USPS Shipping for Virtuemart
This software provides United States Postal Service (USPS®) shipping rate integration with Virtuemart shopping cart based on the weight of the products in a customer's cart. If USPS Flat Rate shipping is enabled products will be packaged using length, width, and height of products in the cart when providing Flat Rate shipping rates.
- 2/27/2018 UPDATE Supports USPS February 2018 & September 3, 2017 API Maintenance Release.

- Smart Flat Rate Box & Envelope option This feature checks that the dimensions of all products fit into the flat rate box or envelope. If the products do not fit the flat rate box or envelope option will not be available. This option will only work if dimensions (width, length, height) are added to the products. Also the flat rate shipping methods must be ordered from smallest to largest to exclude larger sized flat rate containers if they already fit into a smaller container. The packing process uses the Largest Area First Fit algorithm to determine if the products will fit into the flat rate container.
- NEW! Multiple shipment boxes are supported by breaking the maximum shipment box weight on USPS's maximum box weight. Therefore the plugin supports cart weights greater than 70lbs. Individual product weights can not exceed 70lbs.
- NEW! Inclusion and restriction rules to limit shipping methods by Virtuemart product categories.
