The purpose of this guide is to allow you to receive notifications when a user places an order on your Shopify store. Of course, other uses are possible, feel free to take liberties.
Add a Shopify WebHook
Shopify offers the possibility to create webhooks associated to your store. These webhooks transmit data to external services, it is through them that we will communicate with Hook.Notifier.
1. To the webhook management interface.
The interface is not the easiest to find, so we will guide you to it. Go to your store's administration interface and click on "Settings" at the bottom left of your window. Then find the "Notifications" tab and scroll down to "Webhooks".
2. Create a first webhook
It's time to add your first webhook. Click on "Create webhook". In the Event field, you will find all the events supported by Shopify. In our case we choose "Order payment".
We use the JSON format and the "Latest" version. Concerning the URL field, you have to insert your pre-composed url which contains your identifiers %_YOUR_IDENTIFIER_% and %_YOUR_KEY_%. Below, find our url pre-composer.
