Cannot edit orders for stores selling in multiple currencies

From the Edit Order FAQ

You might not be able to edit an order for the following reasons:

  • You don't have the Edit orders permission.

  • The order was placed in a different currency to your store's currency. If your store sells in multiple currencies, then you can edit only orders that are in your store's currency.

  • The order is more than 60 days old.

I am now using the Edit Order API but I'm having the same caveat in my app. I can't edit some orders in another currency. Is there any way to work around this limit?

no, we have tried it through the edit order api and it does not work when an order is placed in a different currency from your store currency.

There are so many landmines in this order edit API. Today, one of my app users is selling in multi-currency and the order edit stops working for the foreign orders. 

It becomes a mess for the merchants to update inventory manually. 

If there are some factors that cause it to stop working, it's simply not ready for production IMO. I hope that Shopify can follow up the issue. At least, giving developers a way out instead of a dead end.

@chrismark Did you set up another way to handle these multi-currencies orders?
