Care by Zinc enables online merchants to seamlessly offer product insurance and warranty plans to the customers for their products.


Back to top

Care by Zinc is an insurance API developed by Zinc Platform that allows online merchants to offer product insurnace to their customers without dealing with any technology, accounting or legal heavy lifting. Zinc's Magento plugin interacts with our pricing server to display real time quotes on merchant website and allows customers to submit insurance applications based on their purchases for eligible products such as musical instruments, jewelries and bicycles. 

Upon installation, you will use the admin dashboard to tag SKUs from your store that you want to enable the insurance option for. Once the setup is completed, real time quotes will be displayed on the product profile pages and cart pages for those SKUs. For example, we may display a quote of $50 for a $3,000 violin, to cover lost, theft and damage for one year. All the information about the policy will be viewable through an info link available to the customer. See screenshots or checkout our website for more details.

The customers will have the option to add those insurance products to their shopping carts by checking a simple checkbox. They will pay for the insurance, along with the other items in their cart in a normal checkout process. You will collect the premium on Zinc's behalf. Through the Zinc account that you signed up for, every week we will bill you for the premium and send you the lead generation fee through ACH (for more details please talk to our sales team).

Zinc supports musical instruments, bicycles and jewelries at the moment. As we add more verticals we will make them available through the Zinc Admin dashboard on the Magento plugin.

A separate Zinc account is required to use this service. Sign up today! The extension and the service are free, but we woud require an online account for ACH transactions. Learn more about how the product works here.
