    Business Insurance Required for Small Ebay Business?

    Business Insurance Required for Small Ebay Business? 16th Sep 19 at 1:07 PM
    Hi

    I am looking to set up as an Ebay Business seller to deal only in stamps. This would be run from home, involving just myself and one room of the house.

    Therefore, I am wondering whether I need separate business insurance for public liability etc as there will be no interaction with customers except for dealing with them via ebay message and to send their goods. Any disputes would be dealt with via ebay resolution/Paypal.

    Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    What do you want the insurance to cover?
    Thrifty Till 50 Then Spend Till The End

    You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time

    Well I believe my home insurance covers the amount of stock I would be holding for business so I am just trying to find out whether I need any insurance to deal with 'customer's issues' but I don't really see that there is anything that could arise as I won't be meeting any of them face to face/in my house etc and any problems will be dealt with via Ebay/Paypal.
