US Postal Service Rate Changes - May 14, 2007May 14, 2007 @ 11:08pm
Effective Today (May 14, 2007), the US Postal Service introduced updated pricing for their services. As FlexCMS' eCommerce package automatically calculates the price for USPS Priority Mail shipments using internally stored pricing information, an update is required for your site to correctly calculate the shipping price with these new rates.

You only need this update if you use the FlexCMS eCommerce package, your store is located in the United States, and you make shipments with USPS Priority Mail using FlexCMS to calculate the rates for you. If you are located outside the United States, or calculate your own Priority Mail rates, or don't have plans to use the eCommerce package at all, you can safely disregard this update.

Before you start, you should create a backup of any important information on your site. While this update has been thoroughly tested, bad things can and do occasionally happen.

To apply the updated rates to your website you will need to perform three simple steps;

1. Download update_14may2007.zip to your computer and unzip the two files located inside it.

2. Upload the new inc-ec-idx.php file to the main directory of your site, replacing the existing one.

3. Upload the uspspm_14may2007.php file to the main directory of your site, and run it from a browser (ie visit http://www.yoursiteaddress.com/uspspm_14may2007.php). The update will start immediately and only takes a second. At the end you'll see a confirmation message asking you to remove the file from your site's directory, which you can then do.

After that you should be all set. If you have made changes to your inc-ec-idx.php file, this update will cause you problems. To manually update your file perform the following:

Find (approx. line 1181):


if ($USPSZone <= 3) {
$ZoneName = 'Zones123';
else {
$ZoneName = 'Zone'.$USPSZone;

and Replace with:


$ZoneName = 'Zone'.$USPSZone;

You will still need to upload and run the uspspm_14may2007.php file to update the pricing information stored in the database.

If you require any assistance applying this update simply reply below and we'll be happy to help you.
