Configuring Webhooks

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… You need to add an authentication for your endpoint.

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.)
