checkouts/delete webhook

Hey all,

I'm building an app that's using the Checkout Webhook. https://help.shopify.com/api/reference/webhook

Capturing the create and update Checkout events hasn't been an issue, but I'm now trying to capture the delete event, and have been unable to trigger it from a store.

What are the conditions/user actions that cause the Checkout delete event to be triggered?

Thanks for any help,

Graham

Hey Graham,

Good question. At this moment, merchants don't have the ability to delete a checkout, but we're looking to open up that functionality in the not-so-distant future. As an app developer, it's a good thing to keep in mind, but to answer your question, there is no existing user action that would trigger a checkout/delete webhook.

If you have any questions or need further clarification, don't hesitate to let me know.

As an addition to Jordan's note, Shopify might occassionally delete checkouts that are older than one year old.

So does this mean that eventhough the API exposess such a functionality in a real scenario it doesn't exist? 

If so why is there such a webhook if it cannot actually be used?

Thanks in advance
