What is a candidate request?

A candidate request is a draft version of a fulfillment request. They can reserve inventory in Shipvine Logistics and be used as a sort of poor man's order management system, but the intended purpose is to allow merchants to fix up errors that prevent the system from accepting the request for fulfillment, such as an invalid shipping address or a missing phone number. Instead of fixing the problem within your e-commerce system and resubmitting the order, you can just fix it up directly within the Shipvine Logistics website, and then press the "Fulfill" button to transform it into a fulfillment request that we'll ship out.
