USPS Pickups page not calculating total weight


I've reported this to support via a Zendesk ticket, but that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. So, thought I'd see if anyone else was encountering this issue.


It seems that the USPS Pickups page has changed. I'm not sure exactly when that happened - maybe a month ago? Either way, it seems to be broken for me as it's no longer calculating the total weight of my shipments. 


The problem isn't that the orders themselves don't have weights, they absolutely do. It's that when I go to Shipments --> USPS Pickups at the end of the day, the weight shown there is 0. It used to automatically add up all the weights of the day's shipments and put it there. 



It is counting up the number of shipments for each service over on the left. This occurs even though it's counting the number of packages for each service. It's just not adding up the weights.


So even when I manually adjust the total weight on this page, when I hit "Request pickup" and then go back to the page to see the scheduled pickup, it still shows the weight as 0.  






This is still a HUGE issue and ridiculously annoying! Shipping out dozens of packages and ShipStation can't even calculate the weight for me? Further, it can't communicate the expected weight to the carrier picking up!


And no, I still have received 0 response from ShipStation Support - they seem to have dropped off the face of the earth. Not a great look. 


Might have to move to PirateShip if these weird issues continue, it's just not worth the hassle.
