How to Use "Allow Ship Later" Feature In Odoo 17 POS?

Odoo 17 Point of Sale (POS) incorporates an advanced functionality enabling the shipment of sold products at a later time and also allows the inclusion of a delivery date on the front-end. This feature proves beneficial in several scenarios, such as when it is necessary to procure additional inventory before shipping the product or when customers prefer to collect the item on a specific date in the future.

To use the ship later feature, make sure that the Allow Ship Later option from the Inventory Section is enabled in the configuration settings of the (POS) module.

Enabling the "Allow Ship Later" feature provides the option to designate a particular warehouse to pick up products. Moreover, when using the ship later feature, you can specify the product route for delivery.

Odoo offers two types of shipping policies: "As soon as possible" and "When all products are ready." With "As soon as possible," products are picked as soon as they become available, even if the order contains multiple items. On the other hand, with "When all products are ready," all products in the order are picked simultaneously.

After saving configurations, open the POS Shop Session and make an order.
