FAQs

We ask our partners to familiarize themselves with the below
information about FixFactor’s protection plans, protection inclusions, and
our claims processes.

You can also find information pertaining to referral payouts and how to
become an approved FixFactor Repair Partner.

Please be sure that you and your team have thoroughly read through FixFactor’s FAQs regarding plan coverage inclusions and terms for each of our plans. You can reach out to our support team if you have any questions or need clarifications.

A few important points you should always know:

  1. Items which are already damaged/malfunctioning cannot be added to a plan to be protected, they must be fixed/replaced first.
  2. All customers must complete activation of their plan and sign in to their account to add and verify the devices they want to protect. Brand new items you sell to a customer with a purchase receipt don’t need to undergo the same verification process.
  3. A deductible always applies to any claim. Deductibles for phones range from $29 – $99 based on the make a model for damages and theft. For non-phone items, students get a $49 deductible, adults $99.
  4. Drones and motorized vehicles/items cannot be protected by our $15/mo FixFactor Plan. (see more)
  5. Items that are damaged will be fully replaced if the repair cost is equal to or greater than the cost a replacement item can be purchased for.

Our partners receive $25 per user for each FixFactor Plan they sell and $20 per user for each Phone-only plan.

This referral fee compensation is subject to change. It may increase during promotions, as a reward for achieving certain bonuses, or for demonstrating high volume.

All referral fee compensations are paid out on the 15th of every month for all sales made the month before the prior month.

For example, on March 15th, all plans sold by a partner in January are eligible for payout so long as all users registered by the partner in January are still active on March 15th.

All new users need to be afforded a full 30 days to be allowed to cancel. Any user who requests a cancellation within the first 30 days receives a full refund. Including for annual plans.

Once a partner has been approved to be an FixFactor Repair Partner, any claims filed by users that the partner helped register get referred back to the partner.

In addition to customers a partner helps register getting referred back to them for claims, we will also refer our own customers that have signed up with us directly to approved repair partners that are near the customer.

Once you’re part of our approved Repair Partner Network, you’ll receive an email when a claim has been assigned or referred to your shop.

Sometimes, the first step will be obtaining a diagnosis of damage and a repair estimate for the customer to submit to the FixFactor Claims Team for review.

An FixFactor Claims Representative will let you know the maximum budget for a repair and if your estimate is below that amount and the customer’s claim has been fully verified, you’ll receive approval to proceed with the repair. If the cost to replace a damaged device is more cost-effective, then FixFactor will approve a replacement instead of a repair for the customer.

If you are a shop that has the needed replacement device in stock, the FixFactor Claims Representative will inform you of the approved cost and you can bill the customer their deductible and invoice FixFactor the remaining amount.

For any repair, the same process is followed, an FixFactor Repair Partner will charge the customer their deductible, then invoice FixFactor the remaining balance.

The FixFactor Claims Team pays repair provider and supplier invoices often the same or next day if credit card or PayPal payment methods are options. Otherwise, all claims invoices get paid weekly.

As an FixFactor Repair Partner, if you ever have questions pertaining to a claim that has been assigned to you, reply to the claim email of the customer. The FixFactor Claims Team works 7 days a week.

One of the most unique things about Fixfactor is that their plans will protect ANY phone or device no matter the make, model, carrier, or whether it is used, new, or refurbished, financed or unlocked.

The only requirements for a customer’s phone or device(s) to be eligible for protection are that they must be in full working and undamaged condition.

This means that no protection can be provided for a phone if for example the back glass is broken, but the screen is fine. The entire device must be undamaged. Protection can also not be provided for a phone with any mechanical/electrical issues or failures.

Before enrolling a customer on a plan, be sure to do a basic check of their device to make sure there is no damages or issues. A full diagnostic report is not required.

Once a customer is registered for a plan, they’ll receive an SMS with their login link and passcode to complete activating their account and verifying their device(s).

The verification process on Fixfactor’s platform requires photos to be provided that ensure the device is in full working and undamaged condition.

The deductibles for phones on our phone-only protection plans or our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan ranges from $29 – $99 per claim based on the phone’s model. $99 is also the max deductible even for Theft or total replacement claims! (less than half the cost of most other protection providers.) Click here to view the deductibles for repairs/replacements on your specific phone make/model.

If you have one of our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plans which protects 1 phone + 25 other items, all other items besides your phone are subject to a $99 deductible ($49 for students) for any incident of Accidental Damage or Theft.

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

But with all of Fixfactor’s protection plans, we made sure to have the deductibles at least be set at easily affordable amounts for incidents of accidental damages, breakdowns, and theft, rather than the $150 – $400 deductibles seen on many other protections plans for phones, laptops, and other electronics and personal items.

