How does it work?

XCover’s Total Shipping Protection includes protection for lost, stolen or damaged parcels.

The coverage amount is equal to your order value (in other words, sale price) and starts when parcels leave the originating address. The rate to protect a parcel is 1.10% of the coverage amount for domestic shipments and 1.50% for internationally shipments.

The protection can be canceled anytime before the parcel leaves the originating address. Coverage begins when the shipment leaves the originating address and ends when the recipient receives the shipment.

You’re covered if…

Your parcels are lost, stolen or damaged during transit.

If parcels are lost, stolen, or damaged, XCover will also pay costs towards:

  • Return shipping. These are the fees paid to carriers to have damaged parcels returned to you.
  • Re-shipping of replacement parcels. These costs are paid when the new delivery is arranged through ShipStation.
  • These shipping costs are paid in addition to your coverage amount and exclude duties and taxes. There is no “excess” or “deductible” to pay.
