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

Recommended Posts

using CE Frozen, running php 7.0.*

In the error log I see these notices...not a critical issue at this time but for housekeeping purposes would be nice to fix.  Any ideas?

I am not a professional webmaster or PHP coder by background or training but I will try to help as best I can.

I remember what it was like when I first started with osC. It can be overwhelming.

However, I strongly recommend considering hiring a professional for extensive site modifications, site cleaning, etc.

There are several good pros here on osCommerce. Look around, you'll figure out who they are.

Anyone find a module that is compatible with USPS' new 1/27/2019 pricing updates?

Apparently; they are now charging for distance on USPS First Class postage.

On my site; the shipping module no longer seems to offer USPS First class as an option at all. Defaulting to Priority mail only.

@zitt did you get anywhere with the first class issue? I've just had a report that it's charging too much for first class rather than not offering it.

USPS shipping is now zone based so this add on does not work.

It may depend what services you offer. The report I had is that First Class isn't right but Priority Mail is ok.

I thought they already got the address through the interface - can't they work out where it is for themselves?

Or is the issue that format of the reponse from USPS has changed (again) and the module doesn't interpret it properly?

USPS shipping has always been zone based so this is not the cause of any problem you might be seeing. If one or more of the services are not working for you, turn on debugging in your Admin and look at the result.

I beg to differ. First-Class Package Service - Retail was never zone based. Weight only. Now weight and one of 9 zones determines cost.

We give the USPS the From and To addresses and they calculate the cost based on that information. Exactly how they make those calculations are up to them. This i the way this interface has always worked.
