For example, you may want to retrieve the customer's name, email address, or shipping address associated with a particular checkout. However, it's important to note that there is a delay in retrieving this information. This is because Shopify needs some time to process and update its database with the latest information about the checkout. It can take up to 15 minutes for the data to be available via the API, which is what the Fetch Checkout Details action card uses to retrieve the information.
Fetch Collection Details: The Fetch Collection Details action card that allows you to retrieve information about products within a specific collection. This can be useful if you need to perform tasks that involve products within a specific category or group, such as updating prices or inventory levels. However, there is a limitation to this feature. The Fetch Collection Details action card only works for collections with a maximum of 250 products in the collection. If the collection has more than 250 products, the action card will not be able to retrieve all the products in the collection.
Wait For Event: You can add the Wait for event action card to define that a certain event needs to occur before the next step in the flow triggers. You can choose from the set of shopify events that you can wait for.