Note: Deductibles for lost phones on annually paid Fixfactor Plans range from $99 – $399 based on the phone make and model. Lost phone protection is not included on phone-only plans or Fixfactor Plans that are paid monthly.

To sign-up for an Fixfactor Student Plan, a customer can be any type of student, from elementary school to high school, including incoming college students, and current college students. Students at any 2yr, 4yr, or graduate school are all eligible as well. Any age.

As a partner, you’re not obligated to verify any customer’s status as being a student. Simply ask a prospective customer if they are a student while they’re looking to enroll in an Fixfactor Plan.

During activation of their account, Fixfactor’s platform will ask for verification of their student status. If they’re not an eligible student, we’ll simply change their plan to the adult rate. No actions must be taken by the partner.

  • Cracked screens
  • Spills & liquid submersion
  • Accidental damage (like drops)
  • Damage & malfunctions from accidental damage/drops
  • Mechanical/electrical component failures (for phones)
  • Theft
  • Theft of items from an unattended vehicle via forced entry (car break-ins)

The deductibles for phones on our phone-only protection plans or our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan range from $29 – $99 per claim based on the phone’s model. $99 is also the max deductible even for theft or total replacement claims – less than half as much as most other protection providers!

If you have one of our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plans, which protect one (1) phone + 25 other items, all other items besides your phone are subject to a $99 deductible ($49 for students) for any incident of accidental damage or theft.

This amount that is “deducted” from any reimbursement payout you receive exists so that you’re still motivated to be careful with your stuff.

But with all of Fixfactor’s protection plans, we’ve made sure to offer easily affordable deductibles for incidents of accidental damages, breakdowns, and theft, rather than the $150 – $500 deductibles you’ll encounter with many other protection plans for phones, laptops, and other electronics and personal items.

Note: Deductibles for lost phones on annually paid Fixfactor Plans range from $99 – $399 based on the phone make and model. Lost phone protection is not included on phone-only plans or Fixfactor Plans that are paid monthly.

If you lose one of your belongings, you’ll need to evaluate the situation to determine whether it qualifies as theft or what’s called “mysterious disappearance” (i.e., you simply misplaced your belonging and have no idea where it went).

Use tools like Find My iPhone or Google’s Find My Device to try and recover your phone; similar services exist to track down a missing laptop or 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.

To receive reimbursement for a stolen phone, you must be able to share the location timeline of the device.

If you have an Android device:

Make sure Find My Device is working and enabled. Go to your web browser, search for “Find My Device” and click the first result. Make sure you can see the device on a map displaying “last known location” along with the device name, make, and model.

If you have an iPhone:

The “Find My” app on iOS does not provide a history of your device’s location, which can help provide proof of theft for your claim. Download the Google Maps app and be sure it is set to allow location access at all times. You can verify that your Google Maps timeline is available by checking here:
https://www.google.com/maps/timeline

You will only need to show Fixfactor your location history if your phone is stolen. Your location data will not be used for any purpose other than to verify your claim.

The protection you get with an Fixfactor Plan will cover theft of any item, but it will only cover “mysterious disappearance” of phones for customers who have signed up for an annual payment plan. The deductible for a lost phone for those on annual plans ranges from $99 to $399, depending on the make and model.

Plans cannot be shared with friends, family members, or anyone else. All plans are per individual and will only cover items that the account holder owns.

All accounts may have up to one (1) phone on them. To add more phones, you must purchase additional plans. Either phone-only or an Adult and/or Student “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan.

Fixfactor’s mission is to make claims fast and easy for you!

The Claims Process:

  1. Login to your Fixfactor account from your phone or computer and file your claim.
  2. A team member will reach out to you within one day to collect any necessary further information or to direct you to a nearby repair provider.
  3. Repairs: If your item(s) can be repaired, Fixfactor will either pay the repair shop directly or send you the money for repairs. If funds are paid to you directly, you can choose to receive them via PayPal, Zelle, or a wire transfer initiated the same day as claim approval. (Many of our repair claims, such as cracked phone screens, get fully resolved within 24 hours!)
  4. Replacements: If your item is in need of total replacement (i.e., it’s unrepairable or stolen), Fixfactor will send you a payout equal to the replacement value; we can also have a replacement item sent straight to you, if preferred.


Notes:

  • Your deductible is subtracted from any claim payouts. (For example, if your screen repair is $158 after tax, and the repair deductible for your phone is $49, you would receive a payout of $109.)
  • Claims of theft generally take longer to resolve than damage claims. Police reports and proof of purchase are required to be submitted to our team, and the time to receive the police report may vary depending on where the incident occurred.
  • If you have Apple devices which a local repair provider is not able to service, then you can get them taken care of at an Apple Store. We will not force you to send away your Apple devices for repair. Our goal is to get your items fixed or replaced ASAP.

