Article content

How can i find why?

1.Turn on the virtuemart debug information
go to
and set the parameter Enable debugging messages to" for all"

2. Go to the frontend 
The request as well as the response from USPS are displayed

You may get this response:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Error><Number>-2147219100</Number><Source>Rate_Respond.;clsRateV4.UnpackRateNode;SOLServerRates.RateV4_Respond</Source><Description>Missing value for ZipOrigination.</Description><HelpFile></HelpFile><HelpContext>1000440</HelpContext></Error>

Missing Zip origination means that you have not entered your shop information. USPS needs this the ZIP origination, and the ZIP destination, in order to give the correct quotes.

How to solve it?

Go to
components>virtuemart>Shop>Shop and fill in the informations on the tab "Additional informations"
