Earlier today we were receiving upwards of 500rpm that were webhook requests, coming from one store and I assume coming from one installed app making sweeping changes to variants. This effectively DOS'd our app, taking it offline for a period of time. This is frustrating, but I don't really have a good idea about how I can handle this. Has anyone ran into this problem? If so, what did you do ab...

I've also tried adding "pinterest" and similar values to the published_scope but that doesn't seem to help...

Why the API returns “/" in landing_site parameter?

I was expecting the landing page url (something like http://example.myshopify.com#id=1393) in landing_site parameter but When order is successfully placed I got '/' in ...

When I submit such an order I get errors indicating that line item requires Name, Title, and Price. Are the docs simply wrong or am I missing somet...

Returns Processed in Shopify > Vend

If an order is returned to us, and we process the return in Shopify, it doesn't sync with Vend, despite all of our inventory and sales doing so. I have contacted Vend, and they say you have to manually do it in Vend, Shopify doesnt sync the return data with Vend. Is there a way around this as it is duplicating work? Thanks in advance.
