multiple quantity pricing not updating
« on: May 16, 2011, 22:50:06 pm »

Relatively new to Joomla/VM and setting up shipping now. For the USPS module, I'm only using Priority Mail, Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box and Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope. I have a 3 lb item with the correct height width and length dimensions. Box is the unit i am using and there is one unit per package and one unit per box.

When I change quantities, Priority Mail is the only option which updates pricing. The other two stay at the same rate as for shipping only one.

Am i not configuring something properly, or this should be updating and there's a problem? (I can't imagine something this basic would be a bug caught by me at this point).

Thank you for any help.

If you are using the original USPS module that comes with VirtueMart, you should be aware that:
a) The service names have changed, therefore breaking most of the services the module can handle
b) It only considers total cart weight, nothing else

You should try USPSv4 or USPSv5, both available from these forums.

Big thanks - this is always a problem with many systems. Multiple order qty's and UOM's
