UPS residential or commercial rates?

UPS residential or commercial rates?

My client says that the shipping rates are still a little bit off. They are comparing the UPS rates with one of their other sites which sells similar products. Is it possible to make sure that we are only charging the residential rate? Maybe a quick change in a line of code?

In the WA_eCart_UPS_PHP.php file, I changed line 47 to:

$UPS_XML .= "<PostalCode>".$UPS_Parameters["ShiptoZip"]."</PostalCode><CountryCode>".$UPS_Parameters["ShiptoCountry"]."</CountryCode><ResidentialAddressIndicator>1</ResidentialAddressIndicator></Address></ShipTo><Service><Code>".$UPS_Parameters["CarrierCode"]."</Code></Service>";

And that seemed to work. Is this all I need to do?
