[Oops. I think I posted in the wrong discussion board. Can someone move it to the right one?]

 

Hi .. I'm facing an issue with my nodejs app .. I do all my process sequentially , i.e. one API call after another and nothing in parallel .. my app only deals with orders, fulfillments and metafields .. Below is the header I get after 10-15 calls in sequence .. As you can see, there is no retry-after header here

What's the contents of the response vs just the headers? That might give you some more clues.

 

Take a look at the docs for fulfilment:
https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/shipping-and-fulfillment/fulfillment#create-2019-04

 

There's a note there:

If you are using this endpoint with a Partner development store or a trial store, then you can create no more than 5 new fulfillments per minute.

 

Is this a dev/trial shop? Is so, the note is relevant.
