Webhooks

If you are using our Shopify App, this section is irrelevant and you should follow Installing our Shopify App instead. See Purple Dot Overview for the comparison of our Shopify App vs. Platform integrations.

Overview

This reference documents available webhook subscriptions.
Webhooks allow you to stay in sync with Purple Dot store data or perform an action after a specific event occurs in a store.
Webhooks are a performant alternative to continuously polling for changes to a store's data.
You can configure webhook subscriptions on the Integration settings page of the Merchant Portal.
Note: Webhooks use the HTTP method POST to deliver requests to the provided webhook URL.

Webhooks

This webhook is triggered whenever
  • a new waitlist is created, or
  • stock levels on any existing waitlist are updated, or
  • shoppers make, change or cancel pre orders for a product on a live waitlist, or
  • a waitlist is paused
Expected latency is a few seconds from when the relevant event occurs in the store. Each webhook delivery is attempted up to 3 times.
