  2. Under Common Tasks, choose New Third Party Delivery Notification.
  3. Create a Third-Party Delivery Notification with the required details.
  4. Now once it is created, navigate to the General tab
  5. Under the section: Ship to Party, check address details.
  6. Here change the country as required.
  7. Now check Third-Party Delivery Notification and make it consistent then release.
  8. Now Confirmed Inbound delivery and Outbound Delivery will be created.
  9. Perform undo Release of third-party delivery notification
  10. Remove the Ship-to party from third-party delivery notification and perform Save.
  11. Enter the Ship to party again for third-party delivery notification and now the original country for the ship to party will be populated again.
  12. Save the third-party delivery notification.
  13. Release the third-party delivery notification.


Since the relevant Outbound Delivery is already created with a different country in ship-to-party. Therefore, changing the country is not possible now.


You have to Cancel the existing Third-party Delivery Notification and create a new third-party delivery notification with the required ship-to-party.
