How do I mark an order as paid?

I can do it through the dashboard manually, but I’m looking for a way to do it with backend code.

I’ve already tried using the ‘wix-data’ API to update the order in the database, but it gives me a weird error message.

Here’s what I’ve tried so far:

const order = await  wixData.get(
  { suppressAuth: true }
console.log('ABOUT TO UPDATE', order);

order.paymentStatus = 'PAID';

const foo = await wixData.update(
  { suppressAuth: true }

console.log('UPDATE OK', foo); // This never gets printed.

which throws this error:

Unknown error. Request ID: 1611770320.93139175542964216103. Message: Request failed with status code 404.

I’m at a loss for how to accomplish this.

As stated in the Permissions section of Velo: Wix Stores “Orders” Collection Fields , the Stores/Orders collection cannot be modified.

So then what’s the procedure for doing this?
I just want to update the payment status in response to a webhook.

@yisrael-wix I see…

This is such a huge pitfall - I’m working on a site that has been built entirely around the Orders collection - which is locked and read only. This means I can’t manually update the fields of any of these rows. Is there a workaround for this?
