Order Management allows you to enter drop-ship sales orders as well as standard sales orders.
It means you can receive orders for items that you do not stock or for which you lack sufficient inventory, and have a supplier provide the items directly to your customer.
The best can be described as:
These are the following activity takes place when you have drop shipment
- Warehouse Item
- Ship order
- Shipment notification
- Order Entry
- Enter customer
- Enter order
- Demand order (optional)
- Cancel order (optional)
- Close order
- Create and send Purchase Order
- Enter shipment notification in system
- Create invoice
- Collection of payment
hence, drop ship order items ship directly from a supplier to the customer of the order processing company. A purchase requisition, then a purchase order, is generated to notify the supplier of the requirement. After the supplier ships the order, it notifies Purchasing to enter this information in the Purchasing module.
