There are some workarounds on this page. https://github.com/Shopify/shopify-node-api/issues/137#issuecomment-817139545

Syncing my time worked for me.

Would be nice to have some clockTolerance somewhere in the file.

As Teeto said it can be linked to clock sync. For instance on windows 11 the fix can be as simple as manually synchronizing time in the "time & language" settings.

Thanks. Syncing the clock fixed the issue. 


I had to stop syncing the clock a while back to do some testing in a different time zone. And after that I kept getting these stupid errors. 

None of my colleagues where getting them so it was very frustrating 🙂 


A bit hard to connect clock syncing with this error.

I was getting this error on my Shopify App in dev which had been working fine the last couple weeks.  Due to comment in this thread about time, I realized there a time change 2 days ago ( move clocks 1 hour back ).  So I restarted my macbook and that fixed the issue.
