- Seel: AI-enabled e-commerce returns and order insurance
Seel offers customers and online retailers post-purchase guarantees at no cost to the seller.

Customers opt into these guarantees for a small fee paid to Seel (determined by an AI-powered risk model). Seel then pays all refund costs out of pocket, allowing retailers to keep all revenue from sold products.
