Yes! When you purchase insurance for the first time through XCover, their team will send an activation email request to the email account associated with your Shippo account. Please note, this initial email is only sent for your first shipment. Once your XCover account is activated, you will be able to access all insurance-related information. To get started, simply find the confirmation email from XCover in your inbox and click the link to set up your XCover Account.

What Email Account is my Insurance Policy Connected To?

When you buy insurance through Shippo using our third-party provider XCover, the insurance policy is linked to the email address entered in the sender's shipment details during label creation. All activation emails and other policy-related correspondence will be sent to this email address. If a sender email is not provided when creating the label, the policy will be connected to the email address of the Shippo account holder on record.
