adding Insurance costs on Checkout

hi all,

I have looked at various extensions but not found what i am after - I am looking for an extension that on Checkout, will allow the customer to see an option that shows an optional tick box ( with a cost associated based on a percentage of order value) that they can choose to pay for insurance on shipping or not to.

Many thanks
Clive

You can implement is per product. Just add an option Insurance or smth like that and define the cost.

X-Fee is an Order Total Module to charge any kind of extra fee/sub-charge for your store

thanks, could work but i would rather have an option for the customer at the checkout stage to add it once. otherwise if he orders 15 items he will need to add the correct option with each seperate item.

An order total extension module could do it from the cart page in order for the customer to add it once. Once the option selected by the customer, that total could, then, be reflected at the final stage of checkout.

As far as I am aware, there's no extension, which adds an option to select an insurance option. You can ask for commercial support on the matter, if you don't want to add a product option. Yet the latter seems better to me. And it's free!

There's no any option, it's just an order total with some fee. I have a similar extension, but I didn't offer it since you want a customer to select it optionally.

An order total with controller can also make optional offers via the cart. Models tend to be more insistent on that end, however.
