As an Amazon business owner, I know that building a legitimate online business doesn’t happen overnight: through sweat and tears, I’ve worked hard over the years to see my business grow. That’s why I want to protect my Amazon business with insurance. But the first time I called an insurance agency, they clearly had no clue about what I do. Luckily, there’s Ashlin Hadden, the founder of Ashlin Hadden Insurance who’s dedicated to educating her clients and guiding them in protecting their most valuable assets. Ashlin and her team specialize in helping Amazon sellers of all experiences, from beginners getting started with wholesale bundling to experienced Amazon sellers looking to expand to offer their own private labels.

Ashlin joins me today to explain why Amazon sellers need insurance providers who specialize in working with Ecommerce businesses. She discusses why Amazon business owners need insurance and describes how “general” liability is different from “product” liability. She reveals the best time to buy an insurance policy and the kind of insurance Amazon sellers need. She also illustrates how easy it is to apply for an insurance policy and highlights how and why insurance companies protect businesses from loss.

“The best time to buy insurance is before you even ship your first item.” - Ashlin Hadden
