Well I gave up on trying to add WWW USPS Lookup to the drop down but you can
set the type to formula and use something like this.  Works nicely for
domestic shipments.

[ups-query zip="[either][value zip][or][var SHIP_DEFAULT_ZIP][/either]"
mode="GNDRES" weight="@@TOTAL@@"]

I am now having a problem using usps-query for international shipments.  I
have used the demo examples and checked the country table to make sure it
was complete.  I have set all of the variables per the notes in the user
tag.  Even hard coding in every variable and don't get a response.  Looked
at the code for usps_query and the tech docs from USPS and it seems to be
sending the correct information does anyone have this working?

[usps-query service="GLOBAL EXPRESS MAIL (EMS)" weight="@@TOTAL@@"
country="[data table=country col=name key="[value country]"]"]

This in theory should give a response but doesn't:

[usps-query service="GLOBAL EXPRESS MAIL (EMS)" weight="1" country="Japan"]

Any help would be great

Thanks -Sam
