- Drop Ship is mere similar to Back 2 Back order except the supplier directly ships the order to customer rather than our inventory.
- Below is the flow chart for your reference.
All steps are similar except two changes:
- Source type as External in sales order line
- Import source as ORDER ENTRY while executing Requisition Import
STEP 1: SALES ORDER CREATION
- Let’s start with placing a new sales order.
- Follow similar steps as Back 2 Back orders.
Progressing Supply Eligible
- Running Workflow Background process.
- Now the status of the sales order line will be Awaiting Receipt.
STEP 2: Requisition Import
- As discussed before, mention Import Source as ORDER ENTRY as below.
- From here we follow P2P cycle.
Querying REQ, PO, taking Receipt as below.
- Corresponding # created:
- Now if you check the status of the sales order line it will be shipped.
- Run the workflow background process.
- The status will be closed which means the order has directly been shipped to customer rather than transferred to our inventory.
Different line Status of the Sales Order:
BACK 2 BACK METHOD
DROP SHIP METHOD
SALES ORDER BOOKING
PROGRESSING SUPPLY ELIGIBLE
External Req Requested
External Req Open
CREATING PURCHASE ORDER
After Performing O2C CYCLE
Not Applicable directly send to the Customer CLOSED
