WordPress News: WP E-Commerce Users Get Massive USPS Shipping Upgrade

Due to changes in the USPS API early this year, many sites with shopping carts have had to update their shipping code. WP E-commerce is one of the more popular plugins for WordPress users and thousands of sites are selling with it. The GetShopped.org team has been working on an Advanced Shipping Plugin for WP E-Commerce which will be integrated into version 3.8 / 3.9 depending on time constraints. They’ve re-written the entire USPS shipping integration.

An Advanced Shipping Plugin v 0.3.0 – Beta 1 is available now, but don’t upgrade unless you’ve already made a backup of your site. If you’re having problems with you USPS then give this beta a try. Download the free Advanced Shipping Plugin from their site and make sure to check out some of the differences and new features before testing.
