What is Route?

Route is a free plug-and-play shipping insurance app for Shopify merchants.

We make it easy for your customers to purchase shipping insurance on their order for a fraction of the cost of the cart value.

As a business, you no longer have to worry about refunding orders which aren’t delivered for customers who choose to insure their order through Route.

Simply click “Add App” to sign up for the service. No coding is needed and setting up Route takes minutes.

How does it work?

After signing up with Route, you can either choose to have us install the code for you for free or someone on your team with very limited development experience can do this easily.

As part of the checkout process, customers can select Route to secure their order in one-click.

Customers receive a confirmation email from Route that they are protected and gives them a link to file claims.

If for whatever reason the order does not reach the customer, your product gets damaged before arriving at the customer or gets stolen from their porch, the customer can claim a refund from Route.

How do I get started?

To get started, click the button labeled “Add App”. If you’re logged into Shopify you’ll be asked to authorize the connection between your store and Route. This allows us to install our widget on your cart page.


  1. How does Route calculate how much to charge customers? The amount we charge is calculated using a number of variables from type of product to the past history of similar businesses. Customers typically pay around one percent of the cart value.

  2. Who is underwriting Route? Route is backed by the Lloyds of London group.

  3. How long does it take Route to process claims? We respond to claims within 24 hours and do our best to process/payout claims within 5 days.

  4. Is there a contract, or can I uninstall at any time? You can uninstall Route at any time. If you do wish to uninstall Route, you can do so by clicking the delete button within your apps section, you will also need to unpublish/delete the Route product as well from your store.

THE BEST insurance option I have used, ever! So happy I am able to offer this to my clients. For just a minimal fee, their entire order is insured. As a small business, I can’t stress how helpful their service has been.
Installation was a bit over my head, as I
am not tech savvy. No problem, within a few days, Route admin had fully installed their app into my site.
Now here comes the best part; they actually follow through & back up their guarantee! Unfortunately, in the past, I have had other insurance providers fight any claim I’ve ever made, with a lengthy difficult process, and generally little to no reimbursement. I recently had a package get lost in the mail. After confirming with USPS, I filed a claim with Route. Within 12 hours, it had been resolved, start to finish! I cannot stress how wonderful their customer support is ( Thanks Alex!), as well as their service! I highly recommend Route, and will continue to offer this wonderful option on my website!
Thank you from Gemstoned Jewelry


The easiest and best thing we could have done for our site. Gone are the days of having to deal with the touchy verification of customer insurance claims. Route was up and running on our site within 48 hours. Since implementing, Route has improved our conversion rates, while providing our customers (especially those overseas) with a greater sense of purchasing confidence.

This app just doesn't care for customers. Even though it is a free app and will get paid and they rejected by saying After careful consideration, we have decided that insuring your orders given that it is a newer store with high average order value and low volume(this is not really true) would pose too much risk to Route.
