Quick question... Who offers the best web hosting? Yahoo? iPage? Angelfire? etc.? Looking forward for any answer or 2. My other question... I am at the end of my rope. I cannot figure out how to do the USPS module..

I am so frustrated. I paid someone to install osCommerce on my web iPage site and now I need to find some one to get the rest of the installation done for me as he does not do anything but install the software..

Can some one please help?..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Comment #1

That error might be symptomatic of a wider problem, can you edit / install any of the other shipping options or payment modules?.

Give it a try and let us know, have a the feeling I know what it si just need you to confirm it.


Comment #2

I can install the flat rate and zone rates. But nothing happens when I try to install the USPS. Is there an update to this cart that will make this run properly?..

Comment #3

Oh if all of them were the same I would have a pretty good idea what it was..

You sure that the contribution was uploaded / install correctly?.

It might be it cannot find the files needed..

Comment #4

I am not sure. I hired someone to install this. What should I try to reinstall to make sure it works. So do you think that the whole file or this module wasn't uploaded properly?..

Comment #5

I cant say that, but if a contribution does not work the first thing to do is to go over and make sure everything has been installed where it should be..

It must mostly be there or it would not show up..

If you know the contribution get your guy to go over it all again, then if you paid someone how come they did not test it?..

Comment #6

I have tried about 4 different usps and none of them have worked can someone point me to a contribution usps that works..

Comment #7

I dumped this cart. I was so frustrated at the lack of help that I went to a real cart. Of course, I have to pay for it but one gets what they pay for with "free" and that was not much.

I have had many frustrations with the shipping part of OsCommerce and can offer you this advice. Dealing with vendor shipping (USPS, UPS,DHL,FEDEX) and attempting to get exact quotes is very frustrating and time-consuming. In the long-run with vendors seperately making updates screwing up the works of the various shipping modules there are going to be continued problems that develop so it seems more realistic to just use the Zones module and setup shipping by weight based on prices you define. US Priority is the same price up to a certain weight. Us First Class for a certain weight is mostly priced the same across the US and US international is also the same across the board by weight. Check the current vendor rates by weight against domestic and international regions then set your zones table by weight with the price marked up a bit to cover yourself.

If I have to update the zone prices because shipping costs increase it is done on one line in admin in a matter of seconds. If I have to do that three times a year it would be less time than setting up a vendors module once. OsCommerce is a great platform don't give up. Hope this helps ......
