      The rates returned by the plugin are much less than the actual cost at postal service. Having the same issue regardless of the package size variables I am using for settings.

      Please send your request and response XMLs. The rates do match, but getting the initial setup right is indeed a pain.

      email them to vinny [at] usestrict [dot] net.

      I realized that the issue is that it is sending the weight in ounces and not pounds. What format do I enter the weight to make it send in pounds, or must I enter ounces?

      It’ll use whatever is in Admin -> eShop -> Shipping -> Weight unit and do any necessary conversions before sending it to the API.
