Webhooks are used to notify your application of changes to the status of Agreements, Payment Requests, Credits, and Debits, etc as they are processed through the system.

By subscribing to our webhook events you can monitor the status of each transaction, and then trigger the appropriate next steps. While making Payments and Payment Requests, webhooks allow you to check the status of the transactions.

This article gives an overview of the webhook events you would expect to receive for the following scenarios.
