Setting Up Webhook Endpoints to Be Notified of Specific Subscription

Subscribe Pro offers a feature called Webhook Endpoints that enables to you to provide Endpoint URLs that can be notified of the following, specific subscription customer activities. This feature is useful if you want to be notified of specific subscription customer activity at a particular URL.

  • Customer subscribed

  • Payment profile created
  • Payment profile updated
  • Payment profile redacted
  • Subscription created
  • Subscription updated
  • Subscription status change
  • Subscription cancelled
  • Subscription trial converted
  • Subscription email
