USPS Rate and Rate V2 APIs to Expire Soon

USPS Rate and Rate V2 APIs to Expire Soon

If you are running an ecommerce store that relies on real-time rate lookups from the U.S. Postal Service then hopefully you are already aware of this looming deadline (March 31, 2012) and have made arrangements to prevent this from crippling your business.

If you are running AspDotNetStorefront (our favorite ecommerce package) AND you rely on USPS as one of your Real Time Shipping lookups, you will need to know that you need to be running v8.0.1.4 or v9.1.1.0 of this fabulous package in order to be safe from this problem.

You’ll be able to confirm the version of your website by looking the left column of the admin control panel:

If you are running a store that is v8.0.1.2 or earlier, or if you are running a version that is between v9.0.0.0 and v9.0.1.3 you will need to either contact ASPDNSF about upgrading, talk to your developer about what can be done to patch the problem on your site OR switch to using UPS, FEDEX or some other carrier for your Real Time lookup needs.

I'm a technologist at heart, assisting companies best utilize the Internet to market themselves and sell their products and services online. This includes organizations as large as Google and as small as one or two individuals.
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.

I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.

I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.

I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
