UPSP invalid Mail Type error

UPSP invalid Mail Type error

I'm a little stuck here, getting this error while trying to get a USPS rate quote:
DomesticRatesV3;clsRateV3.ValidateFirstClassMailType;RateEngineV3.ProcessRequest - Invalid First Class Mail Type.

I called and had my account switched over to the production server, so that part is good now. My code looks correct to me, any ideas?

//WA eCart UPS Shipping Include
if ("" == "") {
//WA eCart (Copyright 2007, WebAssist)
//WA eCart USPS Shipping - USPS

$Shipping_Packaging = 0;
$Shipping_PackageArray = array();

$Shipping_Counter = 0;
$Shipping_Parameters = array();

$Shipping_Parameters["ShiptoCountry"] = "US";
while (($Shipping_Packaging == 1 && !$ecoCart->EOF()) || ($Shipping_Packaging == 0 && $Shipping_Counter == 0)) {
if (WA_eCart_USPS_IsTrueValue("true")) {
$Shipping_PackageArray[] = array();
$Shipping_PackageIndex = sizeof($Shipping_PackageArray)-1;
$Shipping_PackageArray[$Shipping_PackageIndex]["eCart_Quantity"] = (($Shipping_Packaging == 1)?$ecoCart->DisplayInfo("Quantity"):1);
