Catawiki & Cover Genius simplify secure shipping for unique objects

trade finance

This partnership aims to make sending valuable and unique items, both across the country and around the globe.

Before now, Catawiki sellers faced the arduous task of navigating different insurance policies from various carriers, a confusing and inconsistent business. Thanks to this collaboration, sellers can now access Cover Genius’ tailor-made insurance directly within the Catawiki platform during shipping.

“This partnership takes the sting out of complicated claims procedures for sellers,” said Janet Baireva, vice president of products at Catawiki. “It also helps build customer loyalty by reassuring buyers that their purchases are safe and sound.”

The key advantages of this innovative system include:

  • Exemplary claims processing: Cover Genius boasts a remarkably efficient claims system, facilitating same-day payments or reimbursements for approved parcel claims, expeditiously processed in over 90 global currencies.
  • Cost-effective solutions: Cover Genius’ innovative approach demonstrably offers cost savings of up to 20% compared to traditional carrier insurance, ensuring optimal value for sellers without compromising on security.
  • Empowered sellers: Sellers retain autonomy in selecting the level of protection that best suits the specific needs of each item, enabling informed decision-making and peace of mind.
  • Seamless platform integration: The entirety of the process, from insurance acquisition to claims management, is conveniently transacted within the Catawiki platform, eliminating the need for juggling multiple websites or navigating cumbersome email threads.

This partnership tackles a long-standing challenge for Catawiki sellers and could attract new users by fostering trust and security in the platform’s shipping system.
