Resolved - USPS Canada Parcel Rate Zone Change causing issue??


Recommended Posts

One of my test shipping addresses is to Canada. Just noticed that there us an extra s/h price choice on Checkout that only shows my handling charge. It has NO shipping choice name by it.

Here's part of the Request Log:

 I know USPS has changed to Zone charges for US to CA. I tried the same address on the Calculate a Price page of usps.com, and it asks for the From and To Zip codes for Canada now.

Here's the screenshot of this odd Checkout:canadashippingissue.thumb.jpg.55dd2fc153

Ok, so we have:

Service ID=1: Priority Mail Express International
Service ID=2: <Error>
Service ID=12: USPS GXG Envelopes
Service ID=15: First-Class Package International

The Origin ZIP Code and the Destination Postal Code is required for Priority Mail International when mailing to Canada.

Unchecked, cleared all cache, emptied basket, and logged out of customer I was in store as. Tried same thing, used Shipping Estimate this time for same Canada address - got same results. When I use another country address I do not get this issue. So it has to be something to do with this recent postal change to Zone charges for Canada.

The Parcel rate is there, but it's AFTER this weird handling choice.

In the USPS module's shipping.class.php file, make the following edit near the middle of the file:

/* NEW */	$xml->writeElement('OriginZip',$this->_settings['ziporigin']);
/* NEW */	// $xml->writeElement('DestinationPostalCode',trim($delivery['postcode']));

		}
		$xml->endElement(); ## End Package
		$xml->endElement(); ## End RateV4Request

		## Send request
		$request	= new Request($this->_url, $this->_path);

When I went through the online Calculate Postage for the same Canadian address I had to input the destination zip. Of course at that point they give you ALL the shipping choices, so for Priority it would have been needed. So I tried uncommenting your line, but it still throws the error message.

It's using RateV4. Shouldn't it be using RateV2?

I know it says some don't need destination zip, but I'm thinking it does, so it can show all possible shipping options I have checked. What if I took the Priority Internationals off to see if that worked?

NO - that didn't work, either. But here's the  log entry:

First, make this edit:

From:
		/* IMPORTANT NOTE - USPS XML Parser is so totally shitty you have to send the XML elements in the correct order!!??!?! */
		$xml->startElement($this->_api.'Request');
		$xml->writeAttribute('USERID',$this->_settings['username']);
		$xml->startElement('Package');
		$xml->writeAttribute('ID',0);

		## Calculate Lbs/Oz
		$this->weightLbsOz();
		
		// the following should be 'country_id' NOT 'country'!  If you think otherwise, talk to Bill!
		if($delivery['country_id']==$GLOBALS['config']->get('config','store_country')) { // National "RateV4Request"
			$xml->writeElement('Service',"ALL");
			$xml->writeElement('ZipOrigination',$this->_settings['ziporigin']);


To:
		/* IMPORTANT NOTE - USPS XML Parser is so totally shitty you have to send the XML elements in the correct order!!??!?! */
		$xml->startElement($this->_api.'Request');
		$xml->writeAttribute('USERID',$this->_settings['username']);

		## Calculate Lbs/Oz
		$this->weightLbsOz();
		
		// the following should be 'country_id' NOT 'country'!  If you think otherwise, talk to Bill!
		if($delivery['country_id']==$GLOBALS['config']->get('config','store_country')) { // National "RateV4Request"
    		$xml->startElement('Package');
	    	$xml->writeAttribute('ID',0);
			$xml->writeElement('Service',"ALL");
			$xml->writeElement('ZipOrigination',$this->_settings['ziporigin']);

Then, make this edit:

From:
        } else { 
            // International Rates

            $xml->writeElement('Pounds',$this->_lbs);
            $xml->writeElement('Ounces',$this->_oz);


To:
        } else { 
            // International Rates
            $xml->startElement('Package');
            $xml->writeAttribute('ID',0);

            $xml->writeElement('Pounds',$this->_lbs);
            $xml->writeElement('Ounces',$this->_oz);

We have just moved two common statements from the comman area to each of the specific API areas.

Please leave your settings as they were.

It seems that even though 'OriginZip' is now required, it is still only understood when IntlRateV2 is of Revision 2.

So, make this next edit:

From:
} else { 
            // International Rates
            $xml->startElement('Package');
            $xml->writeAttribute('ID',0);

            $xml->writeElement('Pounds',$this->_lbs);
            $xml->writeElement('Ounces',$this->_oz);


To:
} else { 
            // International Rates
            $xml->writeElement('Revision',2);
            $xml->startElement('Package');
            $xml->writeAttribute('ID',0);
 
            $xml->writeElement('Pounds',$this->_lbs);
            $xml->writeElement('Ounces',$this->_oz);

I put the International Priority choices back, made the edits, and tried again. Still error message.
