i just realized that you have to register for WebTools at the usps website. Im waiting for my userid to be sent. Hopefully it works.

I have run into the same issue, and I changed the code in usps.php to use the 'testing' server, and 'testing' API and still it states there is an error. Any ideas where to look???

Make sure your shipping zip code is set correctly. I had this problem when I tried to use my 9-digit zip. When I put in the 5-digit zip it worked.

I'm having the same problem. I put in my USPS User ID and password and selected test... but when I test I get the same text that's found in shipping_usps_error. I'm new to usps module, so I'm unclear how it should function. I'm guessing that when it's in test mode it should display the shipping options.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Ken

 

Please note: I just realized this was in the 2.x section. I am having this problem with 3.0.

I just fixed mine. Here is what I did:

I called USPS customer number 1-800-344-7779. They told me that with third party shopping carts, you just need to be moved directly to the production server. He move my account and 'voila' (sp?) it works!!!

I have had usps installed for over a year now and just in the past few days it stopped working. It is telling my customers to contact me. Is anyone else having this issue? I am also running MVS and haven't had an issue until now.


If the only tool you have is a hammer, all your problems look like nails
