Insurance Lookup For Free Shipping

We are offering free, flat rate shipping and giving customers the choice of insuring or not insuring. In many cases we do not have shipping variables such as weight and box size for a product. We are offering a flat rate for shipping with an option to insure. To do this we will create shipping methods for “insured” and “uninsured” for each shipper. Will CS-Cart be able to connect with shippers' sites to calculate a purely price-based insurance cost?

You will need to use the proper “codes” for the shipping carrier for insured and uninsured. I.e. a USPS first class insured versus USPS first class. The real time process will return the rates for the available shipping methods based on the codes used in the methods.

Thanks for reply.
