Shopify webhook using google pubsub message ordering

5 0 3

Hi Guys,

I have a question. So Shopify allows us to subscribe webhooks to google pubsubs which is awesome however of course it is very important for messages to be processed in correct order. PubSub supports message ordering but it requires the publisher, in this case, Shopify to add an ordering key. So my question is: Does Shopify adds an ordering key when publishing the message?

Hi, any news on this? 
We encountered a problem with one payment method that changes the order financial status several times within a short period of time like paid -> paying -> paid etc. These webhooks arrive out of order so it is impossible to tell what is the actual latest status.
So, it would be really helpful to have an ordering key
