4. In the Rate Check window, you may see an error at times (as shown below). If that happens, it means that the shipper does not accept all the parameters you have set for this shipment.

5. In this example, an oversized package with “Small Flat Rate Box” as the Box Shape is trying to have a label created for it. USPS does not allow this shipment and therefore and error is returned. To fix this, modify the package dimensions to something smaller (or choose a different shipping method) and, voila, the rates will show up again.
