USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

Recommended Posts

Ripping the whole site down again and deleting the database as well... I will try to install this one more time... When I install this the only USPS mod to install from the shipping mod inside the new install is an old one that only has Library mail for some reason. Its included in this package so I have installed it 3 times now from fresh installs of the whole software. Maybe this time I should just do the upgrade to the files before installing any USPS mod ?  I am using MOJO from my web host to install oscommerce for me. Seems to work fine.. I did test Zen Cart out and their USPS mod worked fine but I hate their program. Would much rather use oscommerce for my online store. Hope this works this time or its time to move on to something that works.. After days of trying to cure this problem and with reading so many wrong things telling people how to set this software up has become a nightmare. Anyway thanks for your time.. Wish me luck..

Do not install the USPS module that ships with osCommerce. If you have installed it, uninstall before installing the correct module.

I suspect that your "mojo" installer is messing up. Delete that install, download the files from here, and use the osCommerce installer. You can leave the database, but check that the database user has privileges to write and modify tables.

If you did all that, did you remember to modify the admin/modules.php file on your fresh osC 2.3.4 install? I saw kymation post about that earlier, but didn't see any response as whether it was actually completed. Your admin/modules.php file should look something like this for a osC 2.3.4 install (also attached to this post for convenience):

Thanks for the help everyone. After tearing it all down for like the 5th time now I am making headway. Using the file from Kevin posted took care of it saving my info. Now I am in a fight with USPS on keepin my account active. Called again this morning to find my account was deactivated again and they have no reason why this keeps happing. Two days in a row now they have done this. I hope once they get their end taken care of things will work for my new Online store.

 

Thanks again for all your support and help.

Ok they say my account is working now but I keep getting this error when I do a test on checking out:

 

"Shipping is currently available for the selected shipping address. Please select or create a new shipping address to use with your purchase."

 

Anyone have a clue on what the problem is now ?

Do you have a zone set in your USPS module? If so, remove it and try again.

 

If there is no zone set up, you have no valid shipping method for that address. Try adding more shipping methods that would apply to that address.

Not what I meant. In your USPS module setup, which Shipping Methods do you have selected?

Priority Mail is all I can offer at this time to match up the real cost until USPS gets the Standard Shipping problem fixed.

You say "Standard Shipping", but are you referring to Standard Post? If so, you might run into problems since USPS has changed the requirements for that method. You can only use Standard Post for USPS Shipping Zones 5-9, While USPS Shipping Zones 1-4 are only for the mailing of hazardous materials, live animals, or other items required to be shipped by ground/surface transportation. If you're shipping those items, then there might be an issue with this add-on since I don't recall this module having RateV4Request / Package / Content / ContentType ever being programmed into it.

 

That being said, you should probably use Priority Mail for general shipping of packages and then add your own handling fees to balance costs.

Yeah I been running into that problem with their online system. Priority mail is to much on some of the things I ship. One item only cost 3.25 to ship but priority mail makes it 5.25.. Will figure away around this.

If your total package weight is under 13 ounces, consider using First-Class Mail® Parcel as your shipping method? Then fiddle around with your tare weight settings, individual product weight, and handling costs per shipping service (which can be negative if I recall). I believe First-Class Mail® Parcel has a max shipping cost of $4.12 for a 13-ounce-total package. Or depending on package weight, fully utilize the Priority Mail services because it comes with $50 insurance anyways and is generally a faster shipping service. Standard Post service pulls a $5ish rate anyways.

My problem is I ship from .4 oz all the way up to 50 lbs. Its going to be a hair puller for sure.

If I may – Not sure if this is now your problem but it almost sounds like it.  USPS uses US shipping weights.  For some reason I have found that the USPS program does not.  So I put to gather a chart that converts actual lb to web lb that will calculate the shipping cost to match USPS rates.  I have used this for the last 3 years.  Say you weigh your package and it weighs 4lb, in item maintenance you will till it weighs 3.55.  The USPS program will charge the correct amount for the shipping as if it weighed 4lbs.  I have no clue as to why. 

 

You might have to do as I did and sit up a test item so you can play with weights to see what will = 50 US lbs.  I don’t ship that heavy so I don’t have that one to share.

 

I have attached a file and hopes that will help get you started.lb weights chart for usps.pdf

@@dculley  That should not be necessary. The USPS module uses the weight supplied by your store. If that weight is wrong, the prices will be off. Check your Tare settings -- that's the most likely cause of added weight. If both of the Tare settings are zero, I would check the settings in the USPS module.
