  1. Sorry for posting another topic right below my other one but wasn't sure if you'd catch this.

     

    Jim, if enough people need it--I would really appreciate you coding it for standard post to pull the new rates for MVS. I know it's going to be a bear. But I don't think I'm going to be the only one needing it (I could be wrong).

     

    Unfortunately some of our stuff can't be out in the time that Priority Mail is supposed to deliver.

     

    I really wish USPS would stop futzzing around with their API....

     

    Thanks

  2. Per the latest API document, Standard Post is only to be used for live animals in zones 1 to 4. I figured that it was enough of a mess that most people wouldn't want to use it. If you really must have it, it's going to require a lot of coding to pull the extra data to fill the new fields. Not fun.

     

    Regards

    Oh, bugger. What can we use instead as a sort of default, low cost option? We don't ship any of that live animals or anything. We just ship books and smallish items via USPS, all over the place.

    Would it be Priority Mail? In our cases it seems Priority Mail is not pulling enough in terms of rates--especially for Hawaii and Alaska.

     

    We're a bit lost in this aspect, I'm sorry. We've been using Standard Post for a long time; it was named something else before that.

     

    Thanks

  3. It should work, depending on how accurate the USPS documentation is. Based on past results, that's not very promising. Try the checkout with a full address -- sometimes the estimator's partial address isn't good enough.

     

    If it still doesn't work, please give me an address to test. You can PM it if you don't want to post here.

    Do I need to uninstall the module and then reinstall it for each vendor by the way? I've been just replacing the php file which seemed to work the last time you released a patch.

     

    Thanks

  4. Did you have this module installed and working previously? If not, you need to make the rest of the changes needed for the regular module before it will work.

     

    The only other diagnostic involves counting to position 1755 in the XML string sent to USPS. That's tedious but often shows an obvious flaw in the request string.

    Hi Jim, does this update fix international shipping for MVS? If so, it's not posting rates to my shipping calculator. I haven't conducted a test order but normally if it doesn't post to the shipping calculator it won't post to the checkout process, either. Thanks so much for your help, you've been awesome.


  5. Whoops, I left the debug email turned on and set to my address. I guess I'll find out if anyone tries the first version.

     

    If you have already downloaded this, please replace it with the current version, or at least comment out line 404.

     

    Regards

    Jim

     

    Hey Jim, tried out the file, thanks for your update. However, Standard Post--what we really rely on-- doesn't appear to be pulling in rates. Priority Mail is pulling in rates just fine. It's at least pulling in some rates for our products so it's a step :D I appreciate your hard work.

     

    Thanks
