    [Development] USPS Shipping Module

    OK we will test it out on Rc2a site and let you know.
  2. As usual with the USPS upgrade it is not just a rate change. There are service names changes as well. Is anyone looking at updating the Add On?

    Paypal G2 G5 VeriSign Trusted Root Certificate

    It would be good to get an official response from the osCommerce team but this will largely depend on what version of osCommerce you are running. the PayPal module you are using and your hosting environment. Over at Zencart (an old osCommerce clone) they say it won't effect the code but they have advised FOR THE TECHNICALLY-INTERESTED: PayPal's update is occurring in 2 stages: A VeriSign G2-to-G5 Root Certificate Upgrade, and then a SHA-256 SSL certificate. And, strictly speaking, those changes have NO IMPACT on the PHP code used in Zen Cart. But they do affect underlying server technologies used on your webserver. 1. VeriSign Root Certificate Upgrade: We've already tested Zen Cart against the PayPal sandbox, which is already using the Verisign G5 Root Certificate, and it works fine. But that's because the webservers we tested on already have the Verisign G5 Root Certificate authority files installed. Your host can help you with this. See the link below. 2. SHA-256 SSL certificate PayPal isn't updating the "api-3t.paypal.com" endpoint (used in Zen Cart v1.3.x and v1.5.x) until June 2016 (and sandbox too, so we can't test that just yet; nevertheless, it's a server config thing, not a Zen Cart thing). But in 2015 there is a big push for all webservers to start using SHA-256 SSL certificate chains. As such, you should ensure that your hosting company properly updates your server's SSL certificate store. a) PayPal offers some advice for your hosting company here: https://ppmts.custhelp.com/ci/fattac...20English).pdf b) And you can also ask your hosting company to fix any SSL problems reported for your site as mentioned in #3 above.

    UPS Dimensional Weight Starting in 2015

    We have successfully implemented UPS dimensional shipping. It does require some fine tuning in terms of product dimensions and box sizes to get it to calculate correctly but that effort is largely on the user side although we did have to add a debugger to see what was being sent to UPS so we could then match rates with their site.

    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    I can see a new version is being worked on. Has anyone noticed issues with existing/older versions due to the Sept 8 2014 changes 1. Domestic Signature Confirmation Charge not being added 2. International First Class letters Service not being offered

    UPS Dimensional Weight Starting in 2015

    I agree this is going to be a bit of a nightmare but the overall objective is to get people to ship more appropriately. Stop companies shippnig small items in huge boxes which take up a lot of room on planes and trucks. FedEx and UPS XML module both allow for dimensions. I have only see FedEx in action so far. As far as I understand you: 1 have to record the dimensions for each product. 2. You also get to define the dimensions of your shipping boxes. 3. You can set individual products to ship in their own box. 4. Everything else is assumed to be put into one or more of your defined shipping boxes. So you have an order with 4 items. One ships on its own so its cost is calculated separate to the other 3. The other 3 weigh less than the 70 lbs max limit per box so they are going to go into one box if they fit. IF not they are going to be treated as two or more boxes. But the issue is which box size? I guess there is some formula that works out the best match. And I am assuming it could be more than one box. And if you have an item that does not fit a defined box then what? -------------------- I don't think we can just record the dimensional weight of each item and pass the total to the API because that you are going to be charged the dimensional weight of the actual shipping box. Also there are items that can be folded so what dimension are you going to use anyway? Folding does not make the lighter and theoretically not smaller. But it can effect the size of shipping box they fit into.

    New Certified PayPal Payment Modules

    Thanks Harold. We installed the PayPal PayFlow module and it worked. It was a bit of a learning curve as there are a lot of settings on the PayPal side and it is like hide and seek finding where to do it under the PayPal account.

    New Certified PayPal Payment Modules

    I am also having trouble working out which module maps to the PayPal Advanced Payments service. I looked at the demo and when I try to checkout I get an error saying "This content cannot be displayed in a frame". Which one of these is PayPal Advanced? PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards) (paypal_express; Sandbox) THIS IS PAYPAL EXPRESS CHECKOUT PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards) (paypal_standard; Sandbox) THIS IS THE PAYPAL IPN MODULE Credit or Debit Card (paypal_pro_dp; Sandbox) PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards) (paypal_pro_hs; Sandbox) PayPal (including Credit and Debit Cards) (paypal_pro_payflow_hs; Sandbox

    PayPal express checkout button not working

    No I have not seen it before. But it sounds like you are saying that it is actually on the PayPal site when you see the message "waiting for ...". Is that correct? If so you might want to contact PayPal support.

    Paypal IPNs have stopped working for us yesterday

    We raised this issue directly with PayPal but they denied any change had occurred.

    I just wanted to note that this is happening for us on multiple sites running MS2.2 on different servers.

    FedEx - Web Services v9

    Feel free to update the Add On with your recommendations. EDD is a good question and you would need to read the FedEx developer documentation to see if their API returns EDD. I am also looking at that right now.

    Changes in USPS What do we have to do?

    There are a lot of hidden changes that go beyond the name changes. I posted information about them on the link above.
  16. Attached is a upgraded version of USPS Methods is based on 5.2.1. See http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/487 It is patched and current to 28 July 2013 changes. It works on 2.2, rc2a and 2.3. We've re-tested all options and services and believe they all work. usps.php 52.26K 25 downloads Please note the server is still set to staging. Go to lines 821-823 to reset to production. You need to upload the file to modules/shipping. You need to uninstall then reinstall in Admin. Don't forget to make note of your settings before you uninstall. Again this is USPS Methods Add On #487

    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    @wkdwich There was no business driver to upgrade. Our version worked and V6 was basically a technical rewrite. We've stuck to this version of 5.2.1 for all our clients.

    @@wkdwich I am about to load hopefully our final patch to our version. It works on 2.2, RC2a, 2.3. It is php V5.3 compatible. I don't know what version you are running but our version works for all services including international envelopes. There were quite a few changes hidden in the current upgrade. IT was not a simple name change like back in Jan.

    An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations.

    YOu can get that sometimes when the order weight is too large for the active services

    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    Just to clarify, the ozEworks version posted here is based on USPS Methods http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/487 V5.2.1. It has the latest country list. As of this post, tt has been fully tested to ensure all parameters work: Display Weights, Display Transit, Display Insurance. It has been fully tested to make sure Signature Confirmation and Insurance work correctly. It has been fully tested to ensure Retail/Internet toggle works. All domestic and international services have been tested. It should work with Stamps.com. In that respect it makes 5.2.2. redundant. None of our clients ever needed dimensional shipping so there has never been a business reason to use V6. We use this version on 2.2 to 2.3. We could post it as V5.3 in the Add Ons once we know for sure it is stable (Monday?) usps.php

    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    Attached is our latest version of 5.2.1. We have changed the module to deal with domestic transit times. Where it was saying Priority 1 Day we have stripped the 1 Day from the service name and put in the transit option. It will only show if Display Transit is set. We noted USPS is returning $0 for some Priority Mail Express International addresses. In particular for Canada where a space preceded the City name a $0 was returned. We have not made any modifications for this. Anyone modifying this or other modules might want to check the rate and hide the option if $0 is returned. usps.php

    Offical Google Checkout module for osCommerce Support Thread

    From what I understand, there is no alternative for online stores. They appear to be pursuing Google Wallet as a solely mobile/Google Play payment method. Sites that only use Google Checkout will need to replace it with the osCommerce checkout or another third party checkout such as PayPal Express Checkout or Amazon Checkout. Sites that use the osCommerce checkout can simply turn it off.
