    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Can I track a package using Shippo when I purchased the label at the Post Office?

    • A.

      No, if you purchase the label directly from the carrier, you cannot track it using Shippo.

    • B.

      No, Shippo can only be used for tracking labels purchased using Shippo.

    • C.

      Yes, you can track shipping labels created using Shippo and outside of Shippo.

    • D.

      Yes, you can track shipping labels you purchase at the Post Office, but not if you purchased them on usps.com

    Correct Answer
    C. Yes, you can track shipping labels created using Shippo and outside of Shippo.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that you can track shipping labels created using Shippo and outside of Shippo. This means that even if you purchase a label at the Post Office or through another carrier, you can still use Shippo to track the package. Shippo is not limited to only tracking labels purchased through their platform.

  • 4. 

    Shippo can be used to retrieve rates using the API, but you must purchase the shipping labels using the web app.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Shippo can be used to retrieve rates using the API, and it also allows users to purchase shipping labels using the API. Therefore, the statement that you must purchase the shipping labels using the web app is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You can retrieve rates using QUOTE as your object purpose, but you cannot “purchase” that rate. The rate object must have the object purpose as PURCHASE if you want to purchase that rate for a shipping label.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the rate object with the purpose of QUOTE allows you to retrieve rates for shipping, but it does not allow you to actually purchase the rate and generate a shipping label. To purchase a rate and generate a shipping label, the rate object must have the purpose set as PURCHASE.

    If you already know the carrier and service level you want to purchase, you can use single call label creation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because if you already know the carrier and service level you want to purchase, you can use single call label creation. This means that you can create a shipping label with all the necessary information in just one call, streamlining the process and saving time. This option is convenient for those who have already made their decision and do not need to compare different carriers or service levels.
