Getting USPS shipping up and running?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am just getting started with osCommerce and am trying to figure out how to use the USPS shipping module. I created a 'Click n Ship' account and added that user info to the module settings, but it does not appear to be working. What do I need to do in order to get this working properly?


Also what would be the best way to integrate this with the Endicia postage system that we are already using? The thermal lable printer is really cool, so it would be nice to have it integrated somehow.

I was thinking it was easy to set up too...but so far it's not :lol:


guess i shouldn't have left it to the end since i'm supposed to go live next week!


I'm not sure what you've done so far, but after a search, i read that the test procedure often doesn't work, so i followed the suggestion to just have it put on the production server, so if you haven't tried that yet, maybe you'll have better luck :P

do you know what the update is? i looked in the contributions area and they all seem to be modifications to the module to make it do different things (ie give different options, etc). I just want the basic one to work. If I need to install one of the contributions, i'm just not sure which one.


thanks :)

you need an account for the USPS web tools...i think that's different than Click and Ship which just allows you to buy your postage online. You have to sign up for the web tools account, then you are supposed to test it in OSC (though i've heard it almost never works), and then you have to contact USPS again to move you to the production server and change the setting in your OSC to Production instead of test. WHen you sign up for the web tools, they will give you a username and password to use.
