What is Shippo fulfilment?
Shippo is used in the Consignment Ship within the Hybrid fulfillment 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 (which 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.
