Looks like your "shopify.ShopifyResource.get_site()" function is returning something that isn't a String, what is that function returning?

Hello there, as the question is still not marked as solved:


I also stumbled upon this problem while I was trying to bulk update my inventory. I think I have a simple solution to this.


For me, the code was executing properly when I made two different Shopify Shop instances for query and mutation.  However, at the very moment I tried to use the same instance for query and mutation, all of a sudden the same functions that were working well, started to show me this error.


So my suggestion is to make sure that you have at least two different instances of your Shopify shop and you are using one of them for query and another for mutation.


Let me know if it helps.

Thank you.
