Why is Shopify deprecating some endpoints on the Fulfillment API?
While using Fulfillment and Order resources to fulfill orders was once considered standard, this legacy behavior is no longer compatible with modern workflows. This holds apps back from a better, more accurate, way to fulfill and manage orders and makes it difficult for merchants to have visibility and control over their inventory and fulfillment. Fulfillment Orders API helps apps model the entire fulfillment process more accurately into its sub-pieces and unlocks access to new features like local delivery & pickup, fulfillment holds, subscriptions and more.
How do I move to Fulfillment Orders?
To help you seamlessly migrate, we’ve crafted a migration guide that walks you through the process of moving to Fulfillment Orders. If you’re wondering what it might look like once updated, take a look at our sample application detailing how fulfillment and order management is done before and after Fulfillment Orders.
We are committed to helping partners through this process, so if you have additional questions, you can visit our Fulfillment API Deprecation community forum where we will be answering questions from our developer community.
