Whoops, USPS did it again.. this time by adding in ® into their international rates.. they claim, as in the usual USPS fashion, that they didn’t change anything.. its a script issue.. Find the updated file link here or download it directly here
It was brought to our attention on Jan 4th, USPS made some changes to their API. We presented a fix to the USPS with insurance module.. Which turns out would not work with CRE Loaded.. CRE Loaded took part of our fix which addressed some of the issues.. Missing, 5 international options.. We have redone the USPS module which should work in all versions on CRE Loaded.
Log in to admin. Visit – Modules – Shipping – Select United States Postal Service Module and uninstall/remove it it is installed
Unzip our file, USPS-CRE3-7.zip
Upload the includes folder to your current sites store folder (which will include an includes folder)
Revisit admin, Modules- Shipping
Find United States Postal Service.. install it.. edit button- Now check which shipping options you want to offer Your customers. Keep in mind, GXG has 3 methods which should typically all return the same rates. You would not want to offer all three.. nor would you want to offer all the Priority methods.. It depends on your store products. If you only sell stickers that fit into USPS flat rate envelopes, the ENV option would be for you.. If all your products ship in boxes, only select the default methods such as PMI (Priority Mail International)

*Changed all international arrays to use the same naming system
*Added comments to line 339. This is where you would replace fullemailaddresshere with your real email address.. this is very handy to debug issues on rates.. Also a nice tool to see when someone requests a shipping quote from the site
