Order API Address Validation Updates
Hey Shopify Developers,
There are some changes today to how addresses are validated when importing Orders through the Order API.
Shipping and billing addresses are now being validated to ensure the presence of the following fields:
- Customer last name (last_name)
- First address line (address1)
If the address validation fails, the order will still be created but the address import will fail silently – that is, the order will be created but the Order record in Shopify won't contain a shipping_address or billing_address (depending on which address failed validation).
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reply to this thread.
