Error with USPS shipping

Recommended Posts

We are getting a message:

 

An error occurred with the USPS shipping calculations.

If you prefer to use USPS as your shipping method, please contact the store owner

 

We are using the standard USPS module included with basic installation. We've entered the username and password to our established USPS account. What can this error mean?

Have you entered in your ship from zipcode in the Shop Configuration?

Here are the steps you need to take. (If you are using the username and password for the regular usps account, it won't work.)

 

- Go to http://www.usps.com/webtools/ and select sign up for USPS web tools

- They will send you a user ID

- (Note: Their testing server does not work well, so email them to switch your profile to the production server.)

- After you receive an email from them stating that they have moved you over into the production server, go to admin ? shipping module and enable USPS

- Enter the USPS user ID and select ?production? server

- Update

 

For this to work, you must have cURL enabled on your server. If you don't know what that is, ask your hosting company.

 

Hope this works.
