How to view the raw JSON data of a Shopify order
The order JSON is the plain text version of a Shopify order. It allows you to view data that's not easily visible when looking at an order via the Shopify Admin.
If you want to create Order Tagger workflows to tag orders when certain data attributes or values are present or not present, then you may need to look at the raw JSON data of an order to configure the workflow criteria.
This short video will show you how to view the raw JSON data of a Shopify order:
