Would like to implement an insurance charge as a percentage of total purchase. Can anyone suggest how to do this? Also, when will this be a feature of vp-asp? It seems like something that would get a lot of use.

There is a SETUP field for this, but I am having trouble setting it up. (ver 6.5)

xinsurance [YesNo]
If set to Yes, the customer can select from insurance options at checkout. You must define the insurance in the Occasional Tasks/Shipping/Insurance section.

The "Insurance" section is not in "Occasional Tasks/Shipping". ?
Also (once I find it), I am going to force the insurance charge.

I will post back when i get it.

Unfortunately the Insurance feature is not working currently hence why there is no information on it.

We have put in place some core settings for when we do get around to doing it but nothing as yet has been done.

I changed "Handling" to read "Insurance", and charge a flat fee per order. In the long run, it evens out, and everyone gets insurance for everything.
