For example, there was an order made on Nov 1st. But edited on Nov 4th. The two additional items added to the order for a total of 100 dollars. But these additional items only show up in the Nov 1st section of the order (in the total amount). This causes the additional revenue to show up on Nov 1st instead of Nov 4th.
As of right now, the Shopify order API has no distinguishable information in the order that these items were added on November 4th. Typically there is a date attached to it - but not in this case. At least a date is attached for refund line items of edited orders. But since there are not we are not able to distinguish when those items were added.
