USPS Shipping Module for Zen Cart

USPS has released a new update for those of you who use USPS shipping on your website.  (to check if you use USPS, in your admin mouse over Modules, click on Shipping and see if there is a green button to the right of USPS).

While I am sure the following list is in no way comprehensive, below are some of the changes I have dug around to find:

This update includes rate increases and changes to Extra Services (EG:  certified mail, insurance, etc.)

First class domestic package rate has increased.

Priority Mail® International and Priority Mail Express® International prices have increased. The prices for Priority Mail International to Canada will be determined based upon Zone, not just weight.

Linda, one of the Zen Cart developers, just released a new update  if you are able to install the module yourself.

If you use USPS as a shipping module, it should be updated.  If you need us to install the update you may order it from our website here.  As usual, installs are done in the order they are received.  If you cannot figure out if you have USPS installed or not, I can check it for you, but you will have to order from the link above and if you do NOT have USPS installed, this will not be refunded as my minimum troubleshooting charge is more than this update.

Also very important… when you check out – PLEASE click on the graphic on the checkout success page that says to go to a secure form to input your information so we can access your server and your admin. Once to our data collection site, please click on Module Installation.  It is important that you enter the correct info, so as to not delay things.
