How to add a variable shipping fee

Hi, my store sells high end watches, and I want to make it so that the shipping fee includes the insurance for the price of the watch. The shipping insurance provider we use has a fee of 0.8% of the package value. Is there any way to have Shopify calculate this at checkout? I see USPS has a Handling Fee variable, although I believe that percentage comes from the cost of the label, not the package. Thank you!

Hello @ethanf5141 ,

 

I don't think it's possible if you are using a Shopify Shipping USPS account.

 

If you have your own USPS/Stamps.com account and are ready to use an app, then PH Multi Carrier Shipping Label app can offer live USPS, UPS, FedEx rates at checkout, including insurance based on the order value.

Hi Ethan, you can also check out Starshipit (if the other app offered isn't suitable). Starshipit can offer the same functionality and integration with USPS.
