A distribution method is how an order is fulfilled or delivered. For example, customer pickup, POS, We Deliver, UPS, Fedex, and USPS. This is how the customer receives the product.

 - All orders must have a distribution method.

 - The distribution method prints on quotes and sales & service quotes.

 - You can set up a default distribution method for each store using the Defaults tab on the Store screen (Administration > System > Stores > Open a store > Defaults tab > Default Distribution Method fields). 

 - Distribution methods are also used to automate stock site selection using Store Stock Site Relationships, including tracking inventory on service vehicles. The distribution method can be used to determine where inventory will be pulled from.
