Does importing orders to Shopify via API deviate from the platform guidelines?

I have an app that imports orders from a payment platform into Shopify. I saw that when importing like this, Shopify is unable to charge the 2% tax per order.


Doing imports in this way, am I running away from the platform guidelines? Can I suffer blockages for that?

Hey @edywladson,


I encourage you to read our [API terms]( and [Partner Program Agreement]( to determine whether your app is adhering to platform guidelines.


Shopify designed the Order API to allow apps to import orders into a Shopify store. You can definitely use this API for it's intended purpose, as long as your use-case complies with the terms.
