Offer Shipping Insurance

In WooCommerce and its shipping extensions, there isn’t an easy way to offer insurance for the goods you are shipping.

One option is to include the insurance cost in the price of your products. This, however, has the downside that it gives the customer a wrong impression of the actual cost of the product.

Here are a few other options:

  • If the insurance is optional, you can use this code example from Stack Exchange. This will allow your customer to choose whether to use the shipping insurance or not.
  • If the insurance is not optional, our Payment Gateway Based Fees extension may work better for you. This will allow you to add a cost to the payment method to charge an extra cost.
