The InventoryItem resource now indicates whether it requires shipping instead of the Product Variant

Effective February 12, 2019

Any app that reads requires_shipping off of the ProductVariant.

How do I prepare for this change?

Start consuming and reading checks for requires_shipping on the InventoryItem resource instead of the ProductVariant.

What happens if I do nothing?

Where can I learn more?
