Coverage, Simplified.

Protecting your stuff should be easy, trustworthy, and affordable. 

That’s why we started AKKO. Our plans protect all the personal items and equipment your customers care about and use most against Accidental Damage & Theft.

Customers can add their phone, laptop, & electronics – along with all other items they care about or rely on, like bikes, surfboards, or music & photography gear.

With all items protected on one plan, people pay way less compared to any other insurance or protection plan products available.

No matter what you sell, we protect it.

Join AKKO in bringing a whole new way of protection to your customers.

How do I start selling AKKO Plans?

How do I start selling
AKKO Plans?

If you’re ready to begin offering AKKO Plans to your customers, schedule a call with us to get you set up!

Step 1

We will provide your store with a counter-top marketing display to place by your register which outlines all the coverage info and cost. Then you’ll receive a sheet of activation codes.

If you have an online store you’d also like to sell AKKO plans through, we’ll provide FREE assistance in getting it configured to sell our plan!

Step 2

When a customer purchases coverage, the employee at your register provides one of the activation codes from your store’s sheet to the customer by simply writing it on the customer’s receipt.

If the customer purchases through your website, an activation code is emailed to them.

Step 3

The customer goes to our website, getAKKO.com, and inputs their activation code to register their coverage. That’s it! 

At the end of every month, AKKO sends you an invoice to collect the money for your sales and you retain your cut.

The Retail Details

What you need to know about selling AKKO Plans.

Your store makes 10-15% on every sale of an AKKO Plan.*

Our AKKO Adult plan is sold for $15 per month or $168 for a 1yr plan. 

Our AKKO College Plan is sold for $12 per month or $120 for a 1yr plan.

*The range for your compensation varies on the volume of your sales and hitting certain bonus incentives which we offer. The compensation is a marketing & administration fee and NOT any form of commission. 

Nope! There is no sales tax on an AKKO Plan since it is a service.

The only taxes you will pay is on your income generated from each sale. 

Nope! As a retail partner, you are only helping to market and administer customers’ registrations for coverage. Upon purchasing an activation code for a coverage plan in your store, customers come to our website to actually register their account and activate their coverage plan. 

The marketing material we will provide for you to place at your store’s checkout also contains AKKO’s branding very cleary along with the required disclaimers and notices that a customer needs to see to know who the insurance underwriter and brokerage administrator are. 

Yes! What’s unique and amazing about our AKKO plan is that it is not attached to any individual item. This means that a customer can purchase just an AKKO plan at your store or on your website and then are able to activate their plan and add items they already own or have previously purchased from you to be covered on their plan.

If your site is built on WordPress and uses WooCommerce or if you have a Shopify store, we can set up an extension to let you sell our plan through your store. With every purchase, an activation code will automatically be emailed to the customer.

If your site does not use WordPress or Shopify, or you’re not sure how your website is configured, schedule a call with us and we’ll check out your site and figure out the best set-up for you. We don’t charge anything to get your site ready to sell!

YES! If you’re a shop which offers repair services, AKKO customers can (and almost always do) return to your shop to get their repairs done.

So whether it’s damages to electronics, cameras, music instruments, skiis, snowboards, surfboards, or bikes, you can provide your invoice for repair work to the customer and then they submit that with their claim and receive payment to get the repairs done.

Having your customers carry our coverage can lead to a BIG bump in your revenues from repair work. If customers don’t have insurance coverage and must pay out of their own pocket for repairs for their items, they may often wait off on getting items fixed, shop around for a cheaper place to get repairs done, or decide not to get their items fixed at all.

The same goes for when a customer needs an item replaced due to extensive damage or theft. If they have an AKKO Plan, they’ll have the insurance payout to be able to easily return to your store and replace their items!

