Incorrect item price syncing on Shopify through Shopify api

50 1 8

Hello Shopify 

We are integrating Shopify with Shopify REST Apis. 

When we are synchronizing the products price with 3 decimal places then Incorrect item price is synchronized on Shopify. While its working fine with 1 and 2 decimal places price? 

We are using following API

Hello @Webgility1 ,

This would be an expected outcome when syncing products to a shop that is configured to use a currency that maxes out at 2 decimal places. If you attempt to sync an item to a shop with an incompatible currency, it will automatically be rounded during import. Only a few currencies are capable of accepting 3 decimal places.

I would check to see what currency the affected shop is using (via settings>general), and reference it against the list available HERE to see the maximum allowable decimals.

Hi ,

The solution which you provided does not relates to our question. Our issue is not of rounding of decimals. Real problem is that incorrect price is syncing.

In request : we are sending ->  "price": "16.843"

In response : we are getting ->  "price": "16843.00"

It is removing decimals. And this is happening when we are sending more than 2 decimal places in price.
Even if its a currency issue then it should have rounded of till 2 decimal places and should have response as  "price": "16.84"(omitting 3rd digit)

But it works perfectly fine when we provide price with 2 decimal places as below

In request : we are sending ->  "price": "16.84"

In response : we are getting ->  "price": "16.84"

Please look into this issue.
