    I'm currently trying to setup the Advanced Shipping Calculator within Mal's using my UPS account. I have been able to Test my UPS Account and receive the message:

    "The UPS connection is working correctly!"

    From there I have a couple of questions/ requests:

    1) Could someone post up a sample of what their "add to cart" code looks like with the weight in it? (I'd like to see an example of code with items based on lbs ; 2 lbs, 4.5 lbs...etc. does the weight have to be in rounded forms? i.e 1-2-3-4-5 lbs. NOT 1.5lbs?)

    2) Can someone explain/ clarify in the "Shipping Zones" section how and what to do with the 1st option which is: "Shipping is free for orders over:0.00"

    I only offer free UPS Ground shipping for orders over $375.00, any below that, the customer will have to pay for, or they will have to pay for the upgraded shipping service, such as Next Day Air. I cannot seem to remove this option from Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air or 3-Day shipping options.

    Does anyone have any experiences they can share with me with setting the UPS shipping calculator up?

    Thanks to all...

    Best regards,

    1. Weights (units) can be expressed in decimals. 1.5, 2.08, etc..

    2. Shipping is free over - only applies if you change the value from 0. So only put in your value for UPS Ground.
