To hide the ShipInsure product from the cart view, you need to edit the cart template file for adding custom attribute.

  • Click [Edit code] under three-dot menu 
  • Find cart template file in the theme (ex. cart.liquid
  • You may need to edit [Sections] > cart-template.liquid in this example. Add data-shipinsure="{{item.vendor}}" attribute for each cart item's DOM element.

Also custom CSS needs to be added to the theme for hiding the ShipInsure line item.

  1. In your Shopify admin, go to [Online Store] > [Themes]
