Partnership benefits

Trust = Customers

Trust underpins peer-to-peer marketplace customer acquisition and growth. Insurance is a key component of trust.

A survey by Lloyds in 2018, found 71% of consumers are more likely to use marketplaces and 70% are more likely to offer services, if insurance is in place.

Insurance that fits

Rental marketplace risks sit somewhere between consumer and commercial insurance. Traditional products are often applied but fit poorly. Thus ShareCover has developed a range of tailored solutions.

Backed by IAG

ShareCover is backed by IAG, Australia and New Zealand’s largest general insurance group. IAG sells insurance under many leading brands including NRMA Insurance, CGU, SGIO, SGIC and WFI in Australia; and NZI, State, AMI and Lumley Insurance in New Zealand.

Marketplace experience

ShareCover’s knowledge of marketplace operations, risk management, and how best to incorporate insurance in the rental process, provides an excellent base forcreating value adding partnerships.

What do our partners say?

“We have been working with ShareCover on a world-first for Canon, Kyoyu - a peer-to-peer marketplace for camera gear. Our initial research showed that our users were most concerned about the safety of their gear. It was clear that we needed to build a community built on trust and in order to do that we needed cover that was specific to our product and easy for our users to understand. The team worked closely with us to create a bespoke insurance product which enabled us to facilitate our pilot launch, this was a critical foundation for us to start learning and shaping our product into the future.”

Anthony Cortis from Canon Australia

“Trust is the fundamental tenet of any marketplace. From day 1 ShareCover has provided us with the support, security and brand backing of Australia’s largest general insurance brand to grow and scale our platform. Their B2B service is a must have for any online marketplace to provide the surety that all customers need.”
