Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between API and webhook?
For most APIs, there is a request followed by a response. No request is required for a webhook, and it sends the data when it's available.
What is a webhook, and how does it work?
Webhooks, also called HTTP push APIs, enable apps to provide other applications with real-time information. They have a message (or payload) sent to a unique URL (the app's phone number or address). To use a webhook, you need to register a URL with the company providing the service. The URL is a location within your application that accepts data and works with it.
