Remove limit of orders for dev shop

Hello,I'm currently writing an integration app that automatically creates orders in the shopify admin.However, I noticed that theres a limit to the number of orders I can create in my dev shop for testing. (ie. "You have 8 orders left in your trial account.")Is there a way to disable this somehow?

server internal error

HiI have developed an API  in PHP to upload our orders from a system outside of Shopify to eventually fully migrate and start using Shopify 100% in the future. The API was creating orders successfully and when an error showed up, it was very specific. Example:{errors:{billing_address:"Zip code is invalid"}} However, now every time I am trying to send a JSON API call, the server r...

One click payments

Hi,I’m working on a store that sells one product from a dedicated website.We’re finding that a percentage of orders are being lost as the process from clicking ‘purchase’ is too long.Is there any way to work to a one-click payment system using Shopify?The ideal would be how Stripe does it - user clicks “Buy Now” and a pop-up appears on the page telling the pr...

What is the exact nature of API call limits?

Still trying to get my custom developed product and customer integration apps to play nicely. Long story short is I have three Shopify stores. Each of them has roughly 1,700 products with at least one product variant associated with it. Each store has around 15,000 customers. I am looking to refresh product counts, prices, etc. and update customer records on a regular, automated basis.So from w...

Log-in via external account (not social network)

I am evaluating using Shopify for a client's commerce website. One of the requirements is that customers be able to log in to the website using the account they have created for the client's other mobile application. Customers would then be able to get product recommendations based on data available from this other application. I realize that much of this would need to be built custom, ...

Product Modify Ignoring Images??

With the new product_image stuff, does passing the array of image data in the product/modify call no longer work? Here is the JSON I'm passing. Note the "images" element. The variant data is updating properly, but the images data is being ignored. Is this just a problem with multi-variant products maybe??Array ( [title] => Single Sleeve Set [handle] => single-sleeve-set [bod...

Unique Identifier for App Event History Export

Would it be possible to get a unique shop identifier added to the App Event History export available from the Shopify Partner account?  Currently there is really only shop name and shop email, and both of those can lead to false positives if you're trying to match to the shop event history to another source.  Having either shop id or myshopify domain would be awesome.Thanks!

How to test app as if I were store owner

I have set up my app and my test store. The API calls all appear to work. Is there any way to view my app on the site as if this were a real situation, so I can test it?

Undocumented change to API?

We are an integrator who syncs data for other shops to and from their POS system.In the past hour, we've noticed that some shops are receiving responses that vary from what is in the API documentation.  The most alarming is that when we create a new variant by posting:{"variant":{... (variant json)In the past, we'd receive a similar response back that matches the api docu...

How can I perform payment transactions through the API?

Hi,I would like to know if I create an Order through the Shopify API, and then create a Transaction through the API specifying the Order ID, will a payment actually be processed through the gateway configured for the shop? I did some testing with the APIs, and it looks to me as if creating a transaction doesn't actually perform the transaction, but only records the transaction as havin...

What's the best way to store images that are not product images?

I need a way to store images for products that won't show up as "Product Images". Is there any way to store "Meta Images"? I was thinking maybe storing them as assets would work, but they are not specific to a theme. Is there some way to do global assets or something like that?

Mimic unlimited variants, or product add-ons that affect price

With the current features available in the API, If I wanted to have a product that allowed options that would affect price, I can only think of a couple really odd techniques that might work:"1. Tie my "options" to other products. For example, Product ID 12345 is the "standard" option and 12346 is the "extended" option, with different price.I was hoping I coul...
