Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

I assume you are not making them? Do you have public liability?

I sell online and don't have public liabliity

Ok, you should just get public liability in case manners of the public are injured.

You don’t need product liability if you don’t manufacture.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

No. I would still get public liability.
