Stripe can send webhook events that notify your application any time an event happens on your account. This is especially useful for events—like disputed charges and many recurring billing events—that are not triggered by a direct API request. This mechanism is also useful for services that are not directly responsible for making an API request, but still, need to know the response from that request.
Please add the webhook URL to your Stripe Account. You can find the webhook URL going to
Stripe Payments → Settings→ Webhook
Webhooks are configured in the Dashboard's Webhooks settings section. Click Add endpoint to reveal a form where you can add the webhook URL for receiving webhooks.
Stripe Payments trigger an event when a notification event is received from Stripe, some examples of what you can do with webhooks:
- Update a customer's membership record in your database when a subscription payment succeeds
- Email a customer when a subscription payment fails
- Log an accounting entry when a transfer is paid
Follow our docs to add the code to listen to the webhook event in a small custom plugin.
If you're using Stripe Elements and using the iDEAL payment method saving the webhook URL to your Stripe Account is required
