How to Manage Ship Later Orders in Odoo 17 POS

Odoo 17 Point of Sale's advanced feature allows you to ship sold products later. This can come in handy in some situations, such as when the consumer wants to pick up the product later or when you need to order extra inventory before shipping the product.

Assume a buyer wants the product transported to their home rather than being picked up in person. After acquiring the customer's shipping information, the cashier mails the item to their home.

Following the purchase, the consumer leaves the facility. In these cases, the cashier can use Odoo 17 PoS's Allow Ship Later feature.

The Ship Later tool, which allows you to sell things that you do not currently have in stock, can help you increase sales and reduce the amount of inventory that a store must carry. 

If a store uses the Allow Ship Later function, it may be necessary to carry less inventory. This ensures that customers do not have to pick up their products right soon. This could help the store save money on inventory replacement and storage costs. You can also boost customer loyalty and satisfaction by allowing them to choose when they want to get their products.

To use the ship later functionality, ensure that the Point of Sale (POS) module's configuration settings include the Allow ship later option in the inventory section.



By using the Allow Ship Later function, you can specify the warehouse from which the products can be picked up. Additionally, while using the ship later option, you can specify the product's delivery path. 

You can also choose the shipping policy when you use the ship. Odoo has two different shipping policies.

As soon as all products are ready, ideally sooner. Even if the order includes many products, "as soon as possible" means products will be selected as soon as they become available. 

When an order indicates "all products are ready," it means that all items in the order will be picked simultaneously.

Once these changes have been made, start the store and place your order.


To proceed, choose the desired product and customer, and then click the payment button.


After finishing the payment, select the "Ship Later" option on the right side of the window. and confirm your purchase.

To guarantee that the product is dispatched to the customer, confirm that the contact form includes a valid delivery address; otherwise, an error warning such as the one shown below will appear. 

Once these details have been entered, click the validate button to complete the transaction.
