Dropship For Magento 2

Updated 10 June 2024

Magento 2 Dropship Extension: Dropship is a shipping method where the store owner does not require the storing of products in its location. Rather all the products are in different warehouses across regions.

So when a customer places an order, the shipping is from the nearest warehouse instead of the store using the Magento 2 dropship module.

Dropshipping also complements Magento 2 backorder, where the store owner can accept orders that are not yet available.

Using the Magento 2 (Adobe Commerce) Dropship module, the admin can add multiple warehouses for a product with the quantity.

Basically, the Magento 2 (Adobe Commerce Cloud) Dropship module provides the Multi-Source Inventory concept. Thus, lets the multi-source sellers manage their multi-warehouse inventory conveniently.