Replacements:
If your items are too extensively damaged (or were stolen) and you require a replacement device or item, we offer a few flexible options to best suit your preference!

  • We can send you instant cash (via PayPal, Zelle, or Check) for a refurbished replacement of your device.
  • If no replacement value can be found for your item, we would send you the funds for the value of a newer model/available.
  • Instead of cash, we can send you a refurbished device listed in very good condition.
  • Instead of cash, we can send you a newer/different device model and you pay the difference for any upgraded model.


As a general note, we find the replacement value of the item by looking at the cost of refurbished items of the same make/model/year. Check out Backmarket.com and Swappa.com to see the present value of your phone model or other devices.

For example, if your iPhone X was stolen or completely destroyed, we would find the value of a refurbished iPhone X and your payout would be the cost of the replacement, plus sales tax if applicable, then subtracting your plan’s deductible ($29-$99 based upon your plan and item). This is in reference to option “1)” above if you wanted instant cash.

We will not base the value of your item off of what used iPhone X phones are being sold for by random individuals on a site like OfferUp or Craigslist. You also will not receive a payout based on the value you initially paid for the phone when it was new, unless no replacement can be found.

The same process applies to claims for other electronics and personal items on your plan which are eligible for coverage.

Your protection begins at 12:01 a.m. Standard Time at the location of your property the day after your account is created and payment is current and activation is completed.

There is a waiting period of up to 30 days for accidental damages or theft to be eligible for reimbursement from your plan. In situations where ample photo/video evidence is available when reviewing your reported loss and claim, this waiting period may be waived for losses from accidental damages.

Be sure to follow all instructions within your account for adding photos and information for your items.

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. A photo of the phone’s “About” page in settings should also be provided by using another device (do not provide a screenshot) and the serial # of the device should be visible.

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.

Photos of TVs should also be taken where the screen is powered on and displaying video/image. Also include photo of the serial #. For gaming consoles, be sure to include photos that show the device powered on with image/video visible on a display. Do not just include photos of the gaming console itself if it has no screen.

Yes!

Your items are eligible for coverage through Fixfactor regardless of their age, where they were purchased, or whether they were purchased new or used.

See the list of eligible items here.

For items purchased used or through a third-party marketplace platform such as Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or OfferUp, you will need to contact the seller and request an emailed statement that identifies the item, the date it was purchased, and the amount paid. This can suffice as a purchase receipt if you need to provide one during a claim. This also applies to items that you paid for in cash. If you paid for the item via Venmo, PayPal or another payment app, you can take a screenshot of the payment.

Yes!

You may cover any phone that is yours and in your possession. It does not need to have been paid for in full.

Many of our customers buy phones on installment plans through their cellular carriers or other retailers.

When you register for Fixfactor, you’ll go through essentially the normal process to add a financed phone to your account. The only difference is that instead of uploading a receipt, you’ll just need to download a PDF or take a screenshot of your most recent bill/statement from the cellular carrier or retailer showing your installment payment and the type of device.

Please note that for any claim on a leased/financed phone that requires device replacement, the balance you owe for the device will have to be paid off fully before you can receive your remaining claim reimbursement.

With an Fixfactor Plan, you may cover any phone which is yours and in your possession. It does not matter what carrier you use or if your phone is unlocked or financed. Our Fixfactor Plan is only $15 per month and protects your unlocked phone against Accidental Damage & Theft along with nearly all your other personal electronics and gear at no extra cost!

When you register, the same process applies for adding your phone to your account. You will take pictures of its front and back to verify its working and undamaged condition.

Your Fixfactor Plan covers just about any everyday personal item, from electronics to clothes to sports gear and much more. Select one (1) phone + any 25 of your eligible belongings to load into your Fixfactor account for protection. You can swap items in and out of your Fixfactor plan whenever you’d like!

The deductibles for phones on our phone-only protection plans or our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan range from $29 – $99 per claim based on the phone’s model. $99 is also the max deductible even for theft or total replacement claims – less than half as much as most other protection providers!

Click here to view the deductibles for repairs/replacements on your specific phone make/model.

If you have one of our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plans, which protect one (1) phone + 25 other items, all other items besides your phone are subject to a $99 deductible ($49 for students) for any incident of accidental damage or theft.

This amount that is “deducted” from any reimbursement payout you receive exists so that you’re still motivated to be careful with your stuff.

But with all of Fixfactor’s protection plans, we’ve made sure to offer easily affordable deductibles for incidents of accidental damages, breakdowns, and theft, rather than the $150 – $500 deductibles you’ll encounter with many other protection plans for phones, laptops, and other electronics and personal items.

Note: Deductibles for lost phones on annually paid Fixfactor Plans range from $99 – $399 based on the phone make and model. Lost phone protection is not included on phone-only plans or Fixfactor Plans that are paid monthly.

