Embed html on product pages

Hi All I'm trying to write an app that embeds some HTML on a store's product pages. I currently have this working by getting the shop admin to embed a tag in the product.liquid where they want the HTML: this loads some javascript that makes a CORS request to my backend that returns an HTML fragment to embed. But I'm wondering whether this is the best approach. I'd like the...

How do apps do more than the API suggests?

Hi guys, Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm a web developer who has worked with a few APIs and so on but new to Shopify. I've been looking at the API and it seems there are some limitations, such as not being able to add/edit gift cards or discounts. However you can install apps that can do such things (like discount manager or something). I'm wondering how they do that if...

Filtering APIs based on sub-fields

Is there any way to filter the Shopify API response based on sub-fields? For instance, from the Order API, we can get only the "Customer" information by passing "fields=customer" as parameter. However, is there any way to get only the customer's firstname? Something like "fields=customer.first_name"? Thanks.

Product API timeout with many images

Hi, I'm able to send products through the api fine, but when I send a product with 12 variants, and 50 images total, shopify seems to timeout and return an internal server error. The api docs says each product should be able to hold 200 images, so I should be under the limit... what gives? Thanks BT

Empty webhooks list even if webhooks work

When I register webhooks for product create and update, no error is returned and notifications work as expected. However, GET /admin/webhooks.json returns {"webhooks":[]} This used to work fine a month ago when I first tested it.

Changing the Shipping Address in Admin sends orders/updated notification...

I have registered webhooks for the orders/updated topic. When I edit the Shipping Address in Admin, everything works fine and I receive a webhook call with updated order data. However, if I edit Shipping Address in Admin again, no more webhook calls are sent by Shopify. Note that GETing /admin/orders/<id>.json returns updated data.

What deployment options are there for Apps?

I've been looking through the docs and there doesn't seem to be a clear answer on how to deploy an app. Do I have to bring my own hosting, (from the docs that's what it looks like),or is there a way to deploy a private app purely on Shopify, without involving any third-party servers?
