PURCHASE - Odoo 17 Community Book

Drop shipping

Dropshipping is one of the most sensible shipping choices for vendors who do not intend to have goods on hand. With this method, items can be shipped directly from the vendor to the buyer. It will be more beneficial for merchants because there is no need to maintain warehouses and deliveries are made straight from suppliers to clients. Dropshipping allows you to ship goods directly to customers from suppliers or manufacturers, doing away with the requirement for inventory control.

To activate Dropshipping in Odoo 17, navigate to the Settings menu in the Purchase module. As seen in the graphic below, the option will be found under the Logistics tab.
