How do I set up Webhooks with Plasso?

3 minute read
Setting up webhooks in Plasso is easy. Plasso’s webhooks allow you to send your customer’s data when they signup / buy something to the location of your choosing. You can add a webhook URL by:
  1. Going to your Storefront Space Setup page inside Plasso
  2. Under the Webhooks section, add in the URL that you want to receive webhooks at
  3. Click Save and that’s it. ✅

If you are looking to test the webhooks first to see what data is returned, you can use Webhook.site. If you’re wanting to send Webhook data to Zapier, you can do that too!

Retries

If your server returns anything other than a 200 level status response, the webhook will not be delivered. When this happens Plasso will try to send the webhook again at timed intervals. There are a few extra params on the webhook when the webhook is a retry. Those are:

  • retries: Number of times Plasso has attempted to send this webhook.
  • firstAttemptAt: The time of the first attempt.
  • previousAttemptAt: The time of the attempt prior to the current attempt.
  • previousServerStatus: The server status code Plasso received from your server on the last attempt.
Security

If you’d like to ensure webhooks are being sent from Plasso, and not being faked by someone else, you can make use of the signature param on the webhook object. The signature is a sha256 hash of your Plasso Live Secret API Key and the createdAt time of the webhook. The signature has the createdAt time in the string itself. It comes after the period ( . ) in the signature string.
You can use those two strings to create your own sha256 hash and compare them ensure they match. If they match, and you’ve kept your Plasso Live Secret API Key safe, then you can be reasonably sure Plasso is the one that sent the webhook.
Remember: Never expose your Plasso Live Secret API Key publicly.
