A webhook is a method to provide other applications with real-time information. Unlike other APIs there is no need to poll data to keep it up-to-date.
A webhook delivers data to other applications as it happens, meaning you get data immediately. This makes webhooks much more efficient for both provider and consumer.
For any event in the service, you can register a URL that will receive a notification every time an event occurs in your account.
When using the Checkout Form, the service can use Stripe Webhooks to receive notifications of payment and subscription events.
