Shopify Webhook - Identify A Different Client

- 1 answer

I would like to integrate my backend API with several shopify clients by using webhook created by shopify.

I read that webhook is a push notification triggered by shopify. If I give my server endpoint (receiving order/creating a new customer) to my several shopify clients, how will I identify a different notification?

Will there be a unique identifier(per client) in the notification sent by shopify? It's because if I receive an order notification, I need to identify this order notification with one of my clients in my db.

Please advise me about this use case.

Thanks.

Answer

Per the Shopify Webhook Documentation, each webhook from Shopify contains a JSON payload and HTTP headers that provide context.

The X-Shopify-Shop-Domain HTTP header includes the domain of the shop, e.g., johns-apparel.myshopify.com. You can use this to identify the shop.
