USPS methods 4.2.1 International First Class HELP!

Recommended Posts

I have tried the search feature here and found it to be less than useful when it comes down to actually finding things of need. Anyway.


I'm having issues with this modules' international options. My client really only wants/needs one option for users from other countries that is first class international. I have tried the verbiage changes, removing the dash and adding "Package" to the name,with all options checked in the admin panel I get every option but first class international. I read somewhere that a change needed to be made to two files, I changed the usps.php as recommended, but in reading 28 pages of the help thread for the module I couldn't find any reference to the second file that needed to be changed.


I have changed the first class line in the usps.php to indicate a package, which is the only way he ships overseas. Zipcode is correct in the admin shipping options.


	$this->FirstClassIntType = 'Package';  				//OPTIONS: 'Letters', 'Large Envelope', 'Package'


I'm just about out of ideas here, I have hours and hours in trying to find this answer, tried every solution suggested everywhere on these forums and still am coming up with no FCI options. For the record I have tried an address in both Scotland and Canada for these transactions and still no option available, the test item in question has a weight of 1 pound.


This is the email I get from the report, I don't see any errors in it. The domestic first class report gives an error that the package is under 13oz so it's FCD isn't available. The last option listed is FCI Package with no errors, but why cant I see the option available on the checkout page??? Very frustrating.

Thanks, I tried that and still got all the same options I had before for international. I reverted back to the default shipping module and got the first class international option to show. But in reverting back to the default module I also lose my media mail options for in country users. Media mail will be the primary shipping method for the states, and FCI will be the only method being used for international customers.


Now that I'm back to square one with the shipping module I may try the methods 4.3.0 and see if I have any luck with that. But the last time I tried the alpha module the form in the admin panel just filled every box with the word "ARRAY." I guess if I could find a way to add media mail to my array, and then comment out the rest of the international options I would be just as good as anything for now.