NOTE: All plans are per individual and will only cover items that the named individual on the policy owns. This means that if you file a claim, you must have proof of ownership of an item with your name on it (a purchase receipt, billing statement, etc.) Plans cannot be shared with friends or family members. All plans may have up to (1) phone on them. Both must have been purchased by you or are in your name. To cover additional phones, purchase additional adult or student plans.

  • Cracked Screens
  • Spills & Liquid Submersion
  • Accidental Damage (like drops)
  • Damage & Malfunctions from Accidental Damage/Drops
  • Theft & Vandalism
  • Theft of items from an unattended vehicle via forced entry (car break-ins)
  • Fire, Flood, & Natural Disasters
  • Power Surge by Lightning

The deductible for AKKO Adult Plans is $100 for any incident of Accidental Damage or Theft. — Simple and Affordable.

The deductible for an AKKO Student Plan is only $50!

This amount that is “deducted” from any claim payout you receive exists so that individuals are still motivated to be careful with their stuff.

But with an AKKO Plan, we made sure to have the deductibles at least be set at easily affordable amounts rather than the $150 – $400 deductibles seen on many other protections plans for phones, laptops, and other electronics.

The AKKO Base Plans ($15/month for adults, $10 for students) includes $2,000 of coverage PER INCIDENT**. There are no annual coverage limits or a limit on the number of claims you may file.

**$2,000 of coverage PER INCIDENT means that if next week on Monday your phone is stolen, up to the replacement value of your phone is covered as long as that amount is less than $2,000.

If at another point in the same year you drop your laptop and the screen is smashed, up to the repair or replacement value cost of the laptop is covered as well as long as it’s less than $2,000.

But, there is not an annual limit of $2,000 which would be exhausted in case replacing your phone cost $900 and replacing your laptop had cost $1,500.

This demonstrates PER INCIDENT coverage and the per incident limit with an AKKO Plan is $2,000. There is not an annual limit.

HOWEVER, if during a single incident someone steals your entire backpack, filled with your phone, and laptop, up to $2,000 total is covered to replace those items and any other contents of your backpack, plus the backpack itself. So if the combined replacement cost was above $2,000 for all these items, you would only have coverage up to $2,000.

Higher PER INCIDENT coverage limits are available! 

Once you’re registered, you can upgrade your coverage to a PER INCIDENT coverage limit as high as $10,000! But for a more common $3,000 – $5,000 PER INCIDENT coverage limit upgrade, it’s only a couple more dollars per month 🙂

The $2,000 of PER INCIDENT coverage is more than enough for the majority of users based on our studies and the claims rates of currently covered users nationwide. But for those with more expensive items like a high-end laptop, or specialty gear like photography or music/audio equipment, the option to upgrade your limit is easily available. Simply contact us via the “billing” section of your account and we can upgrade your coverage limit.

Other Limitations:
1. Coverage for jewelry, watches, rings, and other items consisting of gold, silver, or platinum or furs is limited $1,000.00 for any one Loss.

2. Coverage for bicycles is limited to $1,000.00.

3. Property in a personally owned automobile is covered, provided that the vehicle was locked and windows are fully closed at the time of theft and there was visible evidence of forced entry into the vehicle.

We re-state all this information under this separate Frequently Asked Question because sometimes users don’t click through all questions/answers and we want to make sure all prospective customers are fully informed 🙂

NOTE: All plans are per individual and will only cover items that the named individual on the policy owns. This means that if you file a claim, you must have proof of ownership of an item with your name on it (a purchase receipt, billing statement, etc.) 

Automobile, motorcycle, boat, motor, aircraft or aircraft parts or any type of motorized land vehicle or other conveyances or their accessories (including car stereos, GPS navigation devices, keyless entry), money in currency or coin, evidences of debt, letters of credit, passport documents, notes, securities, transportation tickets or any other tickets, pharmaceuticals, prescription or over- the- counter, artwork, professional or amateur, antiques or collectables, animals, firearms or ammunition, salesman samples, contact lenses, keys, artificial teeth or limbs, or merchandise for sale, forms of identification, including student ID’s and driver’s licenses.

