Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Over-the-Counter Sales work center.
  2. Select New Over-the-Counter Sale from the Common Tasks section.
  3. Click on View All.
  4. In the Name field for the account enter ABC (ABC represents the ID of the account).

The Payer and Bill-To parties are automatically determined as per the Determination of Involved Parties you maintained in Business Configuration, but the Ship-To party field remains empty.

You expected that the Ship-To party is also automatically determined by the system as maintained in your Business Configuration.


Over-The-Counter Sales function is different than the standard Sales Order process. It is the selling of goods to a customer in an Over-The-Counter Sales process with goods movement. The buyer obtains the goods in person and hence there is no Ship-To proposition.


This is the expected system behaviour.

In case you need a Ship-To party you can enter it manually or select it from the value selection.
