Listen to incoming webhooks to get real-time updates on your account, which can be used to automatically trigger actions on your server-side.

Webhooks allow you to automate custom backend actions in response to the transitions that happen in a payment flow.

Why use webhooks

Let's say you received checkout.session.completed event which means the customer completed transaction on one checkout session, the Webhook event notifies your service if the checkout session payment is successful or not.

After webhook endpoint receives the checkout.session.completed event, you can trigger the action on the checkout session to notify user payment completed as well as ready to fullfil the order. In this way you no longer need to always refresh checkout session periodically to check the status update.

Event overview

When an event occurs, a Events object will be created, if you subscribed to the event, we send it to your endpoint as part of the POST request.
