Drop-shipping means while delivering the goods, you don’t deliver it from the stock, but instead, you place an order to the supplier (purchase order) and ask them to directly delivery those goods to the customer.
To activate this function we have to install the drop shipping in Odoo as a module in your database.
~ Firstly install the Purchase module in your database.
~ Now go to Purchase -> Configuration -> Setting and tick the checkbox Dropshipping click on Save button.
A new route Dropshipping has been created. You can go on a product and tick the dropshipping route. You also need to define to which vendor you will buy the product. Now, each time this product will be sold, it will be drop shipped.
For order, specific routes on sale order lines, you can go to
Now tick the checkbox in front of Order-Specific Routes.
When you creating a sale order, there is an option to select the Route for the Sale order line. Select Dropship as the Route.
When a sale order with products to drop ship has confirmed a request for quotation is generated by Odoo to buy the product to the vendor.
Whenever you confirm that request for quotation (RFQ) into a purchase order, it will create a transfer from your vendor directly to your customer.
Now click on the Validate button.
At that time you can create on the Invoice so click on the Validate button.
