What I did was to search ...includes/modules/shipping/usps.php

 

Somewhere in there you should find the begining of the

 

$request = ... try searching for "request =" and see what follows it. The version we are using has this on line 500:

 

	$request  = '<RateV4Request USERID="' . $Authentication[0] . '">' .

 

So in this case we are using V4.

Can somebody please tell what you do if your line looks like this:

 

       $request  = '<RateRequest USERID="' . MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_USERID . '" PASSWORD="' . MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_PASSWORD . '">';

 

Or like this:

 

$request .= '</RateV3Request>'; //'</RateRequest>'; //Changed by Greg Deeth April 30, 2008

 

Even in the case of the current osCommerce download it still shows V3 in the USPS module code...

 

Can somebody tell me if this is just something that I can change the 3 to a 4 and that's it, or is there more to it?

 

Thanks,

Janet


I find the fun in everything.
