More and more stores cross-sell insurance for the products they offer. It is a very good idea as it can provide you with an additional profit. Insurance companies split profits with the middlemen, which in this case, are the stores. Become one of them with this WooCommerce Product Insurance Guide!
How to add WooCommerce product insurance with a plugin
I think the best way to cross-sell insurance is doing so on the product page. You will need the free Flexible Product Add-Ons plugin.
You can download it for free from WordPress.org or install it right from your store's plugins section searching for flexible product fields:
Once you have the plugin installed and activated, let's configure it. Choose: Products → Product Fields in your WordPress menu. Then you need to add a new field group:
You need to specify the product(s) for which a customer will be able to order insurance. This is easy.

You have to buy the PRO version if you want to add insurance cost to the total cost of the product in the cart.

- Advanced Insurance - £3.50 (10% of the product price)
- Ultimate Insurance - £7 (20% of the product price)
You can see the select field with the following prices:
When a customer adds this product to the cart, it looks like this:
