The world of shipping and logistics is constantly evolving, and the United States Postal Service (USPS) is no exception. In an effort to improve, USPS has introduced a new shipping method called USPS Ground Advantage. This method aims to replace the traditional First Class mail. However, this transition has caused compatibility issues with existing Zen Cart USPS shipping modules.
Compatibility Issues with Zen Cart USPS Shipping Modules
As USPS transitioned from First Class mail to Ground Advantage, it caused a disruption in the existing Zen Cart USPS shipping modules. These modules were designed to calculate shipping rates based on the available USPS services, including First Class mail. With the removal of First Class rates and the introduction of Ground Advantage, the existing plugins became obsolete, leaving Zen Cart users in need of an updated solution.
Fortunately, the Zen Cart authors recognized this and have been working on an updated plugin specifically designed to accommodate the new USPS Ground Advantage shipping method. Currently in its beta stage, the new module is expected to be released soon, providing Zen Cart users with a seamless integration of USPS services into their online stores.
We recognize not everyone can wait for the official release. Our team has successfully installed the beta version of the Zen Cart USPS shipping module for a few of our clients, enabling them to offer their customers the low-cost shipping option they need. If you find yourself in a similar situation and require immediate installation of the new Zen Cart USPS shipping module, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to install it for you as well.
