WooCommerce and Webhooks

The webhook system of WooCommerce, which is present since a few versions ago, got a good web interface to manage creation and interaction with hooks. For whom do not know what webhooks mean, we can summarize like:


It is a mechanism that you can monitor notification of systems, by using an API, usually allowing to register an URL which runs a program to interpret the received notifications.


With this system, it is possible to monitor events ocurred on WooCommerce. For example, we can monitor new orders and send alerts for sales team to get in touch (it was only a simple example, there is many actions available to monitor).

    Hi Felipe
    How do I get a webhook to notify the admin with a new action in Woocommerce or even better Woocommerce subscription in a wordpress site.
    Thank you so much

    Incredibly, I can’t find information about a webhook for “Paymend concluded”. Not product creation, not other fancy stuff.
    Any idea how that could be done?
    I would need to call an API only when the Payment (Braintree) went through.
