Order created and paid

Hello,

We are getting data from REST API webhooks (orders/create, orders/paid), and the following question came up: At which point of time they both are fired? I see the same numbers of daily events for both of them, so can there be any cases when order was created but not paid?

Thank you!

Hi denn1z, there are a few cases where an order can be created and not be paid or the other way around. From a draft order you can “Mark as paid” which will create a paid order. A merchant can defer a payment, which allows them to create an order that is not paid. Merchants can also choose to manually capture payments, which will change when orders transition to paid: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/orders/get-paid
