1) I port the code to the latest version of VirtueMart so that any security updates or bug fixes made to the core files I modify are also included in my module.

For the most part, the module will work with any recent version of VirtueMart.  But of course, my files will overwrite core files and you could lose security updates.

You can upgrade VirtueMart and the re-apply the module, most of the time it should work.  But it is not something I recommend, because I do not test compatibility for older module versions with every release of VirtueMart.  It may break.

2) Any amount is fine.  The more, the merrier, and the faster I'll release it publicly, but any and all donations are appreciated!  I've received anything from $5 to $50 in the past.

Some modules are released right away because another client has paid for my time to add a feature or port it to the latest VirtueMart.  I will not always need to use the "donation" basis.  But again, the module *should* work with an upgraded VirtueMart, as long as you re-apply the files, and keep in mind that you've probably lost a security update or two by doing so.

I *always* recommend taking a full site backup before any upgrade anyway.  Better yet, make a copy of the site and try the module out on the copy first.  Akeeba backup is a really nice, free component for doing that. I highly recommend it.

Yes I do use Akeeba - its amazing.

I am confused about something. If I donate money to you does that grant me access to download the update privately, or do I still have to wait until enough people (money) donate before I can use it?

You see, I have no problem paying I just do not have any money, but I am sure I can come up with something. I also already have VM 1.1.7. I can see that you spent a lot of time and DO deserve compensation. I am just trying to figure out what I need to do in order to use this soon. Can you clear this up for me?

No waiting.  Once you donate, I'll email you a copy.

Great I will do that later today. It will not be much. I will try to remember to donate more when my financial situation becomes better.

I installed this plugin and now my 'Admin/Configuration page has no 'Save' option for any of the settings.
Please help. What do I need to do to correct this?

Hello Lowmips:
I'm Getting a massive discrepancy on shipping costs for a product that ships in a 48" x 24" x 24" - 28lb carton. (All other products in shop seem to be accurate) The Customer wholesale quote from their UPS rep is $148.23, what the site is returning is $16.25. Here is the debug info:
Begin Debug-------
Shipment::addPackage() Adding a new unbundled package
Shipment::addPackage() - Package Number: 1
Shipment::addPackage() - Package is Unbundled
Shipment::addPackage() - Maxweight: 70
Package::addItem() - ***** Adding item 206 ("O" Gauge Comet) to package #1 *****
Package::addItem() - Package weight is now: 32.2
Package::query_rates() - Querying for Source: US/80205 , Destination: US/80521, Weight: 32.2
End Debug-------
We have the cost padded so the weight return is a little higher, this is expected. However, what I do not see is accurate info being passed re: the dimensions, which are what kicks this into the high-rate category in the reality of the UPS billing.
VM 1.1.4 on Joomla 1.015. UPS module upsv2.2010.08.10. Can you please offer some assistance? I can send you admin login info if you provide your email to me. Many thanks markt[at]xplore-design[dot]com

Have you configured the module to declared product dimensions for unbundled products? (main configuration, shipping tab)

I have configured the module, per your last response. As mentioned in y original post, the calculation seems to work as expected for all packages except this rather large and heavy package. I still get this massive discrepancy in shipping cost. What to check next?

If it is consistently wrong, you could use the shipping modifier feature to tweak the final price.  Otherwise, it's hard to tell what is going wrong with the limited amount of info you've provided.  Check the XML request/reply as well.

Hi Reggie -

I downloaded and installed the free version of your UPS module and it seems to be working well except for one thing.  I don't get the Declared Value cost in the rates.  

In the VM admin, I've checked the "Declare Package Values" box (under admin->config->shipping).  I've also tried selecting the "ship insured" box under the individual product, but that doesn't seem to have any effect.  Is there something else I need to do?

Can you put the module in debug mode (show extra debug info), and try the checkout as an admin? Email me your findings.
