PHP REST post with Shopify API

I have a shopify store and would like to add approximately 200 orders using the Shopify API https://help.shopify.com/api/reference/order#create

I've never used PHP before but have put together the below script from previous questions and using the API example data and using a product from my store (variant_id).

Unfortunately this is not placing an order with my store, but does return data for the last order placed with the store, despite not making a GET request. Would you say this is happening because of a syntax error, or am I just structuring the PHP incorrectly? Thanks.



<?php

$api_key = 'api-key here';
$api_pass = 'api-password here';

$api_url = 'https://' . $api_key . ':' . $api_pass . '@croft-watches.myshopify.com';

$order_url = $api_url . '/admin/orders.json';

$data_array = array("order" => array(
"line_items" => array(
array(
"variant_id" => 10353765828,
"quantity" => 1
)
),
"customer" => array(
"first_name" => "Paul",
"last_name" => "Norman",
"email" => "paul.norman@example.com"
),
"billing_address" => array(
"first_name" => "John",
"last_name" => "Smith",
"address1" => "123 Fake Street",
"phone" => "555-555-5555",
"city" => "Fakecity",
"province" => "Ontario",
"country" => "Canada",
"zip" => "K2P 1L4"
),
"shipping_address" => array(
"first_name" => "Jane",
"last_name" => "Smith",
"address1" => "123 Fake Street",
"phone" => "777-777-7777",
"city" => "Fakecity",
"province" => "Ontario",
"country" => "Canada",
"zip" => "K2P 1L4"
),
"email" => "jane@example.com",
));

$json_data = json_encode($data_array);
var_dump($json_data);

$options = array(
'https' => array(
'header'=> "Content-Type: application/json\r\n" .
"Accept: application/json\r\n" .
"Content-Length: " . strlen($json_data) . "rn",
'method' => 'POST',
'content' => $json_data
)
);

$context = stream_context_create($options);
$result = file_get_contents($order_url, false, $context);

if ($result) {
echo $result;
} else {
echo "post failed";
}

?>




Answer

Here's an example using PHP and the cURL extension:

<?php
$ch = curl_init("https://key:pass@yourstore.myshopify.com/admin/orders.json");
$order = array('order' => array(
    'line_items' => array(
        array(
            'title' => 'Big Brown Bear Boots',
            'price' => '74.99',
            'grams' => '1300',
            'quantity' => 3,
        ),
        array(
            'title' => 'Clicky Keyboard',
            'price' => '150',
            'quantity' => 1,
        )
    )
));
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($order)); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Content-Type: application/json"));
$response = curl_exec($ch);
