    bug USPS January 17 2016 K8 - Support Quirks

    While the USPS January 17, 2016 K8 shipping module released today at:
    https://www.zen-cart.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=1292

    I have discovered USPS has changed a few things ...

    The issues are with some country names.

    USPS has always had their own, special sort of way of spelling countries and we try to provide a translation list for these quirks built into the USPS shipping module.

    Unfortunately, I am starting to spot some oddities on some of the more obscure countries ...

    Hence it would be of help if anyone else catches a country that isn't working or some other quirk and post in this support thread.

    If you are reporting a Country issue, please provide enough information about what exact shipping address you are using.

    The best help is to turn on the Debug Log and Zip the log created when attempting the quote and attach it to your post.

    Thanks!

    Works great!
    I did have to change the international minimums to something less than the default for the priority international to show in the estimated shipping costs in the shopping cart. I used the same as the domestic minimums. L:8.625 W:5.375 H:1.625.
    Thanks!

    v1.5.0

    I'm having an issue that did not exist 2 days ago. Did USPS break something? Let's find out.

    Before today, using K7, shipping an 8oz First Class package from the USA to Germany was typically about $14.40. Today it is $21.88. Looking at the USPS website it should still be about the same.

    I updated to this new K8 shipping module and it's still showing $21.88.

    Advice?

    Could you turn on the Debug Log for USPS and try a quote again then then Zip the Shipping log(s) and attach it to your post?

    I have never made a log before but I was trying it out while you were replying (in case you asked). I think I got what you need. The bad number of $21.38 is in there, so I'm hoping it's useful to you. If it's not, let me know and I can try again.

    I have not tried other countries. I guess I'll do that shortly.

    usps_log_K8_germany_problem.zip

    Edit: Just tried UK and Canada. Both were more than they used to be. UK was $21.38 instead of >$15 and Canada was $14.73 instead of >$9.

    Does that mean you changed your International dimensions and now it works correctly?

    Hello Ajeh, having a quite unusual situation with the new version of the plugin I hope you can help me with.
    For what I can gather, the shipping module is duplicating the shipping weight of each product, therefore providing not only the wrong weight but super expensive rates.

    Product A weights 5 oz, and it's entered in the product weight field as 0.3125.

    If I add 1 unit of Product A to the shopping cart, and turning on Display Weight on the USPS shipping module, the weight shows as 0.65 which is twice the weight of a single item.

    My settings for on Configuration>Shipping/Packaging are both 0:0.
