Yes, this is a much needed feature. I have been informing TG of this request for 12 months. Hopefully it will be a feature very soon. Currently, any kind of work-around is very, very cumbersome.

Hey Henri,

Thank you for the detailed and valuable feedback. While this is not currently on our short term roadmap, we will make sure to update you if there are any changes with regards to this functionality. Thank you.

Yes, without support for drop shipping, we will most likely cancel our subscription. We love the functionality of TG but it would be counter-intuitive to have to do different order types in two separate programs. If there is ever a beta or test group for this, we would love to be a part of it.
