Webhooks are a method mailfloss uses to send information to other apps quickly when something happens inside of mailfloss. They have a message, or payload, and are sent to a unique URL that you provide. Webhooks, in general, are almost always faster than polling, and require less work on your end.
Webhooks are in beta
Webhooks are a new feature to mailfloss. And like all of our new features, we label them as beta. Webhooks are currently in beta and under active development. While we'll make every effort to maintain consistency, updates may contain breaking changes.
Webhooks allow you to send an HTTP POST to the URL(s) of your choosing anytime certain events occur in your mailfloss account. All of our webhook events contain payloads serialized as JSON.
Webhooks can be managed inside the mailfloss app. On the webhooks page, you'll be able to create, edit, and remove webhooks.
Each webhook requires a name, at least one trigger event to subscribe to, a URL to POST to, and a data source.
Webhooks are available to our Business and Pro subscribers, and available as an add-on to our Lite subscribers. Webhooks are not available to non-subscribers.
Webhooks are not guaranteed to be published. They are sent on a best effort basis. You should not rely on the order in which webhook messages are published. Some payloads may come quickly and in bursts due to the nature of email verification. Ensure your webhook URL can handle the load.
