Unable to create a webhook

3 0 0

Hi there,

I am trying to subscribe to receive orders/created requests but for some reason I keep getting the same error: 


    "errors": "You do not have permission to create webhooks with orders/create topic"



Even though the error is straightforward I don't understand what I am missing because when I created my access token it shows that I have write_orders scope and that should allow me to create webhooks, right ? 



This is the request I am sending to create the webhook:



    "webhook": {
        "topic": "orders/create",
        "address": "myaddress",
        "format": "json",
        "fields": [

Can anyone help me understand why I am getting that error ?

Spent the entire day looking for what this issue could be and apparently Shopify's team need the request id to investigate so here is one of them: X-Request-IDa22d4a27-52d7-4278-b623-eb4830e3b7c7
