Recording Drop Shipment Inventory

Even if you don't physically handle your own inventory, you may need to keep track of the limited or limitless supply that you sell from your drop shippers.

By accurately recording your drop shipper inventory, you will be able to avoid overselling and be able to maintain accurate profit and loss information.

 

When a sale occurs, it will reference the inventory source for an item.  You may have the inventory on hand, or you may drop ship it, or you may both have it on hand and have the option to drop ship it.  Based on your preferences, SixBit will determine if the inventory should be pulled from your own physical inventory or from the drop shipper inventory.  

 

Let's take a look at the drop ship supply for a sample item.

For each drop shipper who can supply you with the item, you will enter a drop ship inventory record.  This record will record who you get the item from, how much you paid, when you entered the information, and how many the supplier has  (99999 indicates an unlimited supply).  Inventory will be used from the oldest record to the newest.

 

In the event that you have both physical inventory and drop ship inventory available, you can choose which inventory to deplete first from the "Click here to use drop shipper supply first when filling orders for this item" checkbox.
