Hi guys, we are using a fullfilment service and they have specific elements that need to be sent to them using the Webhook. Is it possible to add these lines to the XML that is sent somehow in Shopify? I have added the specific lines below in Bold that I am talking about. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
SalesID - BLANK
CustomerAccount – C98989999
ContactPersonID – 1293847444
DeliveryMode - USPS
ShipperServiceID - REGULAR
PaymentMode - BLANK
And for sales lines:
LineNumber – sequential line number for order lines
ItemID – 834834828488229
PartnerRefData - BLANK
LineAmount – Quantity * SalesPrice
DeliveryDate – 1/1/1900 (because it is unnecessary)
What Chris is saying: direct the Shopify webhook to your own, intermediate script. This way your script would act like a proxy. Here you would take the output of the Shopify webhook and add the fields you need, then send it off to the fulfilment service yourself.
So like follows:
1) Something happens at Shopify 2) A Shopify webhook triggers 3) The webhooks sends its data to your scipt 4) Your script picks up the data from the webhook 5) Your script adds the fields to the XML/JSON 6) Your script sends the complete package to the fulfilment service 7) The fulfilment service parses your data
Hope this makes things a bit clearer.
Hi guys. Progress on this, but I had a query. We have built our script, and all seems to work however the XML only sends to our script from Shopify once we login to the order and push the 'All line items fulfilled' button. Does this seem correct?
Or if we are using a fulfilment service should the XML send straight away the order is placed and once we get confirmation back from the fulfilment company we then hit the 'All line items fulfilled button'?
If it is the latter, any ideas why our XML would only send once this is clicked?
Thanks. So what I was wondering was the XML is ONLY sending from Shopify once we press the 'All line items fulfilled' button. This seems incorrect to me? Shouldn't the XML be sent when the order is placed and once it's sent from the Fulfilment company, we THEN press the 'All line items fulfilled' button?
We are using a fulfilment service. My question is, an order is placed on the site. The XML from Shopify ONLY sends the XML using the Webhook once we press the 'All line items fulfilled' button. But I don't think this is correct?
I imagine an order is placed and the XML should send to the fulfilment agency, THEN we should push the button on the order right?
That makes no sense at all. That means you could get fraudulent orders and they automatically get fulfilled, costing you a bunch of money in lost product because you were automatically fulfilling orders.
Clicking fulfill sends the fulfillment request off to the Fulfillment Gateway, and then the gateway will reply/post with the fulfillment information for the order.
You can probably inspect the order and verify that it's been marked as fulfilled but it shouldn't have any fulfillments attached to it yet.