Fixfactor Base Plans ($15/month for adults, $10 for students) include $2,000 of reimbursement protection per incident**. There are no annual reimbursement limits or limits on the number of claims you may file.

**$2,000 PER INCIDENT means that, for instance, if you just replaced your broken phone with us and your new phone is stolen the following week, the replacement value of your phone will be covered in full (after deductible) 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, the repair cost or replacement value of the laptop will be fully covered (after deductible) as long as it’s less than $2,000.

In short, there is no annual limit to your claims and reimbursement, and every incident is covered individually.

However, if during a single incident someone steals your entire backpack, which contains both your phone and laptop, up to $2,000 total is covered to reimburse you for replacing those items and any other covered contents of your backpack (including the backpack itself). Even if the combined replacement cost exceeds $2,000 for all these items, your coverage will pay out a maximum of $2,000.

Higher per-incident coverage limits are available!

Once you’re registered, you can upgrade your coverage to a per-incident reimbursement limit as high as $10,000! Our most common per-incident upgrade is $3,000 – $5,000, which adds only a few dollars to your monthly premiums.

Our studies and claims data show that the $2,000 per-incident limit is more than enough for the majority of users. That said, if you would like to cover more expensive items like a high-end laptop, specialty photography or music gear, etc., we offer an easy option to upgrade your limit. Simply contact us via the “billing” section of your account to initiate an increase to your per-incident limit.

For accidental damage claims, we do not require the original purchase receipts for the items you want to protect on your plan. While the receipt would be preferred, you can establish proof of ownership through other means.

For items purchased used or through a third-party marketplace platform such as Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or OfferUp, you may request an email be sent to you by the seller stating what you bought, when you bought it, and how much you paid for it. If an item was gifted to you, you may need to ask the gift giver for a statement that says as much.

For theft claims, proof of purchase will need to be provided. If you don't have the original receipt of your purchase, you can try to contact the original seller or retailer, as they typically have records of past transactions. You can try providing your name, phone number, email, or credit card number to try and track down a receipt for something you purchased.

You can also provide our team a record of your credit card or bank statement showing the date and amount paid for an item. Finally, if you purchased an item through a marketplace or from a private seller, you can provide a record of, for instance, a PayPal or Venmo transaction.

We do not cover furniture, automobile, motorcycle, boat, motor, aircraft or aircraft parts (including drones) 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. Reimbursement for jewelry, watches, rings, and other items consisting of gold, silver, or platinum or furs is limited to $1,000.00 for any one incident of loss.
  2. Reimbursement for bicycles is limited to $1,000.
  3. Property in a personally owned automobile is protected, 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.

  4. Surfboards are protected for theft and damage due to mishandling on airlines, accidental damage from non-airline transportation or use/handling not included.

Appliances: only counter-top appliances such as blenders, coffee makers, toasters, or microwaves are protected. Appliances which are wall mounted or integrated into cabinetry or have any types of utility hookups such as gas or water are not covered.

If you lose one of your belongings, you'll need to evaluate the situation to determine whether it qualifies as theft or what's called "mysterious disappearance" (i.e., you simply misplaced your belonging and have no idea where it went).

Your items are eligible for coverage through Fixfactor regardless of their age, where they were purchased, or whether they were purchased new or used. 

See the list of eligible items here

For items purchased used or through a third-party marketplace platform such as Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or OfferUp, you will need to contact the seller and request an emailed statement that identifies the item, the date it was purchased, and the amount paid.

a href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Read more here about how purchase receipts are not required for coverage.

NOTE: For phones, mechanical/electrical issues are covered regardless of when you purchased the phone and whether it was purchased used, new, or refurbished. It just needs to be undamaged and fully functional at the time you register. For all other items, the below conditions apply.

Our Fixfactor Plan ($15/month plan that protects 1 phone + 25 items) includes a mechanical/electrical components failure protection guarantee for all your portable electronic devices (such as laptops, tablets, smartwatches, and headphones) and TVs that lasts for 36 months from the date of purchase of each device.

Portable electronic devices and TVs you add to your Fixfactor account for this protection must have been purchased "new" by you either within the 120 days prior to your registration, or anytime after you registered your plan. You must upload your purchase receipt with each device you wish to have this protection to your Fixfactor account. It's basically like having FREE 3-year mechanical warranties on all of your portable electronic devices and TVs!

Terms:For any of your portable electronic devices or TVs which already have an active warranty which covers mechanical/electrical component failures (either provided by the manufacturer of the device, a retailer/reseller, or third party) any claims pertaining to mechanical/electrical component failures would first go through your existing/included warranty.

