Order Processing with REST APIs Tutorial

Step 9. Create a shipment

To create a shipment, you need the order_item_id of each item to be shipped. Since the Sprite Yoga Companion Kit is a bundle item, you only need to include the top-level order_item_id (5). The order_item_id for the Radiant Tee-M-Orange is 3.

To create a partial shipment, specify only those order_item_ids that are to be shipped now.

If the call is successful on a full shipment, Magento changes the status of an order to Complete.

Endpoint

where 3 is the order id.

Headers
