USPS Shipping

Thread began 7/17/2012 9:29 am by BjB | Last modified 7/20/2012 1:45 pm by BjB | 1590 views | 17 replies


Ok, when I start the eCart checkout Wizard and go through the steps for Accept credit cards and Paypal, then select Paypal Website Payments Standard. I then enter the Paypal Member ID, next I Make sure the box is checked for "I will provide shipping and I select USPS as the Shipping provider. (Not sure what to enter into Base rate and Per item rate but can worry about that later.) Then I enter the User ID: for USPS account (I called USPS to set this up and the connection is working).

Ok, here is where I am having trouble with the next few fields. The next choice is "Service type", and it is a drop down list with the choices of First-Class, Express, Priority, Parcel, BPM, Library and Media. The next drop down box is "Default International" that also has a list of items to set as the default International. There are also drop downs for Package Type, Package Size and so on. For each one of these Drop Down boxes there is a Dynamic Data button next to the box which I assume would allow each drop down to be set up using dynamic data so that shipping can be unique for each part listed in the parts table.

I have fields set up in my parts table for the Service Type drop down box , Default International as well as several of the other drop down boxes.

My problem is I can't figure out how to connect the dynamic data using the buttons and make it specific to each part.

Each of my parts ships differently because they ship to different places and are all different sizes, so going through this wizard and simply choosing from a drop down list makes everything ship for one flat rate of $11.35 which is completely wrong.
