Stress Test Integration with Bulk sales insert

New Member

I am developing an integration with shopify that pulls sales and need to get a large amount of orders into shopify to pull from the API. I would like to do something in the 1000s. What is the best method to do this? I see they have a bogus payment gateway that can be used to manually process a sale. But is there an API for adding sales that can be leveraged?

Hey @YellowDogInv,

There isn't an API for generating sample data but you could check out this similar thread here: for a (deprecated) tool to generate N orders.

There's also the Order API where you can create an order one request at a time (you'd use "financial_status": "paid" or "partially paid").

You calling the Shopify CLI tool deprecated? Are you looking for a fistfight in the Shopify lunchroom? Tsk tsk. You should be encouraging your in-house developer tools, not FUD!
