Development discussions around Shopify APIs
Hello there 👋
We are keen to use the manual sort order in Shopify collections, and tried to grab the order of products when a product is reordered inside of a manual collection.
However it seems that reordering products doesn't trigger the collections/update webhook.
Is this a bug or indeed intended behaviour?
Appreciate any information.
Thank you, Zoran.
That's a good question! It is the intended behaviour: collections/update webhooks are not triggered when the products are manually re-ordered but rather when the collection is modified: like changing the sort order (newest, oldest, title, etc) or anything related to the collection itself.

Thanks for the swift reply.
Couple of follow up questions:
1. Is there any plan to make reordering a product a feature and trigger the webhook in the future?
2. What is a recommendation to get the order of products frequently on your end?
With number 2, polling will most likely get mentioned in which case:
3. How can polling be efficient/quick if we are dealing with large enterprise client on Plus with 500+ collections and 10k plus products?
