How does it work?
Webhooks are triggered by specific events. When specific events actually happen such as New Order, New Order Comment, New Customer, New Product; the webhook which is created before will collect the data, and sent it to the URL specified by you.
Webhook and great benefits
Let’s take an example picture of a doorbell system including a button near the door and a bell in the living room. When a visitor pushes the button, the doorbell ring and you notice that someone is at the door. This is the signal which is sent from the button to the doorbell.
Webhook works on the same concept. Webhooks are basically user-defined HTTP callbacks which are triggered by specific events. When a trigger event occurs in the source site, the webhook sees the events, collect the data and sends it to the URL in the form of an HTTP request.
