    "to set a drop" ergibt ganze 7 Treffer auf g* site:uk.

    Wieso sollte das eine gängige Redewendung sein?

    In welchem Satz- oder sonstigen Kontext-Zusammenhang ist das den aufgetaucht ?

    I don't know your actual context, but a "drop" is, for example, a delivery. Search, for example, for a "multi-drop delivery driver" for examples.

    I cannot envisage any circumstance in which #1 is correct.

    In which case it could mean making an appointment for a delivery (of food or a parcel).

    I think the phrase I would be most likely to use is "to arrange a drop", assuming this is about a delivery.

    10. Dead drop – A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items between two individuals by using a secret location and thus does not require them to meet directly.

The method stands in contrast to the live drop, so called because two persons meet to exchange items or information.

    The original post has so little context that it's hard to guess what is being referred to.

    Just for the record, a drop in the sense of an event or transaction between two parties is often associated with secret or illegal activity. So that would be my first association with a fragment like 'set (up) a drop.'

    The drop can be either the place to deposit something (drugs, weapons, stolen goods, secret information, etc.), or the thing deposited, or the act of depositing something for someone else to pick up.

    There are apparently now also related senses that take place solely online.

    Also for the record, I agree that #1 is likely to be completely wrong.
