Below, you can see our Magento 2 extension tutorial that describes both frontend and backend functionality of the Magestore Dropship Magento 2 Extension.

On a newly appeared screen, choose the “Request Dropship” shipping channel and hit the “Add Products to Request” button.
Now, tick products. Note that you can select as many items as you want to be drop shipped. It is also possible to set custom quantity and change suppliers. Hit the “Add Selected Product(s) to Request” button.

Hit the “Edit” button and you will be transferred to the following screen:
Each “Dropship Request Edit” Page is divided into 5 sections: Customer Information; Shipping Address; Supplier Information; Status; and Create Dropship Shipment. While the first 4 blocks provide various data and a link to a supplier page, the last section allows you to edit the dropship quantity, create a shipment, and cancel the request (Back to Prepare Fulfil). Adjust Qty Dropship and hit the “Create Shipment” button.
The shipments tab will no longer be empty. Here, you can view shipment details (from the “Action” column). As for mass actions, you can PDF shipments here.
A shipment view screen is divided into several sections. First of all, it is Order & Account Information where you can view a corresponding order and a customer page.

In Items Shipped, you can view a supplier, a product name and SKU, as well as shipped quantity.
