I would like to import a whole bunch of orders into a shop as draft orders and then mark them as paid.  However, as these are existing orders, I would like to ensure the customers do not get sent a confirmation email.  How can I mark a draft order as paid without sending a confirmation email to the customer?

Hey @Tolulope_Akinol 

 

Does it need to be a draft order first? Here's an example importing an order without triggering a confirmation (third example):

It doesn't need to start as a draft order.  However, I would prefer not to use the API as there are about 80K orders.  Is there another option?

There might be some apps that can help - but they'll use the API under the hood.
