What are webhooks?

Webhooks are scripts that allow you to be notified when an event has occurred in the lifecycle of any of your customers. Using this information, you can do things like trigger emails, re-marketing, or other tactics to help further engage these customers. Implementing a Webhook on your OTT site (either through a script you’ve designed or a service such as Zapier), enables you to receive information when a customer:

Event Description Topic Name
Customer is created (mailing list signup) customer.created
Customer is added to a product (transaction involved) customer.product.created
Customer is updated customer.updated
Customer cancels their subscription customer.product.cancelled
Customer pauses their subscription customer.product.paused
Customer renews their subscription customer.product.renewed
Customer has a failed credit card charge customer.product.charge_failed
Customer's payment method has expired customer.product.expired
Customer has been disabled customer.product.disabled
Customer starts a free trial customer.product.free_trial_created
Customer is removed from a Product customer.product.deleted
