Platform Release 17 April 2019

Stores beta let you model the context your customers shop in, e.g. physical retail locations, brand stores, or country-specific stores. Currently, a store holds carts and orders. During the Beta phase, we plan to let the store define what subset of resources within a project is available in the context of the store. For example, which products are sold at what price, and which currency or shipping methods can be used.

Additionally, a store can be used for permissions. With an OAuth scope like manage_orders:acme-inc:luxury-brand, an API client can only work with carts and orders inside the luxury-brand store, but not within the budget-brand store. See the GraphQL section for more details. Coming soon to the Merchant Center, a team can be given permission to only work with orders from one store.
