Real-time webhooks

The complete list of supported events for each resource

Commerce Layer provides a webhook mechanism to react to specific events in real-time.

Each time a subscribed event occurs, we trigger a POST request to the endpoint that you specified in the callback_url field. The request contains a JSON payload in the same format that you get when fetching the same resource through the REST API.

For each resource, you can also configure the related resources that should be included in the request body. The relationships will be set as the resource include query parameter.

If the triggered request doesn't get a 2xx response from the specified endpoint, the system tries to resend it for the next 24 hours, at set intervals (0s, 1m, 10m, 1h, 3h, 6h, 12h, 24h).

For security reasons, we recommend to verify the callback authenticity by signing the payload with the shared secret (SHA256 HMAC) and compare the result with the callback signature header X-CommerceLayer-Signature.
