I received the below email regarding USPS web tools modifications. Do I need to do anything proactively?


Thank you for using USPS Web Tools.

We would like to remind customers that on May 31, 2015 at 12:01 AM, CST USPS Web Tools will be implementing modifications and additional features to the U.S. Postal Service APIs. The following changes may especially impact shipping systems:

Origin ZIP Code required for Priority Mail International to Canada
Modified special services
Modified service IDs
Modified available mail classes for Merchandise Return Services

Updated release notes (version 1.1) are now available on the Web Tools home page at USPS.com/webtools under the Web Tools Announcements section. Included in the release notes are the URLs of the staging environments, which are now available to developers for testing.

I would assume that Volusion and OrderCup are working on this?

Yep, I know what happens when you assume... we've been through this before. :rolleyes:

(and now wondering if that's why we had a Canadian customer that couldn't get shipping rates to return this past weekend? testing, maybe?)
