QuickBooks doesn't create a purchase order for a drop shipped item automatically. Unless, you automate a memorized purchase order.
You'll want to create the purchase order manually. With this, you'll be able to follow Rustler's suggestion in recording the drop shipped item.

I'd also recommend reaching out your accountant. They might have other ways of recording it that may suit your business setup.
When we have imported the suppliers'invoice (in mass) and the supplier's PO (in mass as well, what is the best way to consiliate supplier invoice and supplier PO please ? We are wondering if QBO is able to suggest conciliation for supplier from the PO number, and if yes, where in the supplier invoice can we add the PO number (of the supplier) ? Our customer is doing dropshipping and the conciliation for the payables is a nightmare as the supplier'PO is not conciliating automattically with the supplier invoice (we have already seen the left menu suggesting PO for a supplier chosen, but it is not efficient with the quantity of supplier PO our customer have in dropshipping. We thougth the best practice is (for the supplier process) | #PO → #delivery order (but no reception step with drop shipping )→ #invoice; we thought quickbook will be able to the tracability trough this process. What is your advise please ?
