Yes! You can insure your shipments by adding the insurance_provider field to your Create Label calls. ShipEngine supports the following insurance options:
Carrier insurance: Use this option to add a carrier's insurance to your package.
Some carriers include default insurance coverage for specific services. You will not be charged for added insurance with a value equal to or less than the carrier's default coverage amount.
Shipsurance: Use this option to add Shipsurance coverage to your shipment. Shipsurance is a ShipEngine partner and is pre-loaded into your ShipEngine account. Shipsurance fees for shipments that use ShipEngine Carriers will be deducted from your ShipEngine Balance.
If you do not want to include additional coverage through Shipsurance, you do not need to specify carrier insurance in your Create Label requests for services that include default insurance coverage.
Third party: Use this option to indicate that you have purchased insurance for this package from a third-party insurance provider.
If you do not want to include additional coverage with your shipment, do not specify carrier insurance in your Create Label request.
