Configuring Webhooks/Notifications

This guide explains how you can create and manage webhooks, to receive notifications for your end-user's payments.

Register your Endpoint to get Notifications

You can register your endpoint which allows you to get notifications whenever your end-user makes a successful payment or declines/cancels payment. You can subscribe to a webhook to receive updates on your user's payments with the following endpoint.

Request Endpoint: reference

POST /webhooks

Request Body:

ParameterTypeRequiredDescription & Possible Values
urlstring โœ…This is your endpoint URL which can accept webhook requests with a POST method.
authenticationMethod.typestring โœ…

Authentication is to be set up by you. This will be used for you to authenticate the incoming calls from Venly. We allow two types:

  1. BASIC_AUTHENTICATION
  2. API_KEY
authenticationMethod.usernamestring(Required only when type is BASIC_AUTHENTICATION)This is the username for your endpoint. (A custom username that you enter)
authenticationMethod.passwordstring(Required only when type is BASIC_AUTHENTICATION)This is the password you enter for your endpoint.
authenticationMethod.headerNamestring(Required only when type is API_KEY)
This is the name of your api key. (A custom API header name that you enter)
authenticationMethod.apiKeystring(Required only when type is API_KEY)
This is the value of your API key for your endpoint. (A custom value that you enter for your endpoint.)
