USPS making breaking changes

7 years ago
I'm using GoDaddy and they only support the older 1.9. Any ideas? I do have Visual Developer 2008 and VS 2008 C#, but have no idea how the things work really. I'm not new to PHP or HTML but ASP.NET is completely new to me. Any help is appreciated.
This would obviously be a web install, so no source code edits. I can and do have access to files on the server through CP.

Thx...

The plugin looks for matching CLASSID in the "Postage" element:

<Postage CLASSID="n">
  <MailService></MailService>
  <Rate></Rate>
</Postage>

But if the new delivery option is in a <SpecialServices> node, then the plugin won't pick it up.   I suspect that the response as-is probably does not ever contain <SpecialServices> node, because the plugin never creates a request with  "special services".  Thus, I don't think there is anything to do, unless you want to support special service requests/responses.

We have to wait until Mon 1/13 for the USPS test site to have the new API:
Updates noted herein will be available in the Web Tools testing environment for integrator access on or around January 13, 2014. The test environment can be accessed, using your production UserID, via the following URL scheme, host and path:
•  Secure APIs: https://stg-secure.shippingapis.com/ShippingApi.dll
•  Non-secure APIs: http://stg-production.shippingapis.com/ShippingApi.dll


I did some testing with the nopCommerce v3.2 and the API noted above and was not able to break anything. So I don't think any changes are required unless some of the new features want to be implemented.

If you have access to the CP or FTP, you could do an upgrade to nopCommerce. GoDaddy supports .Net V4 and MVC3 so you should be able to install all the way up to the latest v3.2.

Upgrading is fairly simple if you haven't modified any code along the way. nopCommerce provides great documentation on doing an upgrade at https://www.nopcommerce.com/docs/80/upgrading-nopcommerce.aspx

If your happy with v1.9, then you'll have to wait for someone to provide you the compiled fixes for the plugin, or dig in and learn to do it yourself!

I'll put it on my to do list if you like, but it won't get top priority right now.

Anyone know if there is going to be an nopcommerce update for the 2014 January 26 USPS Web Tools Update?  Usually this time of year there is a lot more movement or discussion about supporting the USPS changes and I don't see much going on in that regard.  I hope that someone on the nopcommerce team has some news for us...

Thank you mbalog. I actually did both. I upgraded to 3.2 after doing some digging. Now I'm customizing theme layouts in views. I appreciate the quick responses and the to-do list offer.
Thx again...

(@dv8dug, no offense, but the GoDaddy thing is off-topic)

@jlebright
Read the prior page and above.   mbalog did some testing, and there does not seem to be any breaking changes.  As discussed, the added 10:30 service will not be avail in nopC

Thanks.  I missed that part that mablog did test this.  Thanks to mablog!  I guess I was scanning for an official nop commerce or nop commerce mvp response that they had in fact tested it themselves....  Once again, thanks for responding.

The new service being added - Priority Mail Express 1030 AM Delivery is not in the admin configuration screen, so if it can't be selected to be active, it would never be returned as a rated service.

To community:

Today I've tried to investigate how this new shipping method could be added but without any luck. I cannot get it returned even when "uspsSettings.CarrierServicesOfferedDomestic" and "uspsSettings.CarrierServicesOfferedInternational" settings are ignored. If anybody already managed to implement it, then please share your changes. Your help is highly appreciated.

My Host installed nopCommerce for me. How do I go about implementing these changes?
You must have access to your sites files? Thru FTP or a web site admin panel?
Simply replace the plugins files on the site with the ones in the zip file.
See http://www.effective-systems.net/installing-the-usps-fix-for-v26


same situation - my hosting panel installed - but is not v2.x, only 1.9 - totally different file structure.

can anyone point me to where in the code I can update the call string from ratev3 to ratev4? That's pretty much all that needs to be done.

Thanks
