Note:

If the stock import is not set up for this dropship warehouse, the allocation status of the order row will be "Not enough stock". So a warning will be displayed: "There are no allocated products to ship for the order." Please close the notice and proceed with shipping.

NOT CORRECT! CROSS CHECK!!!

  1. In the Ship from pane, select the Dropship option.
  2. Select a Supplier from whom you would like to ship a parcel.
  3. The products available for shipment from this supplier will be loaded in the Goods to ship pane. Ship From address will be updated with the address of your supplier warehouse unless a different is configured.
  4. Click Save button to save the shipment, autogenerate the purchase order, shipping label, or even a packing slip if any were set, and email the supplier the needed documents.

You can check the purchase order created in the Purchasing > Purchase Orders section. The mail, along with the purchasing documents, will be attached to the sales order and purchase order.

The order allocation icon will identify that this particular product was dropshipped by the supplier to your customer.
