Even being able to use an API, like ProductDyno's, you may encounter two issues when events happen on the platform:
- Services that do not (or cannot) make API requests, may still need to know the response of a request.
- Many events are not the result of an API request.
Webhooks solve these problems by letting you register a URL that we will notify anytime an event happens in your account.
This can be very useful if you need to notify a service or perform an action with a 3rd party application based on events that happen on ProductDyno.
Plus, using webhooks is very easy...especially when using it with Zapier to connect with hundreds of well-known applications all across the web. Just create a webhook (Product or Collection -> Integrations -> Webhooks) inside of your product or collection inside of ProductDyno, get the trigger notification URL from Zapier and paste it into ProductDyno.
