In this blog I will explain Oracle Drop Ship Flow for R12i.
What is Dropship Order - In dropship Order, sales order line creates a requisition line that becomes a PO and sent to your supplier. You instruct your supplier to send the item or configured item directly to your customer only and items never physically pass through your warehouse, and therefore you do not pick, pack or ship them yourselves

Topics covered in this blog are
Drop Ship Sales order creation and booking.
Auto Creation of PO
Receipt against PO
AP against PO
Since in Dropship we don’t receive the goods in our warehouse, SOURCE_TYPE will be “External”, where as for non-dropship orders it is Internal. Once Book, we cannot Changes SOURCE_TYPE.
We can change the SOURCE_TYPE as “External” for an item at the time of order creation, or we can define it permanently in the Item creation Setup, by setting Default SO Source Type = External.
Also as we don’t have any shipping activity in dropship orders, Receiving Transaction Processor (RTP) , triggered after Submitting the receipt will push the workflow from Shipping activity to Fulfillment.