After any existing warranty expires covering mechanical/electrical failures for your eligible devices, Fixfactor would take over for the remainder of the 36 month period that began on the date of purchase of the eligible portable electronic device or TV.


A portable electronic device is defined as any device which requires either an internal, or external battery to operate. In addition to portable electronics, this protection and these terms also apply to TVs. All claims are still subject to your plan's standard service fees/deductibles.

This special protection ends for your devices if you cancel your plan with Fixfactor and cannot be resumed even if you choose to then re-enroll with Fixfactor at a later point in time.

Your Fixfactor Plan covers just about any everyday personal item, from electronics to clothes to sports gear and much more. Select one (1) phone + any 25 of your eligible belongings to load into your Fixfactor account for protection. You can swap items in and out of your Fixfactor plan whenever you’d like!

Phones, laptops, tablets, smartwatches, TVs, desktop computers, monitors, etc.

NOTE: All plans are per individual and will only cover items owned by the planholder. Plans cannot be shared with family or friends.

Adult and Student Plan accounts protect a maximum of one (1) phone. To cover additional phones, purchase additional adult or student plans. There are no quantity limits for other personal electronics and eligible items you want to add to your account.

Multiple plans may be purchased at a discount with billing bundled together!

  • Cracked screens
  • Spills & liquid submersion
  • Accidental damage (like drops)
  • Damage & malfunctions from accidental damage/drops
  • Mechanical/electrical component failures (for phones)
  • Theft
  • Theft of items from an unattended vehicle via forced entry (car break-ins)

The deductibles for phones on our phone-only protection plans or our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan range from $29 – $99 per claim based on the phone’s model. $99 is also the max deductible even for theft or total replacement claims – less than half as much as most other protection providers!

Click here to view the deductibles for repairs/replacements on your specific phone make/model.

If you have one of our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plans, which protect one (1) phone + 25 other items, all other items besides your phone are subject to a $99 deductible ($49 for students) for any incident of accidental damage or theft.

This amount that is “deducted” from any reimbursement payout you receive exists so that you’re still motivated to be careful with your stuff.

But with all of Fixfactor’s protection plans, we’ve made sure to offer easily affordable deductibles for incidents of accidental damages, breakdowns, and theft, rather than the $150 – $500 deductibles you’ll encounter with many other protection plans for phones, laptops, and other electronics and personal items.

Note: Deductibles for lost phones on annually paid Fixfactor Plans range from $99 – $399 based on the phone make and model. Lost phone protection is not included on phone-only plans or Fixfactor Plans that are paid monthly.

Fixfactor Base Plans ($15/month for adults, $10 for students) include $2,000 of reimbursement protection per incident**. There are no annual reimbursement limits or limits on the number of claims you may file.

**$2,000 PER INCIDENT means that, for instance, if you just replaced your broken phone with us and your new phone is stolen the following week, the replacement value of your phone will be covered in full (after deductible) 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, the repair cost or replacement value of the laptop will be fully covered (after deductible) as long as it’s less than $2,000.

In short, there is no annual limit to your claims and reimbursement, and every incident is covered individually.

However, if during a single incident someone steals your entire backpack, which contains both your phone and laptop, up to $2,000 total is covered to reimburse you for replacing those items and any other covered contents of your backpack (including the backpack itself). Even if the combined replacement cost exceeds $2,000 for all these items, your coverage will pay out a maximum of $2,000.

Higher per-incident coverage limits are available!

Once you’re registered, you can upgrade your coverage to a per-incident reimbursement limit as high as $10,000! Our most common per-incident upgrade is $3,000 – $5,000, which adds only a few dollars to your monthly premiums.

Our studies and claims data show that the $2,000 per-incident limit is more than enough for the majority of users. That said, if you would like to cover more expensive items like a high-end laptop, specialty photography or music gear, etc., we offer an easy option to upgrade your limit. Simply contact us via the “billing” section of your account to initiate an increase to your per-incident limit.

For accidental damage claims, we do not require the original purchase receipts for the items you want to protect on your plan. While the receipt would be preferred, you can establish proof of ownership through other means.

For items purchased used or through a third-party marketplace platform such as Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or OfferUp, you may request an email be sent to you by the seller stating what you bought, when you bought it, and how much you paid for it. If an item was gifted to you, you may need to ask the gift giver for a statement that says as much.

For theft claims, proof of purchase will need to be provided. If you don't have the original receipt of your purchase, you can try to contact the original seller or retailer, as they typically have records of past transactions. You can try providing your name, phone number, email, or credit card number to try and track down a receipt for something you purchased.

You can also provide our team a record of your credit card or bank statement showing the date and amount paid for an item. Finally, if you purchased an item through a marketplace or from a private seller, you can provide a record of, for instance, a PayPal or Venmo transaction.

