UPS Shipping Module Based On New UPS Rating Packaging API

The original UPS shipping module in the TomatoCart v1 is not usable because UPS had updated their web service API. It is impossible to get the correct rating from UPS via the original module. So, the code for UPS shipping module has been totally updated by me. It works normally now.

The new UPS shipping module will be supported in next version. But, if you don’t want to wait it, we also provide a compressed package for you.

You could download the ups.zip in our Google Drive:

https://docs.google.com/a/tomatocart.com/file/d/0B3Waj5WAXN2NWXgtMllQeVJXU2s/edit?usp=sharing

After that, you have to unzip it and then copy the admin, includes and images directories into your TomatoCart web root directory. You need to override directories and files if your copy process request confirmation.

Note: you need to click the file menu and then click the download link to download the zip file in google drive.

    Hi,

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your site. It looks like some of the text in your content are running off the screen

    Do you mean the problem existing in your TomatoCart store?
