USPS error - TRIED EVERYthing!

Recommended Posts

I am new to oscommerce and I had uploaded osc to my site yesterday so that I could get real time shipping. I had already signed up for webtools even accidentally signing up twice and had already called the USPS to go to production servers two seperate times to see why it's not working. They said that I am on the P. server and that it should be working and that I needed to contact OsC. I have entered in my long digited u-name & pass and clicked on True, input my stores zip code, input weights on the items, gone in and changed my zone just in case and I am truly stumped. The usual message of

" An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations.

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

 

Please help- I am losing work/sales while stumped too. Any help would be cool. Thanks, Wendy

Wanted to add that I made sure that both accounts were active to the production servers and they said if I use either one- it should be working and of course I had checked to make sure that I copied and pasted the right u-name and pass for each one. I am trying to email to make sure that they have enabled me to use the api's that is all that I can think of. Is there any special program that I needed to download as it wasl almost too easy to open the module and input all my info? Maybe it's something simple like that and I'm not all with it?

Did you enter your zip code in the shipping section of the configuration panel?

i had try all as above.. but i still got the same error message :<

 

why haaa??

 

It is very likely that your web host company is blocking http access to your server (possibly shared server). You may need to contact them to see if the can allow USPS to access server so that the rates will appear. They may ask for USPS ip address and port #s... I'm still trying to get USPS to give me that info with no luck.

Same problem ...no one can really tell me what's wrong or what to do...so i think i'll just give up on the USPS mod and just use the Table mod and get the weight as close as i can and stop stressing over the USPS mod.

I got mine working but i still can't get it to accept a weight less than 1 pound.

 

here is how i got mine working...first i had the USPS switch me over to the live server and then i installed an older usps.php file and to my surprise it worked.

 

here is a copy of the usps.php file i used (make sure to make a back up of your current file before replacing it)
