I was testing the USPS Api, when I got that error.

This is because of the error in my root tag, my request is as follow:

API=Verify&XML=<verifyrequest USERID='207BAZLI7194' PASSWORD='053FG85YP581'><address ID="0">

<address1></Address1><address2>Address2</Address2><city>City</City><state>State</State><zip5>Zip Code</Zip5><zip4></Zip4></Address></VerifyRequest>



As written, I am calling the verify API. What I did wrong was I named the root tag , sure it works on the test server: http://testing.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPITest.dll. But it failed in the production: http://production.shippingapis.com/ShippingAPITest.dll.

Solution:
Just rename the root tag to <addressvalidaterequest>, the xml request becomes:


API=Verify&XML=<addressvalidaterequest USERID='207BAZLI7194' PASSWORD='053FG85YP581'><address ID="0">

<address1></Address1><address2>Address2</Address2><city>City</City><state>State</State><zip5>Zip Code</Zip5><zip4></Zip4></Address></AddressValidateRequest>


Note: It seems USPS is treating address1 as address2 and vice versa. Take note of this :D.

Very unclear written. And you shouldn't display your user name and password!!

How did you find the correct root tag name?!

Sorry, I updated the script container long time ago and as a result broke my first set of posts just like this one. Anyway I've updated this post.

And don't worry about my username and password, it's either wrong or demo account :-)
