    Ideally we would like to have a live USPS Api integration but it does not look like you have this option yet.

    Unfortunately, we don't have an integration with USPS.

    However, if you run a website in which you are embedding the form you should be able to integrate your form with USPS API in it. In this scenario, you'll need to capture the submitted data in your form using POST in a PHP or ASP.NET web page that will interact with the USPS API.

    In this case you'll need to check the USPS API documentation to see what information you need to provide to the API to generate the shipping information you want to display to your customers.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Best Regards.

    I am embeddingthe form, but I do not understand what you stated after that.

     

    We do need the ability to have different pricing. Example:

    Custom High Top Chuck Taylors $124.99 (flat rate shipping in the US)-9.99 done by product

    Quantity

    We also need the ability to send to Mexico or International. We do know the cost to Mexico is $60 

    I am not sure how people would be able to select this as we do not want them to choose the 9.99 option as we would lose all of our profit.

    I apologize for the confusion my answer caused to you.

    What I was suggesting is that if you have a website (which you have confirmed you do), you could use a programming language such as PHP or ASP.NET to build a webpage that will capture the data submitted in your form and use it to interact with USPS API. Basically, the process would be like this:

    1. Your form is filled and submitted.
    2. You use the POST data to capture the entered information in your form and capture it on another web page (the one that runs the PHP or ASP.NET script).
    3. After the data is captured, you can use it to interact with USPS API.

    If you don't have programming skills, then I suggest that you hire a programmer who can provide assistance to accomplish this.

    Regarding the different pricing you're mentioning, I assume that you're referring to shipping prices and I see that you asked a similar question here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/471950 that was already answered by Kiran.

    If you're referring to something else, please let us know.
    Thank you.
