Anyone try this with 1.5? USPS doesn’t seem to work on my magento v1.5. I’m planning on using the files supplied in this thread for 1.4.2 to see if they will work.

edit: if you want to see what I’m talking about here’s my website: www.flavorofmed.com

Hi Pete,

This is the first time I’m hearing about USPS not working on 1.5

Can you tell me what’s happening?

Hi Ronda,

The problem I had is that it would give me a ‘shipping method not available’ in the frontend. But, after (edit) re-entering in my username in the back end (I upgraded from 1.4.2 to 1.5) it showed up. However, first class mail doesn’t show up at all, only priority, parcel post and express appear.

-Pete

Never mind, my lighter items are able to get first class mail to show up.

I still have the USPS shipping issues after upgrading from 1.4.0.1 to 1.5.0.1 :(

The only reason I upgraded was to fix the shipping problems and that was a bust.  Now I also have those stupid iPhone and Digital SLR dummy blocks I can’t seem to get rid of.

Follow this link here:  http://www.growdevelopment.com/blog/magento-usps-shipping-calculator-fix

and scroll down to the January 13th post by Daniel.  He attaches the two files needed, (i attached them here too) ... that is what is what worked for me, and make sure you upload to your CORE folder, not local.  I deleted the local ones that i created (I assumed they were supposed to be put in local but Daniel said you have to overwrite the core for something like this).

/app/code/core/Mage/Usa/Model/Shipping/Carrier/Usps.php
/app/code/core/Mage/Usa/etc/config.xml

I had high hopes for this doing it. I had high hopes for making the max package weight 5 lbs doing it, selecting all shipping options, selecting only a few shipping options, selecting rectangular, but nothing does it. I’ve checked the production URL, that my userID works, and USPS still won’t work as an option with Magento. :(

I haven\’t had any luck getting usps setup on magento 1.5 either.
Not sure what I am doing wrong.
I applied for the user id here
http://www.usps.com/webtools/webtoolsapirequestform.htm
and entered my test store url
www.tognar.com/teststore/
got the User ID and password back from usps via email
and entered the user ID into my USPS setup field- My user id is 12 characters long, and I notice that when I enter and save configuration it changes to only 6 characters long (could this be the problem? It is not visible so I can\’t see what is going on there)
I only have the one store, so everything is under default config.
the url in setup is set to
https://secure.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPITest.dll
Enabled-yes
machinable- no (I assume this would only apply to letters?)
I have highlighted the preferred methods
ship to all allowed countries
Show method if not applicable -yes
debug- yes
sort order blank
I just get the message
This shipping method is currently unavailable. If you would like to ship using this shipping method, please contact us.
Please help!
Thanks,

If I signed up for a new API account with USPS and they said they moved me to the processing server.... I know I need to update the new user name I got in the User ID section but.... Is there anything else I need to update to show this new User Name/User ID? For example: is this in any of the files I will need to edit?

i found out that im still having problems with the pay pal transfer for the shipping fees for payment.. Im not sure what is causing the problem more.. not getting paid for the shipping or having the usps api throw the error that its not availabe now..

now its not working after unistalling the multi-table rates extension..matrix estension.. I cleaned up the extras it left behind and now the usps api is not working again.

What I had to do was turn off the transfer shipping methods in the magento admin panel, go to; system/configuration/paypal/express checkout settings-set Transfer Shipping Options to NO . The new Paypal interface will redirect them back to your site anyways to complete the payment process and they can not checkout until they choose there preffered shipping method.

I am totally lost on how to get my USPS shipping to work.  I can only get Library mail to show up on my check out.  I am not a programmer so how can I fix this.  I need to be able to offer the flat rate shipping boxes.