  1. Coverage for jewelry, watches, rings, and other items consisting of gold, silver, or platinum or furs is limited $1,000.00 for any one Loss.
  2. Coverage for bicycles is limited to $1,000.00.
  3. Property in a personally owned automobile is covered, provided that the vehicle was locked and windows are fully closed at the time of theft and there was visible evidence of forced entry into the vehicle.

If you were to “Lose” one of your belongings, you would need to evaluate the situation to determine if it fell under being theft, or what’s called “mysterious disappearance” (aka, you simply misplaced your belonging and have no idea where it went).

Use tools like Find My iPhone/Android to try and recover your phone, or similar services to track down a laptop/tablet. Take screenshots or record evidence of your attempts to recover your phone to provide the most complete set of evidence you can with your claims.

The coverage you get with an AKKO Plan will cover theft, but will not cover “mysterious disappearance.”

Adult and Student Plan accounts may have up to (1) phone on their account.  To add more phones, you must purchase additional Adult and/or Student Plans.

We offer a 5% discount if purchasing (3) or more plans! After registering your primary Adult Plan, then register the remaining Adult and/or Student Plans you need and then simply email “billing@getAKKO.com” telling us the email addresses of each account you registered. We’ll then apply your multi-plan discount and consolidate all your billing to the primary account holder!

If you need to protect multiple phones for you and your family members, AKKO can give you a discount when you register (3) or more plans!

Each Adult and Student Plan account may have up to (1) phone on them.  To add more phones, you must purchase additional Adult and/or Student Plans.

For a family of 4 for example, with 2 adults and 2 kids, you would register:

  • (2) separate AKKO Adult Plans
  • (2) separate AKKO Student Plans

After registering your primary Adult Plan, then register the remaining Adult and/or Student Plans you need and then simply email “billing@getAKKO.com” telling us the email addresses of each account you registered. We’ll then apply your multi-plan discount and consolidate all your billing to the primary account holder!

If you want to consolidate all your billing into (1) charge each month or year, then all plans must be registered on the same billing interval (either monthly, or annual). Otherwise, you may choose to mix-and-match if you’d like! For example, pay month-to-month for your (2) Adult Plans, and pay annually for your (2) student plans.

 

All plans protect your phones against Accidental Damage & Theft!

Best of all, in addition to everyone’s phones being covered, all their other personal electronics and belongings are covered too at no extra cost!

There’s a reason customers switch to AKKO and call the decision and “no-brainer.”

Learn how to switch to AKKO here.

Your coverage with an AKKO Plan begins 12:01AM the day after your account has been created as long as you have activated your account and completed set-up and your payment is current.

Coverage for theft, vandalism, fires/floods and natural disasters begins as soon as your coverage takes effect. Coverage for incidents of accidental damage begins 30 days from your registration date.

To have coverage be effective for your items, photos of them should be uploaded to your account in accordance with the guidelines listed in your account.

 

Photos of phones and tablets should be uploaded using the phone’s own cameras (front and rear) to provide pictures of the front (screen) and back sides of the device by taking the photos in front of a mirror.

Photos of laptops and computers should be taken by including a photo of the device with the screen powered on and also displaying the “about” page showing the specs and serial # of the computer.

 

Yes!

The age or place you purchased your items does not matter. As long as an item is eligible for coverage, regardless of its age or if you purchased it used from a store or individual, you can add it to your plan and have it covered through AKKO. See what items are eligible for coverage here.

 

For items you purchased used or through a 3rd party marketplace platform such as Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or OfferUp, request an email be sent to you by a seller stating the date you purchased an item, the amount paid, and what the item was. This can suffice as a purchase receipt should you be asked to provide one during a claim! You can follow this method including if you paid for items in cash and screenshot a payment you made via Venmo or another payment app or service like PayPal. Read more here about how purchase receipts are not required for coverage.
