipping and QuickBooks® integration solutions, has partnered with InsureShip™, an online shipping insurance provider, to provide shipping automation and the lowest shipping insurance rates in the market to small- and medium-sized eCommerce businesses.
Online retailers need to protect their shipments, especially during the busy holiday season. UPS® is anticipating over 34 million packages on their busiest shipping day, December 16th. FedEx® expects more than 85 million shipments during the first week of December. With the high volume of shipments, online retailers want to make sure that their packages are shipped on time and are insured in case of damage or loss during transit.
Webgility has helped thousands of online retailers automate their order fulfillment by integrating their online channels with their shipping accounts (FedEx, UPS, Endicia®, Stamps.com® or Express 1®) and QuickBooks. Orders are consolidated in Webgility, where retailers can automatically print shipping labels, track shipments, and record orders and shipping information in QuickBooks. By integrating with InsureShip’s proprietary APIs, Webgility also offers Webgility Insurance for Webgility users. Online retailers can now purchase shipping insurance directly within Webgility, at lower rates than what is offered by FedEx, UPS and USPS.
"We at InsureShip are extremely excited about our partnership with Webgility,” said Walt Moscoso, InsureShip’s VP of Sales. “Webgility customers now have access to InsureShip’s competitive rates, accelerated claims program, and an easy point of purchase all in a single ecosystem. With 13 years of cargo insurance expertise, we look forward to providing an unparalleled experience to Webgility customers."
Webgility Insurance, powered by InsureShip, offers lower insurance rates than the carriers' insurance ($0.80 for every $100 value for FedEx and UPS shipments and $1.25 for every $100 value for USPS shipments). Although FedEx and UPS automatically include some liability coverage, any goods over $100 in value require additional insurance purchases that start at $2.55. Similarly, USPS offers insurance starting at $1.95. Retailers can add Webgility Insurance while processing orders directly within Webgility, and they can apply the insurance to packages shipped with any shipping carrier, making it easier to process and track claims.
“We strive to provide our customers a comprehensive solution to help automate their eCommerce business and save them time and money,” said Parag Mamnani, Founder/CEO of Webgility. “We’re thrilled to partner with InsureShip to offer Webgility Insurance. Shipping is a critical component of online businesses, and we are happy to provide this additional money saving shipping feature, especially during the busy holiday season.”
