Store Name: Sole Priorities

App Name: SPISMS

 

We created a custom app called SPISMS to help manage inventory and sales in Shopify. The app uses the following endpoints in the order specified to upload variants.

 

Upload Variant

 

/products/$productID/variants.json

 

Set Variant Cost

 

/inventory_items/$inventory_item_id.json

Set Product Quantity Cost

 

 

inventory_levels/set.json

We noticed on multiple occasions that the 1st call to upload the variant uploads the wrong variant result the cost and quantity to be set on incorrect variants. Below are instances of incorrect uploads along with date and time of entry.

Can you look into why these variants were uploaded as the wrong size?

We did some additional investigation and noticed that this happens with variants without a SKU.
