Hello everyone, I want to change the line items of an order, and after hours of searching, I found several apps that could do that. However, I checked admin API, store API etc, all I found is that only notes/ address/ etc can be changed, but not line items (and not quantity/price). So I just wonder how did those apps can change shopify order? Is there anyway I can develop a private app so we can edit line items of orders? Thanks very much.

Line items on an Order can not be changed. You'd need to create a new Order.

Thanks for reply! Yup, thats what I got after studing through the API doc...

But what really bugs me is that some app are able to do that, such as:

https://apps.shopify.com/order-editor

https://apps.shopify.com/order-editor-by-lion-apps

So I am wondering is there some API not listed, or some API are restricted to normal app developer?? Thanks.