We do not cover furniture, automobile, motorcycle, boat, motor, aircraft or aircraft parts (including drones) 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. Reimbursement for jewelry, watches, rings, and other items consisting of gold, silver, or platinum or furs is limited to $1,000.00 for any one incident of loss.
  2. Reimbursement for bicycles is limited to $1,000.
  3. Property in a personally owned automobile is protected, 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.

  4. Surfboards are protected for theft and damage due to mishandling on airlines, accidental damage from non-airline transportation or use/handling not included.

Appliances: only counter-top appliances such as blenders, coffee makers, toasters, or microwaves are protected. Appliances which are wall mounted or integrated into cabinetry or have any types of utility hookups such as gas or water are not covered.

No.

Fixfactor coverage does not apply to any damage, theft, or loss that affects your car or motor vehicle (such as a street scooter or motorcycle), nor any items incorporated or mounted/installed in or on the interior/exterior of your vehicle. You’ll have to go through your auto insurance to recover any such losses.

However, your coverage does apply to items inside your car that are damaged or stolen, as long as you are able to provide proof of forced entry into the vehicle which indicates that your doors/windows/trunk/cargo bags were closed and locked.

Just as with any other claims for theft, you must also provide a copy of your filed police report.

Renter’s insurance (from Lemonade, Jetty, or other established insurance providers) typically covers losses to your property from damage or theft only when you’re at home and does not cover accidental damage like dropping your phone or spilling coffee on your laptop.

Accidental damage such as cracked screens, spills, and drops are more than 12 times as likely to happen as losses that renters’ policies will even cover.

Additionally, the deductibles on renters’ policies for losses from damage like fires, floods, or break-ins are usually $250-$1,000 – much higher than the deductible you would pay for any Fixfactor claim.

Furthermore, the cost of your renters’ or homeowners’ insurance coverage may increase when you do file a claim. The cost of your Fixfactor coverage will never increase from claims, no matter how many you file!

The short answer: because Fixfactor is using technology to make facilitating and managing protection for your stuff more efficient and less costly. Typical insurers charge really high fees on the insurance and protection plans you buy because of the work involved in processing policies and claims.

At Fixfactor, we’re changing that – enabling our customers to get comprehensive, affordable and straightforward protection. We’re ending the need to buy protection plans or insurance at the point of sale every time you get something new. Just add it to your Fixfactor plan, and you’re covered!

In a word, yes! Fixfactor is a legitimate and insured U.S. corporation with backing from an “A” Rated insurer, and we’re rated “Excellent” on TrustPilot.

Fixfactor was founded in 2019, initially covering college students only with our unique protection plan that protects all of your eligible personal items for one simple, affordable monthly fee.

After working with a few large college organizations, we began the process of getting the same amazing protection plan approved to sell to anyone.

At the start of 2020, we soft-launched our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan! Now we’re trying to spread the word so people can start protecting the stuff they care about and rely upon in an affordable and easy way. Think of us as the Spotify of protection plans – just as Spotify bundled together all the songs people wanted to hear in one convenient package, we’re bundling together protection for all your most valuable personal possessions – starting with your phone, but including up to 25 other items, including laptops, TVs, audio equipment, sports gear, and much more.

We also added simple, affordable phone-only protection plans in November 2020.)

With Fixfactor, you’ll have:

  • No hidden fees
  • No long lists of protection exclusions
  • No restrictions on how old your stuff is
  • No restrictions on protecting preowned items
  • No long phone waits when you file a claim or need assistance
  • And no need to wait weeks or months to actually get reimbursed!

YES! As long as you’re a U.S. or Canadian resident with our protection, your items are fully protected when you travel or are living/staying abroad. ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!

The same procedures apply for filing claims if any of your items are affected by accidental damage or theft while you are abroad. Check our article here on how claims work.

Fixfactor will send you the funds for your claim payout electronically so you can get a repair or replacement where you are.

Please note that if your claim requires an item replacement, funds will be sent to you equal to the cost of replacement for your item based upon U.S. prices.

To upgrade your coverage, just email us at billing@getFixfactor.com for help with changing your coverage plan. We’ll update your plan and confirm the changes with the insurance company so that your plan can have a higher coverage limit to accommodate your more expensive items, or a higher per incident limit for your stuff.

For Student Plans, we have coverage limits that range from $2,000 to $6,000 per incident in increments of $1,000, all with a $49 deductible.

For Adult Plans, we currently offer plans with per incident coverage limits of $2,000 – $6,000 in increments of $1,000, all with a $99 deductible.

If you want to protect multiple phones on a single plan, you may need to upgrade your coverage with an add-on or purchase additional Fixfactor Plans.

Your protection begins at 12:01 a.m. Standard Time at the location of your property the day after your account is created and payment is current and activation is completed.

