Looking for help to install USPS


Recommended Posts

I am at the end of my rope. I cannot figure out how to do the USPS module.


I am so frustrated. I paid someone to install osCommerce on my web site and now I need to find some one to get the rest of the installation done for me as he does not do anything but install the software.


Can some one please help?

I cant say that, but if a contribution does not work the first thing to do is to go over and make sure everything has been installed where it should be.

it must mostly be there or it would not show up.

If you know the contribution get your guy to go over it all again, then if you paid someone how come they did not test it?

I have had many frustrations with the shipping part of OsCommerce and can offer you this advice. Dealing with vendor shipping (USPS, UPS,DHL,FEDEX) and attempting to get exact quotes is very frustrating and time-consuming. In the long-run with vendors seperately making updates screwing up the works of the various shipping modules there are going to be continued problems that develop so it seems more realistic to just use the Zones module and setup shipping by weight based on prices you define. US Priority is the same price up to a certain weight. Us First Class for a certain weight is mostly priced the same across the US and US international is also the same across the board by weight. Check the current vendor rates by weight against domestic and international regions then set your zones table by weight with the price marked up a bit to cover yourself. After hours trying to figure out and setup vendor modules, I switched to Zones and in 15 minutes was done. If I have to update the zone prices because shipping costs increase it is done on one line in admin in a matter of seconds. If I have to do that three times a year it would be less time than setting up a vendors module once. OsCommerce is a great platform don't give up. Hope this helps ....
