There isn't an automatic stock movement to the Customer, it happens when the Delivery order is processed manually at dispatch.

You can configure the Warehouse to add additional manual steps before dispatch:

Review the documentation:

This works in v8 and v9 (both Editions).

I'm not sure I was precise enough to describe what I would like to achieve. I just installed Webkul Odoo/Opencart module to exchange orders and some data between Odoo and OC. Once customer confirm His order it's automatically sent to Odoo, then if order is confirmed in Odoo/invoice/paid(confirmed payment) order is processed and product is moving (this is the part I would like to skip/avoid) from "Stock" to the "Customer" (neither of these information is true :) because product isn't in Stock but for example location 1A1 so Warehouse operator must create a new move from location "1A1" to production or somewhere else) Or I should create some pull/push rules to let the system know from where this product should be taken in first place then if it's empty next location etc? I never done it before so that's why I'm asking. Requirements of My company not really matching to what Odoo is capable of. All We need is receive the order, confirm it (for accounting) then just pass the invoice to the warehouse, pick up the product and send. The way as it is now is far too complicated. Especially if I don't want increase amount of steps in processing orders but decrease, to make it quicker and simpler. So what can I do apart of developing/creating a completely new system ?