There is a waiting period of up to 30 days for accidental damages or theft to be eligible for reimbursement from your plan. In situations where ample photo/video evidence is available when reviewing your reported loss and claim, this waiting period may be waived for losses from accidental damages.

Be sure to follow all instructions within your account for adding photos and information for your items.

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. A photo of the phone’s “About” page in settings should also be provided by using another device (do not provide a screenshot) and the serial # of the device should be visible.

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.

Photos of TVs should also be taken where the screen is powered on and displaying video/image. Also include photo of the serial #. For gaming consoles, be sure to include photos that show the device powered on with image/video visible on a display. Do not just include photos of the gaming console itself if it has no screen.

Yes!

Your items are eligible for coverage through Fixfactor regardless of their age, where they were purchased, or whether they were purchased new or used.

See the list of eligible items here.

For items purchased used or through a third-party marketplace platform such as Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or OfferUp, you will need to contact the seller and request an emailed statement that identifies the item, the date it was purchased, and the amount paid. This can suffice as a purchase receipt if you need to provide one during a claim. This also applies to items that you paid for in cash. If you paid for the item via Venmo, PayPal or another payment app, you can take a screenshot of the payment.

Read more here about how purchase receipts are not required for coverage.

Yes!

You may cover any phone that is yours and in your possession. It does not need to have been paid for in full.

Many of our customers buy phones on installment plans through their cellular carriers or other retailers.

When you register for Fixfactor, you’ll go through essentially the normal process to add a financed phone to your account. The only difference is that instead of uploading a receipt, you’ll just need to download a PDF or take a screenshot of your most recent bill/statement from the cellular carrier or retailer showing your installment payment and the type of device.

Please note that for any claim on a leased/financed phone that requires device replacement, the balance you owe for the device will have to be paid off fully before you can receive your remaining claim reimbursement.

Fixfactor is all about making claims easy and fast for you!

Here is the process for claims:

  1. Login to your Fixfactor account and file your claim from your phone or the web.
  2. A team member will reach out to you the same or next day to collect any applicable extra information, or to direct you to a nearby repair provider.
  3. Repairs: If your item is in need of repairs, Fixfactor will either pay you or a repair shop for repairs for your item(s). If funds are paid to you directly, you can receive funds via PayPal, Zelle, or a wire transfer initiated the same-day as claim approval. (many of our repair claims, such as cracked phone screens, get fully resolved within 24hrs!)
  4. Replacements: If your item is in need of total replacement (unrepairable or stolen), Fixfactor will send you a payout equal to the replacement value, or can also have a replacement item sent straight to you.
Notes:

  • Your deductible is subtracted from any claim payouts. (for example, if your screen repair is $158 after tax, and the repair deductible for your phone is $49, you would receive a payout of $109)
  • Claims of theft will take longer to resolve than damage claims. Police reports and proof of purchase are required and copies must be submitted to our team, the time to receive a report may vary based on where you live.
  • If you have Apple devices which a local repair provider is not able to service, then you can get them taken care of at an Apple Store, we WILL NOT force you to send us your Apple devices to get repaired. Our goal is to get your items fixed/replaced ASAP
How do we determine the replacement value of your items?

If your item(s) are too extensively damaged (or were stolen) and you require a replacement device or item, our team member will find the replacement value of the item by looking at the cost of an available refurbished replacement of the same make/model/year/specs then send you a reimbursement payout.

For example, if your iPhone X was stolen or completely destroyed, we would find the value of a refurbished iPhone X and your payout would be the cost of the replacement, plus sales tax if applicable, then subtracting your plan’s deductible ($29-$99 based on your phone, or for non-phone items $99 on our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan for adults, and $49 for students).

Fixfactor will not determine the value of your item based on what used iPhone X phones or other items are being sold for by random individuals online. Replacement values are only determined based off items sold by businesses. You also will not receive a payout based on the value you initially paid for your phone or any other affected item when it was new.

The same process applies to claims for other electronics and personal items on your plan which are eligible for protection.

PHONE THEFT: For the theft of a phone to be eligible for reimbursement, you must be able to share your google location timeline to prove the last known location of the device prior to it being stolen. If you do not have the Google Maps mobile application installed on your device, you must do so in order for theft of the phone to be protected, or have a similar device tracking software/tool which is capable of displaying the last known location of a device with a timeline/history. A mobile app or tool such as iPhone’s “Find My” is not sufficient enough as it can only prove the present location of a device and cannot display a timeline/history of its location. If you have any questions regarding theft of phones or need assistance setting up a proper mobile app or tool, please contact us.

Note: if you registered prior to November 3, 2020, different terms may apply, please reference all terms and conditions.

No.

