Paddle Webhook Reference
Respond to Paddle billing and payment events in your platform
Our webhooks make it simple to receive data and events from Paddle, and for your systems to communicate data back.
- Fulfillment Webhooks – generated during order processing for one-time products.
- Alert Webhooks – triggered by events in the Paddle platform, for example a successful payment or a balance transfer to your bank account.
Alert webhooks are all sent to the same endpoint, defined in your Alert Settings. The fulfillment webhook endpoint is set individually for each product with webhook fulfillment enabled.
Subscribing to Alerts
Before you receive any events, you need to define the URL that we should send the HTTP POST requests to.
- Step 1: Click Developer Tools in the navigation in your Seller Dashboard.
- Step 2: Click on the Alerts / Webhooks item.
- Step 3: Enter a URL that we should send the HTTP POST requests to (or set an email if you wish to receive email notifications).
- Step 4: Check each alert that you wish to receive a notification for.
- Step 5: Click the “Save Changes” button to confirm your alerts.
For webhook events/ alerts, your server should respond with a HTTP 200 status code to indicate you have successfully received the message. If we receive anything other than a HTTP 200 we will retry the call to your webhook URL every hour for a maximum of 72 hours.
