Breaking Changes

We are in the process of cleaning up how product fulfillment statuses are handled in the API.

Previously, stocked_inhouse and automatic_dropshipping were set with the /product/<sku>/warehouse/<warehouse_id>/ enpdoint. However, fulfillments were never handled at the warehouse level and this caused some confusion. To add to this, if the particular product didn’t have a default supplier set then the product could not actually be updated to dropship or autodropship.

Going forward, we have created a new endpoint: PUT /product/<sku>/fulfillment/
In the body of this request you’ll provide fulfillment_type and default_supplier_id (optional).

The fulfillment_type param can be one of the following:

The default_supplier_id param can be the id of any supplier you wish to set as the default for that product. This element is optional if the product already has a default supplier. Also, any attempt to set fulfillment_type will fail if there is no default supplier and default_supplier_id is not included.

The new endpoint is only available if the account has the temp_new_product_fulfillment flag set. You can check flags by hitting the GET /company/flags/ endpoint. If temp_new_product_fulfillment is not returned or is false then you’ll want to continue using the /product/<sku>/warehouse/<warehouse_id>/ endpoint. Once the flag is set you cannot pass stocked_inhouse or automatic_dropshipping to the warehouse endpoint.
