2011 U.S.P.S. Rate Update

In January 2011 the United States Postal Service (U.S.P.S.) implemented a rate adjustment. As part of this adjustment they also altered the names of some of their international shipping services. Users of the Postage Rate calculator who have the affected methods in use will find they no longer appear as options. The solution is to:

  1. Open your database and modify the ssShippingMethods table as follows:
    • Increase the field ssShippingMethodCode to a length of 110
    • Increase the field ssShippingMethodName to a length of 110
  2. Open the Shipping Calculator Method administrator
  3. Change the shipping code for the old methods to those of the new methods. See table below for details
  4. Click the Save button
