Getting Shopify webhook to work with sanity but the function in the Netlify environment catches an error.

Hello! I'm trying to get a Shopify webhook to work with sanity, using a Netlify environment and a Gatsby frontend. This is from a Github repo from lucasvocos. So far everything is connected and everything deploys fine but when I use Shopify to either send a test request or update a product, the function in the Netlify environment catches an error. I'm pretty sure Netlify has all the permissions and variables it needs. Function and error posted below.
I believe the error comes from line #56 in the function: How can I debug this?

      .patch(, patch => patch.set(product))

The error looks to be coming from the promise after the client.commit() on line #61
