How to configure Shippo as fulfillment in Marketcube.

In this article, we will discuss Shippo Integration as a fulfilment model and how to set it up.

Shippo is a shipping company integrated on Marketcube which can be used within the Dropship fulfilment model. In this article, we will look at this fulfilment method and will demonstrate how to set it up.
What is Fulfillment?
In E-Commerce platforms, fulfilment refers to how an order is delivered or received by a customer. Marketcube currently offers Dropship, Consignment Ship, Consignment Pick-up, Click & Reserve, and Click & Collect as fulfilment models. 
What is Shippo fulfilment?
Shippo is used within the Dropship fulfilment model as it is a courier service used to process the order/shipment to the desired location to the customer. Shippo provides you with the flexibility to manage shipping rates either from Shippo (has its own Shipping rates and tracking, which they will manage themselves)  or from the marketplace. API keys provided from Shippo will be required to set up Shippo on Marketcube.

How to configure Shippo: 

1. Log in as an Operator>> Click on the Settings Icon >> Navigate to Shipping and Fulfillments >>  Click Show >> Click Fulfilment.

 2. Select  Dropship >> Click on Submit.

3. Then a  Dropship tab will open >> Under Dropship shipping method select Third-party shipping >> Click on the dropdown box for Third-party shipping option >> Select  Shippo >> Enter API Key* >> Click on  Save.

Note:-  * API key is mandatory for the Save option to be enabled.

4. "Autofulfill orderline once the shipping label is generated " is a checkbox. When this is selected the order will automatically be fulfilled in which the condition of the payment should always be in Paid status.

  • "Custom shipping rate at the time of checkout" is also a checkbox. If this is not selected, then the live rates will not be calculated but it can be used to generate the shipping label. If this is selected,  the live rates will be displayed.
  • In the " Carrier option" field you can select a default carrier option. This will be used as a carrier for all the vendors for whom any specific carrier service has not been selected by the operator.

5. Using the option "Select carrier for associated vendors", the operator can select the carrier service which will be associated with the respective vendor. 

  • Custom Shipping Rate Name- Using this option the operator can update the custom shipping rates name which will be visible to the end customer at the time of checkout.

How the order flow works:

1. Once an order is placed, it will be listed under the Orders tab on Marketcube for both the operator and vendor.

2. The operator or vendor needs to accept the order to process it by Clicking on Manage Line Item for the order then click Accept order line.

3. Once the operator or vendor clicks on the Accept order line the order is accepted and the Generate Label button is enabled. 

4. How to Generate and Download shipping labels.
