Order Processing with REST APIs Tutorial

Before you begin

This tutorial shows a system integrator how REST APIs are used in the lifecycle of an order, including configuring a store and creating a customer; creating quotes, orders, invoices, and shipments; preparing for checkout; and more order-related tasks.

The 10-step tutorial generally takes 30 minutes.

Complete these prerequisites

  • Install a Magento 2.1.3 (or later) instance with sample data. You can use the the Magento DevBox Beta to quickly install a Magento development system.

The sample data defines a functional store, called Luma, that sells fitness clothing and accessories. The store does not provide any sandbox accounts for testing credit card payments, so transactions will be simulated using an offline payment method.
