Drop Ship: Do I have to Uncheck The "Maintain Stock" Option?

Dear ERPNext Team,

My company handles orders through drop shipment, which means we don’t maintain any stock ourselves. However, when adding a new item and selecting “drop ship”, the option “Maintain Stock” under “Stock Levels” stays checked by default.

Do I need to uncheck “Maintain Stock”, or does this option still serves some accounting purpose during the drop shipment sales cycle?

Best regards,


No. Drop Ship item can be stock item as well.
