Re: Drop shipping

I am dealing with odoo on anglo-saxon issues - my results from drop shipping

Case 4 - drop shipping

I have enclosed a video, as big issues with this process. I just followed the standard out of the box process for this as follows:

 - raise a SO with line route = drop shipping. confirm
 - this creates a draft PO with deliver to=unknown and destination location = Customers. Confirm
 - process the DS move
 - approve the supplier invoice


1. No way to invoice the customer (and this should happen as the SO invoicing was based on delivery of order)
2. Purchase journal has debit to 'to be invoiced' account.
3. No stock journal

What I would expect

Stock journal
DR To Be Invoiced
CR Waiting Supplier Invoice

Purchase Journal
DR Waiting Supplier Invoice
CR Creditors

Sales Journal (COS only)
DR Cost of Sales
CR To BE Invoiced

The actual process was ok, apart from I would have expected to see the customer deliver to info on the PO, but we can get around that with PO print. Not being able to invoice the customer was an issue.

please is v8 ready for drop shipping as described in

I can find dest_address_id in the module purchase, but this field gets
never assigned in any other modules but should get filled with the
shipping address from the sales order.

IMO drop shipping in the sense above can not work.

I found a v7 module

does it do the real drop shipping ?
