Drop Ship Order Process


Two ways to do drop-shipments:
Depending on how you want to bill your customer for the drop-shipment, there are two common procedures that you can follow to enact a successful drop-shipment, although the drop-shipment can be invoiced at any time.

1. Invoice your customer before you create the purchase order.
a. You can bill your customer as soon as the order is placed, before you even create a purchase order to send to your vendor.
b. Doing this will help to ensure that you will be paid by your customer in advance of having to pay your vendor.

2. Invoice your customer when you get confirmation that the order has been shipped.
a. You may not want to bill your customer until you get confirmation that the order has shipped, or until you get the vendor invoice in hand.
b. You can wait until you get the vendor invoice, enter that information and bill your customer at that point.
