Is it possible to modify the billing address of an existing order using the Admin API Order request (ie. https://help.shopify.com/api/reference/order#update)?

 

I have tried and am able to modify every other attribute of existing orders (including shipping address) but the billing address have never succeeded in modifying the billing address.  Is there an undocumented restriction in the API?

Order billing addresses are immutable once created, what's your use case for doing this?

Hi Alex, 

I know that this is an old thread, however, one reason for wanting to update the billing address of an existing (fulfilled and archived) order is to comply with GDPR requirements from the EU. 

Best, 

Jesper
