Offer Shipping Insurance: Woocommerce Fix

If you are trying to add shipping insurance to your store, woocommerce is not offering the best solution. Even worse, if you find a solution, it costs money.

Include in product price

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.

Alternatives

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.
