    Our most used USPS quote for 4 ounces went from $4.27 down to $4.16 but the actual rate charged when purchasing that postage went from $2.61 up to $2.66. Not a big deal and assume it is a glitch between the USPS rate quote server and USPS postage server.

    Hi Linda,
    International shipping (Canada so far) is not offering first class option, only priority mail.

    This might relate based on the updates:
    2.1.3 International Price Calculator API Updates (API=IntlRateV2, IntlRate)
    1. First Class Mail International Content Updates: First Class Mail International Letters and Flats content limited to documents:
    o IntlRateV2 requests containing a value (i.e. <ValueOfContents>= any value greater than zero), will no longer return the following First Class Mail International service options:
     <Service ID="14"> <SvcDescription> First-Class Mail&lt;sup&gt;&lt;/sup&gt; International Large Envelope </SvcDescription>
     <Service ID="13"> <SvcDescription>First-Class Mail&lt;sup&gt;&lt;/sup&gt; International Letter</SvcDescription>

    The item in the cart is a 1 oz document (all I sell are documents -- patterns, magazines and books). No first class envelope is offered as a shipping option.

    While haven't gone through to see what it takes to identify in the module that the "value" of the contents is 0 instead of > 0, it does appear (pricing through the usps options on their website) that both First-Class Mail International Large Envelope and First-Class Mail International Letter still exist, just that they are not to have contents of value. That said, it doesn't make business sense to claim that a fabricated/paid for item does not have a value and further to throw on my agreement that the options presented are effectively the only available for commerce (as compared to say a personal letter).

    Zen Cart 1.5.5e, Responsive Classic Clone, PHP 5.6.31, USPS 2015-05-31. USPS First-Class Mail Parcel is not being offered on my site. From the log (see below), it looks like the rate came back at $3.50, but it's not displayed by the shipping estimator.

    First-Class Parcel and Priority Flat-Rate Envelope are the only methods configured for in-country purchases.
