I just emptied the ups_cache table, and it created the following new row
again with $10.29.
code weight origin zip country shipmode cost updated
1 5 05404 90210 US GNDRES 10.29 1250427373
Checking again at the UPS website today with their on-line calculator, I
get the following price for the same Ground Residential shipment:
UPS Ground 13.56 USD
Charges Per Package 14.03 USD
Shipment Total: 14.03 USD
Is this happening to anyone else?
