Magento 2 How to create order using GraphQL

In this article, we will show you how to create order using GraphQL. The placeOrder mutation converts the cart into an order and returns an Order ID. We cannot manage orders with GraphQL, because orders are part of the backend. You can use REST or SOAP calls to manage orders to their completion.

The following actions are perform before using placeOrder mutation:

  1. Create an empty cart
  2. Add one or more products to the cart
  3. Set the billing address
  4. Set the shipping address
  5. Set the shipping method
  6. Set the payment method
  7. For guest customers, assign an email to the cart (use setGuestEmailOnCart)


mutation {
    input: PlaceOrderInput
  ) {

The following example for create order.


mutation { placeOrder( input: { cart_id: "tfwJXU8gMmjjXqcKyINO3ydMSsRd5Ogy" } ) { order { order_number } } }


{ "data": { "placeOrder": { "order": { "order_number": "000000004" } } } }

That's it!!
