Introduction of “nShift Insurance” supports the 57% of online shoppers who expect full refunds on damaged goods
LONDON, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Some 57% of online shoppers expect a full refund if their package arrives damaged. With over half of consumers receiving damaged goods each year, online retailers risk significant revenue loss to replace and reship those items if accidents happen during the delivery process. 
nShift, the global leader in parcel and delivery management software, and Cover Genius, the insurtech for embedded protection, today introduced nShift Insurance, which can provide shipping insurance for one billion shipments from European merchants.
The embedded protection solution, enabled by Cover Genius’ global distribution platform, XCover, allows nShift’s online retailers, brands and webshops to replace items that are lost, stolen, or damaged in delivery. This will help them deliver better service to their customers, build loyalty, and encourage repeat purchasing.
Online retailers and carrier companies typically take great care to ensure that customers receive their items in great condition. But accidents happen.
nShift Insurance addresses this problem and is available starting with nShift Transsmart as of today. Through XCover, the insurance offers vendors and shippers:
Simplified, carrier-agnostic, global protection covering available carriersGreater customer loyalty through a seamless claims process that has proven to reduce end-to-end claims finalizationCost and time reductions – Cover Genius’ streamlined approach to protection is up to 20% cheaper and up to 20 days faster than insurance from logistics carriersNo minimum wait times – XCover has reduced claim times making it possible to start investigations without having to wait for carriers marking parcels as lost or damagedInstant payouts – XCover aims to complete 95% of claims within three days of claim filingReimbursements equal to the full retail value of lost, stolen, or damaged goodsTailored protection options that can be attached in-path or at an account levelConvenience – fully embedded into the merchant’s working processes (such as booking and label printing) Maarten Tops, Transsmart Product Director at nShift, said, “nShift Insurance will help our customers improve the experience they give their customers, build loyalty with shoppers, and grow their revenue.
“Partnering with Cover Genius enables us to offer efficient, end-to-end and scalable protection solutions in new markets around the world. It will help retailers and webshops protect themselves from inevitable accidents. It gives shoppers confidence in the delivery process and strengthens trust between vendor and consumer.
“In today’s online shopping environment, giving both retailer and shopper confidence in the delivery process is essential to delivering ecommerce success.”
Justin Turner, Vice President, Global Partnerships – Shipping, at Cover Genius, said, “We are proud to become nShift’s exclusive global insurtech partner and look forward to serving their ecommerce companies across Europe. We have co-created protection solutions that will help their merchants reduce claims processing times and fees leading to a better shipping experience for them and their customers. The AI-backed solution makes it easier to offer total shipping protection customised to each merchant, each purchase and reduces shipping barriers for millions of shipments, wherever they want to go.”

Its range of solutions enables online retailers and webshops to build an end-to-end delivery experience from checkout to returns. nShift connects its customers to the world’s largest carrier library, featuring over 1,000 ready-made carrier connections. nShift Insurance will be available on other nShift platforms in the coming months.
Cover Genius partners with the world’s largest digital companies to distribute protection via its XCover platform, which enables companies to embed and offer any line of insurance or other type of protection solution directly to their global customers with a single API call.

Time savings are based on average resolution times (i.e. the duration from initial filing to completed payment) for all XCover shipping protection claims as at May 31, 2022 (sample size = 868) compared with the industry average time including payment settlement (min. 6 days) and period to acknowledge a filed claim.
