[Oops. I think I posted in the wrong discussion board. Can someone move it to the right one?]

 

Hi .. I'm facing an issue with my nodejs app .. I do all my process sequentially , i.e. one API call after another and nothing in parallel .. my app only deals with orders, fulfillments and metafields .. Below is the header I get after 10-15 calls in sequence .. As you can see, there is no retry-after header here

Can someone explain what is happening here?

This is an accepted solution.

What's the contents of the response vs just the headers? That might give you some more clues.

 

Take a look at the docs for fulfilment:
https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/shipping-and-fulfillment/fulfillment#create-2019-04

 

There's a note there:

If you are using this endpoint with a Partner development store or a trial store, then you can create no more than 5 new fulfillments per minute.

 

Is this a dev/trial shop? Is so, the note is relevant.
