Express Shipping Only??!!!

I was having some issues with shipping since the change from the post office recently. I think some people are having odd or bad shipping options show up. So I looked here early this week and found a fix for FIRST CLASS which was keeping first class from showing up. Seemed fine and we got a few orders… but just today now I see only EXPRESS as an option for checkout yet all my options are still ACTIVE:



UPSP Priority Mail

USPS First Class

etc



Does changing the names in the SHIPPING METHODs section have an effect on the availability of the option? I mean I did edit a couple of the names to on this page: [url]http://www.rpgshop.com/admin.php?dispatch=shippings.manage[/url]



But I thought that was only a user interface page. If you click edit you can see the

“Shipping service:” field is there and I have not changed that and looks right.



Please help!!! I’m again loosing business from CS-CART.

P.S. Anyone else getting shipping options at my site?

I found one thing that helped a bit… Priority mail came back when I set the setting under SHIPPING SETTINGS - USPS - Container (Priority Mail) to “NONE” instead of rectangular.



(Admittedly I did set it to rectangular myself earlier this week when trying to fix the shipping problems that came up earlier)



So I have to lie or put less data in to make it work at all? Humph.



So Now to figure out how to get first class back.

Shipping service: USPS First Class Mail

Weight: 1 lbs

Error: First Class mail must weigh 13 ounces or less.

Since when has this been the case?



I added an item to my cart that’s under 13 ounces and now FIRST CLASS shows up (keep in mind I did that “First-Class” hack mentioned in other threads).

Hello,

USPS Domestic First class mail is only for packages weighing 13 ounces or less. Over 13 ounces, packages could be sent via Parcel Post, Priority, Express. Seems like cart is correct.

A one pound package can not be sent via first class mail.

I get the same message with Endicia if I try to mail a 14 ounce package and select first class mail.

Not that it matters much now, but I think that’s a recent change or I’m going crazy, as I remember shipping many packages first-class that were over 1lbs.



But anyway, at least the issue/rule is out in the open for everyone to know/see here.
