You need to first download the package provided in my post and then browse for the install package in the "Upload Package File" area of the installer.
Then, joomla will install the package.

If you have a problem during the install please look here for solutions:

You should NOT extract that package. Once you downloaded it, do like explained there:
www.hikashop.com/en/support/59-hikashop-...install.html#install
but instead of browsing for the HikaShop installation package, browse for that usps plugin file.

You are probably using a mac based computer. I was having the same problem on my apple computer but when I switched to another lab top running window program, I did not have the problem

That function is a core function of HikaShop. If you have that error it's either that you don't have HikaShop installed or an old version of HikaShop installed. So please make sure that you're using a recent version of HikaShop.

Nicolas,

Is it possible that one of your PHP programmers take a look at this plugin and setup "Max order" field, too?
Order limits are handy when client wants to offer free shipping (or shipping discount) because of total order price (say, over 100 USD).

Thanks!

That's a good idea. Here is a USPS package with that option added.

Works great.

A small description what we need it for:
Shop offers free shipping for total purchase over 100 USD.
You need to setup USPS shipping module for max price 100 USD.
Also, create one manual shipping named "Free Shipping" for minimum price of 100 USD.
When user make purchase lower than 100 USD, they will see only USPS shipping methods.
For purchases over 100 USD, they will see (and it will be selected by default) only Free Shipping.

Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

I know you worked on the plugin for this. Just wondering if there is any possibility to add more than the single shipping method for international? The rate it's pulling is really high and 95%+ of what I sell is small and only a few oz. Would you have any suggestions regarding this? I know it's going to be tough for the HikaShop guys to develop anything further for a US Shipping method.

Thanks for any thoughts or ideas.

Best,

Michael

I installed your plugin and it works great. On request: We ship DVDs via media mail but there is not a link in the backend to media mail. Any way you might be able to include that on a future update?

I installed the usps shipping plugin on my two websites. For products that have weight and dimension it is not displaying. It only display when a product does not have weight and dimension. The goal I am trying to accomplish is that I want it to display alongside ups shipping, so that clients will have a choice between choosing either ups or usps. what do I do to accomplish this goal

Please provide a screenshot of your USPS plugin options (hide your credentials) so that we can see what you did.

It's just that you didn't had changed your main weight unit to "lb" in the configuration so the system was converting your weight and because of the approximations it was considered as 0.

I suppose that you're all set.

You can try to unpublish the HikaShop manual shipping plugin. If you don't see any shipping methods on your checkout, it means that the USPS plugin is not working.

Hello,

Thank you for creating this module :) I just got word from the USPS that I have access to their production server which is AWESOME! However, when I tested it and went to the shop, it says that a payment method wasn't configured. I have Authorize.net and Paypal configured already and in the options to choose a shipping method it shows the ones that I placed inside the manual shipping plugin originally but when I enable the USPS shipping module, I cannot choose this option from my payment methods. The shipping calculation pricing is working GREAT and I'm getting that straight from USPS. I just don't know why I cannot choose the USPS shipping option from my payment plugins. I really would appreciate some help with this.

Thanks,

Cat' :)

Hi,
You don't need to select it there.
Just unselect all the shipping methods in that option of your payment plugins and it will apply for ALL the shipping methods, USPS included.
