I'm guessing that you are presumably adding a mark-up to the cost of the 
(hey, all these order forms you have to fill in for your customers cost 
you time, right?). So I think the way I would approach this is to have a 

virtual "drop shipping" warehouse, and set the business rules so that 
goods "received" into it were immediately "issued" to the end-customer. 
would enable you to calculate your profit/loss on your drop shipping 
"warehouse" in the same way as for the other, physical, warehouses.

Of course, all of this is a bit theoretical at the moment, as we are not 

starting work on the Supply Chain (or any) package until the Application 

Server is a bit further along to support it...
