Longstanding Amazon Insurance Information
Effective September 1, 2021 Amazon WILL enforce the long-standing insurance requirement that a Professional Seller Account with sales over $10,000/month will be required to have an insurance policy on file. This has always been in the Terms of Service Agreement, but never enforced by Amazon.
Included in the new requirement it states that the seller shall:
Obtain a Commercial General Liability policy of at least $1,000,000
That policy must also include Products Liability coverage (Products/Completed Operations)
Be an Occurrence Form Policy
Company Rating of A- or better
Must cover all sales from products listed on Amazon
Name Amazon.com Services LLC and its affiliates and assignees as additional insureds
If a deductible is included it shall be less than $10,000
With every requirement comes things you need to know
Sellers must comply by September 1, 2021.
Sellers who are under the $10k per month threshold may still be required to get insurance.
Amazon, MUST be included as an additional insured and notified within 30 days if the policy cancels or expires
