View Full Version : usps shipping module problems

03-09-2005, 03:43 PM
Can someone tell me what could be causing the problem with my USPS shipping option?

When I try to checkout, on the shipping page where you choose the shipping option you want, it says "United States Postal Service
An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations.
If you prefer to use USPS as your shipping method, please contact the store owner. "

I have installed the USPS shipping option and entered in my user name and password, so I don't know what could be wrong. Any suggestions?

You need to contact usps and have them activate your account on the production server.

I did as stated, but I am still getting the same error message. Any other advise you can give. I am running msmax 1.5 is there another module I must use in order for this to work.

Thank you for your help.

Just email USPS and let them know it's not working after entering the necessary user info. I did this, and apparently, they have to activate something on their end, but do not do it until you request it. Hope it works out for you!

Verify that there is a postal code under oscmax admin's shipping/packaging.
