Webhooks API is a type of API that allows an application to receive notifications from another application when specific events occur. It enables real-time communication between applications and eliminates the need for constantly checking for updates.
A webhook is a specific URL that is triggered when an event occurs. The application that triggers the event sends an HTTP request to the specified URL with information about the event, and the receiving application can then process this information and take appropriate action.
Webhooks are commonly used in scenarios such as payment processing, tracking events in a user’s workflow, or receiving notifications when a change is made to a resource. They can be used to integrate various applications, allowing them to communicate and exchange information in real time.
