Drop shipping allows direct delivery of goods from supplier to customer without going through the retailer’s warehouse. On a usual delivery system, products are sent from your supplier to your warehouse to be put in stock, and then shipped to your customers after ordering. Here are the steps to activate drop shipping in odoo 12.
Purchase -> Configuration -> Settings
For order specific routes on sale order lines,
Sales -> Configuration -> Settings
This is not a important step. If you checked order-specific route on sale, then you need to select route on each order lines.
If you skip this step, then drop shipping will apply to all sale order lines.
Create a quotation and select Routes as Drop ship in order lines.
( route field will be invisible in view If you didn't check order specific route in settings. But it will set as drop ship in default.)
when a sale order with products to drop ship is confirmed a request for quotation is generated by Odoo to buy the product to the vendor.
If you confirm that request for quotation into a purchase order, it will create a transfer from your vendor directly to your customer.
Drop ship Address set as customer location(i.e, transfer from vendor to customer). The products doesn't go through your own stock.
In sale order transfer is set as delivery order.
