Was this information Helpful?

Hello there..

well, I have created a simple application for generating Shipping Rates from Ups & Fedex servers...earlier i was working with the simple request xml passing only zipFrom, zipTo, & weight to the server & getting back the ground rate...
But now, i want to add the dimension parameters as well, to this request xml to get the rate more precisely...here, i tried to add the dimension part to the xml but the response xml sent the error message:

UPS Response Error : "Missing/Illegal Combination of Package/Dimensions"
FedEx Response Error: "Unknown Error"

I dont know what wrong is happening there...so, need your help in this...

btw, here is my UPS Request XML:

...
   <?xml version=\"1.0\"?>
    <RatingServiceSelectionRequest xml:lang=\"en-US\">
     <Request>
      <TransactionReference>
       <CustomerContext>Rating and Service</CustomerContext>
       <XpciVersion>1.0001</XpciVersion>
      </TransactionReference>
      <RequestAction>Rate</RequestAction>
      <RequestOption>Shop</RequestOption>
     </Request>
     <PickupType>
      <Code>" + pickupType + "</Code>
     </PickupType>
     <Shipment>
      <Shipper>
       <ShipperNumber>" + UPSAccount + "</ShipperNumber>
       <Address>
        <PostalCode>" + zipFrom + "</PostalCode>
       </Address>
      </Shipper>
      <ShipTo>
       <Address>
        <PostalCode>" + zipTo + "</PostalCode>
       </Address>
      </ShipTo>
      <Package>
       <PackagingType>
        <Code>" + packageType + "</Code>
        <Description>Package</Description>
       </PackagingType>
       <Dimensions>
        <UnitOfMeasurement>
         <Code>IN</Code>
        </UnitOfMeasurement>
        <Length>" + length + "</Length>
        <Width>" + width + "</Width>
        <Height>" + height + "</Height>
       </Dimensions>
       <Description>Rate Shipping</Description>
       <PackageWeight>
        <UnitOfMeasurement>
         <Code>LBS</Code>
        </UnitOfMeasurement>
        <Weight>" + weight + "</Weight>
       </PackageWeight>
      </Package>
     </Shipment>
    </RatingServiceSelectionRequest>
...

Re: Error While Adding Dimensional Values to the UPS/FedEx Shipp

Does this post have anything to do with Ubercart? Ubercart has both UPS and FedEx shipping modules, so you don't have to do any of this yourself.

Re: Re: Error While Adding Dimensional Values to the UPS/FedEx S

No, I am not using Ubercart...I am a newbie with the shopping cart...so I was creating my own simple module for using it into my company's (where I work) website...
That's why I was trying to create this XML with Dimensions, but the response XML sends the error as described..

So, can you help me in this?
