      Creating an order is something similar as Adding Products. You can use POST API request with order parameters to create an order.

      Product must exist in Bigcommerce, than only you can create an order. Please check official documentation for exact API Request Parameter. https://developer.bigcommerce.com/api/v2/#create-an-order

      If you need my paid service, please let me know. Will create an API call for you.


  5. i want to add order in my store like user give order can you help me on this topic..?

  6. issue is “400The field ‘products’ is invalid.” so how i pass products in api call

    • If you are adding products first than follow above mentioned post. After adding you will get product ID, which you can pass along with create new order API request parameters.

      And if products already exist in store, than also get that product ID and pass in order API request.
