Lesson 4: Sell Nonstock Items

Sell Nonstock Items

Sell Nonstock Items : Companies usually sell nonstock items to customers as drop shipments or special orders. Drop shipments are sent directly from the vendor to the customer. Special orders are sent to the company’s warehouse before they are sent to the customer.

Drop shipments are used when a company wants to avoid handling the physical goods in an order, such as stocking and delivering, but wants to fulfill the customer’s request and include the transaction in a calculation of cost of goods sold and profit.Microsoft Dynamics NAV Trade

When a company makes a shipment to a customer that consists of both regular and nonstock items, or wants to handle all transactions with the customer in the same manner, the company might process the sales order as a special order.

This lesson shows how to process the sale of a nonstock item by using a special order. The process for selling nonstock items by using drop shipments resembles special orders. A complete description of the drop shipment process is provided in the “Drop Shipments” lesson of “Sales Order Management” in this training material.

Demonstration:  Sell a Nonstock Item Using A Special Order

Scenario: Customer 10000 orders three units of item 4100. Item 4100 is a nonstock item that must be purchased from vendor 40000. Because this customer only accepts shipments from CRONUS, Susan, the order processor, specifies the sales order line as a special order. Microsoft D365.

Alicia, the purchasing agent, creates the corresponding purchase order. After Alicia receives the shipment from vendor 40000, she then posts vendor invoice 11234. At the same time, Susan ships the items to customer 10000 and posts the invoice.
