    Please go back and get from post #26 the January 2, 2011 C version of the USPS and do the:

    1 Save Settings

    2 REMOVE

    3 reload the usps.php to:
    /includes/shipping/usps.php

    4 INSTALL

    5 re-configure

    You appear to have the wrong version installed ...

    For those of you with the looking to let the customer choose if they want insurance or not I am currently using this module - Optional Shipping Insurance Module

    The thread for that module is here - Optional Shipping Insurance Module Support Thread

    Now for my question....
    Would it be/is it possible to set up the Package Dimensions Config to use volumes and or volume totals of products to dictate box size?
    This type of a set up would be ideal!
    Thanks

    It does that right now with volume filtering. The volume of all the USPS flatrate boxes is contained within the addon and it uses the volumes of the products to get a total volume of the products within the cart. If the volume of the product exceeds the volume of the box, the box is no longer available for the customer to choose.

    One of my examples is that I know that I can fit 5 of one item within a small flatrate box and 7 of that item within an O--1996L box. If a customer orders 6 of that item, the small flatrate box is no longer an option. When they have 8 of that item, the Regional A flatrate and Med Flat rate boxes and larger are options.

    Maybe I didn't understand your question.

    The way I understand it is that volume filtering excludes the flat rate boxes... What I would like to do with it is to have the box size selected by total volume.

    For example we have a particular item that has to ship in a 8x8x17 box but only weighs 2.5lbs, this makes filtering by weight an issue because we also have smaller items that weigh 8lbs but would fit in a 10x6x4 box.

    If the config used (L)x(w)x(h);(volume) as the parameter it would make this the ULTIMATE shipping module.
    I could probably "hack" my way through this, but it might take me a week to figure it out... Just hoping someone more proficient at php would know if it was possible.

    Can't help you with that but Marco can probably shed some light on that. What USPS class are you wanting to use for your example?

    Volume filtering is specifically for FlatRate boxes since the volume of the FR boxes is embedded within this USPS addon. You just modify your product weights to also include the product volumes.

    I see the problem. If I added a config parameter for volume/dimensions config I guess that could do the job.

    Box Sizes for Volumes
    Code:
    10x6x4;240
    8x8x17;1088
    Then you setup some box sizes for your shop so the quote can qualify for the balloon rate when it's needed.

    My USPS Priority orders has more than quadrupled since I installed this mod! I think it is due to the fact that the USPS first class estimated delivery time shows either 6 days or 7 days, when in fact it is more like 3-4 days from West Coast to East Coast. Have I done something wrong which causes the First Class to show up with higher estimated times?

    Wondering if my orders are being affected by the longer estimated times. *old USPS module had 2-5 days listed.

    Thanks.

    That would be awesome!
    I was thinking about possibly modding the core files a little bit to include a volume field in the product set up as well to achieve this. My idea was to hunt out the weight config stuff, copy it, change it to volume, and add in the appropriate definitions, fields, etc.
    Your way sounds much faster!!!
