Need help for usps shipping WAGLOBAL.php ?

I buy the power store 1.0 the WA_global.php pages set up need help?

//Shipping Settings
$WAGLOBAL_Shipping_Enabled = true;
$WAGLOBAL_USPS_User = "XXXXXXXXX"; // get this when you sign up for API access
$WAGLOBAL_USPS_Server = "http://testing.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPITest.dll"; // change this to the live server when you go live


I just got the usps e-mail show me this:

Your profile has been updated to allow you access to the Production Servers.

The URLs you will use for the Production Servers are:
ShippingAPI.dll
ShippingAPI.dll

You should use one or the other.

USPS Is just giving two possible URLs to use.

I have found in some cases that using


ShippingAPI.dll

as the $WAGLOBAL_USPS_Server does not work and I've had to change to:


ShippingAPI.dll

Start of trying:
$WAGLOBAL_USPS_Server ="http://production.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPI.dll"


If that does not work, switch it to:
$WAGLOBAL_USPS_Server ="https://secure.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPI.dll"

For Power Store V1, it is already configured to use the PRIORITY shipping type.

The shipping type is set in the In the WA_eCart/Shipping/usps.php file:

$Shipping_Parameters["CarrierCode"] = "PRIORITY";

wrong shipping fee?

Thanks again. when i set up the shipping on the usps. add one item weight 2 lb. shipping form NYC zipcode from 10013 to 10013: they show me the shipping fee is $10.35 . When i add more product the same price. still for $10.35 to NYC. . When i change the address shipping to CA still is $10.35. i think maybe something wrong. did your have step by step video to set up the powerstore v1. even the paypal still not easy to set up? I think if have the video show us the would be easy to follow !

Thanks again!

usps server api & wrong shipping fees

for me, the secure... usps server doesn't work, but the production server does...

i'm also getting inaccurate shipping fees: for my products that are listed at 1 pound, usps is saying that shipping is also $10.35

10016 to 10028

Less than 1 pound

figured this out, just need to enter: 0.x instead of .x

Ah you mean for the weight of the items?

Yes, if it is less than a pond add a leading 0.

instead of .6, use 0.6
