You said you have UPS, USPS and Flat Rate shipping modules ... but now you are saying that you are using Zone Rate ...



What all shipping module(s) do you actually have installed?



1 Only have installed shipping module you are using, if not using them click on them and click REMOVE ... do not leave them set to disabled ...



2 If using Sort Orders on 1 or more shipping modules make sure that you use a Sort Order on ALL shipping modules and ALL shipping module Sort Orders must be unique ...









So if I primarily use UPS and occasionally USPS I need to get rid of the table and zone rate and turn them off?

if I use UPS how does my system know how much I am charging for shipping.

Am I supposed to add site info to my UPS account like I had to with USPS?









Shipping method is up to you ...



UPS and USPS obtain their information via Real Time quotes from the UPS and USPS servers ...



To use the USPS server you need the USPS Web Tools User ID in order to use their servers, this is why you are asked for it when you add the module ...



The UPS server does not require an id ...



As to using the Table Rate table and Zone Rate zones at the same time as UPS and/or USPS I really don't see the point for them as you are getting the quotes based on weight from UPS and USPS ... what would be the purpose of using Manual prices?









Ok I turend off the zone and everything except the UPS and USPS I already have the USPS code in there but I am not worried about that right now.

The UPS is finally 'green' I must have done something right

Now when I pretend to purchase something its still comes up with just my $5.00 handling fee

am I supposed to go into my FTP files and put my own 5:45.00 ect. in there?



because 1 coral might weigh 1lb but it costs $45 to send it how does the UPS module know that









Ok it finally shows up in my calculate shipping as UPS NExt day air which is what I want but it shows $0.00









This is where the code has to be customized to count the number of Coral in the cart ...



Is there anything in the products table that distinguishes the Coral from the other Products such as the master_categories_id for them?

I have not done anything wiht my FTP files I am doing this all out of the zencart admin area.

Do I need to do something with FTP?

each coral weighs 1lb but I am using a heat pack as a 'test' and list it as 1lb my shipping options show up but they all say $0.00
