Dropshipping a Sales Order is supported in Megaventory in the following approach. A Custom Order Flag can be used to flag the Sales Orders that are to be drop-shipped. This is handled in the localization module that can be found under Settings > Localize. For example "Custom Order Flag 1" can be changed to "Drop Shipment".

The Dropshipment Flag should be set when creating the Sales Order which will be dropshipped directly from your supplier.

One extra Inventory Location should be created. This location will handle dropshipment operations and should be named accordingly; for example "Dropship Location". This location will be used virtually to "instantly" receive goods from the supplier and ship those to the client. It will hold zero stock always.

The above steps have to be performed just once.

Those specific Sales Orders which will have the "Dropshipment" flag should be approved to the above Dropship location and the related Purchase Orders should also have the "Dropshipment" flag set and should also be approved to the same Dropship location.

Now, when a Purchase Order that is flagged as Dropship is ready to be shipped from the Supplier, it should be "Received" by you in the Dropship location. That will adjust correctly the costs for those products and momentarily increase the stock in this location. Then, the related Sales Order should be shipped. That takes care of adjusting your profits and bringing the stock back to zero in the Dropship location.

Copying and pasting the items from a Sales Order to a Purchase Order is a really quick process when the Clipboard functionality is used.
