    • barcode can't be empty
    • barcode is in a recognized format such as UPC
    • barcode field matches the barcode on the physical product
    • variant inventory is set to be managed by SFN
    • all inventory for the order is available
  • the shipping address on the order is valid
  • the order is unfulfilled
  • the order is marked as paid, or, if the order comes through Google or Facebook and Instagram by Meta, then the payment is authorized
