Add-on at checkout/cart

I want to provide an insurance service for customers to cover any missing/damaged items during transit and want to have an add-on created at cart/checkout level. 

 

Currently, I am using the app assortion which is fantastic but is only able to give a post-checkout add-on which a lot of customers aren't viewing as they close the tab the moment payment goes through. 

 

Is there anyway to create a product add-on at checkout/cart?

Repurpose the gift-wrap customization for cart upsells, fees, shipping insurance ,etc

https://shopify.dev/tutorials/customize-theme-add-gift-wrap-option

 

If it's more complicated than what can be done with liquid and javascript adding 1 item to the cart, look at scripting automation apps that can generate draft orders with custom line items etc.

Hi, @Kstuff.

 

For context, you won't be able to make any changes to your checkout page at this stage unless your store is on the Shopify Plus plan. Even then, there are limitations as to what you can edit for your checkout page, as explained in this document. This is because the checkout of a store is a secured page, and preventing stores from editing it helps ensure that the information for both stores and customers that are processed on checkout remains safe at all times.
 
For stores that are not subscribed to Shopify Plus, the checkout page can only be customized for its style, as mentioned in our help guide here.

 

If you'd like to look at options for adding an add-on on your cart page however, if you're not comfortable with coding I recommend looking into a third-party app to help with this. You mentioned that the current one that you use only offers add-ons post checkout, correct? If this functionality no longer aligns with your business' needs, you can start browsing for other apps that may offer the ability for you to show add-ons on cart, such as the ones below:

 

 

You can also browse other similar apps in our Shopify App Store here.

 

As with the current third-party app you have on your store however, just a reminder that these apps have been developed outside of Shopify. So if you have any questions or concerns about any of the apps, you'll need to reach out to the app support team directly as they're best equipped to support any app-specific queries.
