Webhook orders/updated arrives before or after orders/create webhook within a second.

I have created a new store with Dawn theme. My app is a standard Shopify/Remix app hosted in Fly.io.


When I make a purchase - create an order in my new store -  'orders/updated' webhook arrives before or after 'orders/create' webhook within milliseconds from each other.

The store is new, no customization that would update the order automatically.

Hi Sergiy,


Ordering of webhooks isn't guaranteed between different topics for the same resource. For example, it's possible that a products/update webhook might be delivered before a products/create webhook (see this limitation in our docs).

Hi Liam,


yes, I am aware of that, there are many posts even in this forum about the order of incoming webhooks.


My question was about the fact that  'orders/updated' webhooks come even if orders were not updated - only created. As a matter of fact, I even removed the processing of  'orders/create' webhooks in my app at all, and left the 'orders/updated' and everything works fine: I create an order in my store, and my app processes it even without  'orders/create' webhooks.


Thanks, Sergiy.