Unfortunately, that’s not how protection plans work. If you have any items that are currently broken (cracked phone screen, water-damaged laptop, etc.), they are not eligible to be added to an Fixfactor Plan and will not be repaired or replaced by us.

For an item to be eligible for protection, you must:

1. Have an active plan with Fixfactor

2. Have the item’s information uploaded to your account along with pictures of it in working and undamaged condition. This means that you’ve taken photos of the item in accordance with all the instructions we provide when you’re adding an item to your account.

Then, if something happens to any of your items in the future, they’re protected!

If you do have an item that’s already damaged in any way, it will need to be repaired fully to be eligible for protection under our plans.

Even though it may be too late for the items you’ve damaged already, signing up for an Fixfactor plan today will ensure that you’re covered in case misfortune (or clumsiness) strikes again!

The deductibles for phones on our phone-only protection plans or our “Everything Protected” Fixfactor Plan range from $29 – $99 per claim based on the phone’s model. $99 is also the max deductible even for theft or total replacement claims – less than half as much as most other protection providers!

Replacements:

If your items are too extensively damaged (or were stolen) and you require a replacement device or item, we offer a few flexible options to best suit your preference!

1) We can send you instant cash (via PayPal, Zelle, or Check) for a refurbished replacement of your device.
2) If no replacement value can be found for your item, we would send you the funds for the value of a newer model/available.
3) Instead of cash, we can send you a refurbished device listed in very good condition.
4) Instead of cash, we can send you a newer/different device model and you pay the difference for any upgraded model.

As a general note, we find the replacement value of the item by looking at the cost of refurbished items of the same make/model/year. Check out Backmarket.com and Swappa.com to see the present value of your phone model or other devices.

For example, if your iPhone X was stolen or completely destroyed, we would find the value of a refurbished iPhone X and your payout would be the cost of the replacement, plus sales tax if applicable, then subtracting your plan’s deductible ($29-$99 based upon your plan and item). This is in reference to option “1)” above if you wanted instant cash.

We will not base the value of your item off of what used iPhone X phones are being sold for by random individuals on a site like OfferUp or Craigslist. You also will not receive a payout based on the value you initially paid for the phone when it was new, unless no replacement can be found.

The same process applies to claims for other electronics and personal items on your plan which are eligible for coverage.

After you file a claim for your Apple devices, we’ll direct you to the closest repair provider able to handle your claim and provide repairs for your item.

If no nearby repair provider is able to service your Apple devices, you can go directly to an Apple Store or use Apple’s mail-in services for repairs. We’ll never require you to ship us your Apple devices!

We want your items fixed ASAP.

All repairs that are completed through your claims with Fixfactor at any repair provider are also backed by a 12 month warranty!

To upgrade your coverage, just email us at billing@getFixfactor.com for help with changing your coverage plan. We’ll update your plan and confirm the changes with the insurance company so that your plan can have a higher coverage limit to accommodate your more expensive items, or a higher per incident limit for your stuff.

For Student Plans, we have coverage limits that range from $2,000 to $6,000 per incident in increments of $1,000, all with a $49 deductible.

For Adult Plans, we currently offer plans with per incident coverage limits of $2,000 – $6,000 in increments of $1,000, all with a $99 deductible.

NOTE: For phones, mechanical/electrical issues are covered regardless of when you purchased the phone and whether it was purchased used, new, or refurbished. It just needs to be undamaged and fully functional at the time you register. For all other items, the below conditions apply.

Our AKKO Plan ($15/month plan that protects 1 phone + 25 items) includes a mechanical/electrical components failure protection guarantee for all your portable electronic devices (such as laptops, tablets, smartwatches, and headphones) and TVs that lasts for 36 months from the date of purchase of each device.

Portable electronic devices and TVs you add to your AKKO account for this protection must have been purchased “new” by you either within the 120 days prior to your registration, or anytime after you registered your plan. You must upload your purchase receipt with each device you wish to have this protection to your AKKO account.

It’s basically like having FREE 3-year mechanical warranties on all of your portable electronic devices and TVs!

Terms:
For any of your portable electronic devices or TVs that already have an active warranty which covers mechanical/electrical component failures (either provided by the manufacturer of the device, a retailer/reseller, or third party) any claims pertaining to mechanical/electrical component failures would first go through your existing/included warranty.

After any existing warranty expires covering mechanical/electrical failures for your eligible devices, AKKO would take over for the remainder of the 36-month period that began on the date of purchase of the eligible portable electronic device or TV.

A portable electronic device is defined as any device which requires either an internal or external battery to operate. In addition to portable electronics, this protection and these terms also apply to TVs. All claims are still subject to your plan’s standard service fees/deductibles.

This special protection ends for your devices if you cancel your plan with AKKO and cannot be resumed even if you choose to re-enroll with AKKO at a later point in time.
