I love this software… but it’s one roadblock after another. I can’t get the USPS module working. Anyone else out there using 1 and 1 hosting that has got this thing working? I did all the steps and then some. Are there special settings to use only for this test mode? .... Anyone?

Whew!!!! --- I got it working. I know, I know...do some reading.  red face Well I did and I figured out that in my case magento wasn’t sending the correct info to the test server. What I did to get it to work was email USPS and tell then to switch my profile over to production and send me the production URL. They did, then I updated Magento with the info and now it’s working. 1 more down 1,000,000 to go smile

From the reading I did I found out that the test server will only accept specific info as follows.

ZipOrigination: 10022
ZipDestination: 20008 (is set during Checkout process by user)
Pounds: 10
Ounces: 5 (weight can be set for every product on Administration > Products)
Size: LARGE
Machinable: TRUE

To test international shipping use the following values:

Pounds: 2
Ounces: 0
MailType: Package
Country: Albania

or

Pounds: 0
Ounces: 1
MailType: Postcards or Aerogrammes
Country: Algeria

For whatever reason I wasn’t able to input the necessary values according to this info I found. Hopefully in the future documentation there will be more help on this very critical module.
