I am trying to verify a Shopify webhook request for the topic orders/create, but the verification is returning False, I am not able to figure out the reason. Here's the code snippet I am using to verify the request.

  • views.py
class ShopifyWebhookOrderCreate(APIView):
    def post(self, request):
        verified = verify_webhook(request.body, request.META.get('HTTP_X_SHOPIFY_HMAC_SHA256'))
        if not verified:
            return Response(status=status.HTTP_401_UNAUTHORIZED)
        ...
        ...
        ...

and for verifying the request I am doing this:-

def verify_webhook(data, hmac_header):
    CLIENT_SECRET = config('SHOPIFY_CLIENT_SECRET')
    digest = hmac.new(CLIENT_SECRET.encode('utf-8'), data, digestmod=hashlib.sha256).digest()
    computed_hmac = base64.b64encode(digest)
    return hmac.compare_digest(computed_hmac, hmac_header.encode('utf-8'))

request.body format is b'{'the': 'data'}'

I verified the SECRET with the Shopify app.
