Currently available, the Localization Extensions developer preview allows partners and app developers to access the tax id collected during checkout and use this information to augment shipping apps (to expedite customs clearance) and invoicing apps (to issue gov. invoices).

 

As of the 2020-07 release candidate, orders made through checkout in countries that require a tax id for customs clearance or government invoicing will have this information available through the GraphQL API.

 

You can try these changes using a development store with the 'Localization Extensions' developer preview enabled.

 

For more information on how to apply tax IDs on checkout and view them through the GraphQL API, refer to our tutorial.

Hi there, thanks for the improvement.

Would you have any information on how to use that through the REST API? Couldn't find it in the current documentation.

Thanks

Hi Wiretrackio,

Currently, we don't support REST.

Okay, so @Jason_Tigas says:

"As of the 2020-07 release candidate, orders made through checkout in countries that require a tax id for customs clearance or government invoicing will have this information available through the REST and GraphQL API.

So from what I understand this is a misunderstanding and there is no such field in the REST API, right? Could you please point developers to where is this field available using the GraphQL API?

Thanks.

Hi @wiretrackio , you are indeed correct. Apologies for that misprint and thanks for pointing out the error. 

The post has been updated.

Hi there,

Are there any plans to get this to REST API so that webhooks are supported?

We have quite a few merchants looking for these localization extensions and currently the only way is to get a manual Graphl QL query (  https://shopify.dev/tutorials/get-a-country-field-using-localization-extensions ) without any update webhooks.

It would be a great addition and would make the reporting and compliance much easier.

Hi @KBetterReports ,

It's on our radar and we're working on getting something out.

It is great to hear that it is on the roadmap. Any timeline or expected release?
