Webhook plugin is a perfect tool to optimize your store. The main purpose of the Webhook Plugin is to update events regularly and then continue to send a notification to the selected URL. It will save your resources and avoid pooling your API.
A webhook (also called a web callback or HTTP push API) is a way for GrandNode to provide other applications with real-time information. A webhook delivers data to other applications as it happens, meaning you get data immediately, for example in CRM, ERP, or any kind of third party. Unlike typical APIs where you would need to poll for data very frequently in order to get it real-time. This makes webhooks much more efficient for both providers and consumers. With the Webhook plugin, you will be able to send a new order to your ERP system immediately, without the need to trigger the API once a minute, or once an hour.
The biggest advantages of webhooks:
- Update an event in a short time
- Significantly helps to synchronize data across several web applications
- Possibility to send lead data to your ERP or CRM
Currently supported events:
Possibility to select which webhooks will be sent to a specified subscriber.
