All things Shopify and commerce
Hi community - I'm new to shopify, looking for help:
Essentially, I want to have a 3rd party app update and delete my inventory instantly? Instantly meaning under 2 seconds. Is this possible?Thanks!
Yes possible, responsible .. no, consistently not always.
There is no service level agreement guarantee for api delivery.
That is why you will get inconsistent answers about response times and inconsistent data in testing.
"Instantly" doesn't last forever https://shopify.dev/docs/api/usage/rate-limits
Then there are factors such as server cache, processing queues, etc.
Shopify's own status https://www.shopifystatus.com
If this type of thing is mission critical seek a more expensive platform that provides a SLA.
Otherwise relax and just to build in remediation and fuzziness into your systems when you don't get "instant" service.
