Refund Error: cannot refund more items than were purchased

Shopify Partner
12 1 2

When testing "Refunds", we've trying editing an order on a Shopify store that has not been fulfilled yet. More specifically, we removed an existing line item, "restocked" the product, and updated the order. 


If I understood the Refund resource correctly (, through the order/edit, our app should be refunding the amount for that removed line item.


However, we receive the following error:

"errors": {
"refund_line_items.quantity": [
"cannot refund more items than were purchased"


I would greatly appreciate any help in the correct direction.
