How to create a webhook?

Webhooks are automatic messages sent from apps when previosly configured event takes place. They have a payload, which is sent to a unique URL. Unlike other API requests, webhooks are instant and require less work on your end.

In GetResponse webhooks let you send real-time data from GetResponse to any other platform you’re using.

How do I set up a webhook?

To set up webhooks:

  1. Go Webhooks.
  2. Click Create webhook.
  3. Pick the events to notify you of, and enter a Webhook name and a Webhook URL. This way, we’ll know when we need to notify you and where to send the data.

  4. Change the Webhook status to active and click Create webhook.

You can configure your webhooks to send information about the following events:

  • Link clicked – to get notified every time a subscriber clicks a link in an email
  • Message opened – to get notified every time a contact opens an email.
  • Contact subscribed – to get notified when a subscriber is added.
    Note: This event is not triggered by imports.
  • Contact copied – to get notified every time a contact is copied from one list to another.
  • Contact moved – to get notified every time a contact is moved from one list to another.
  • Contact unsubscribed – to get notified when a contact unsubscribes via unsubscribe link in an email.
  • SMS link clicked (available in GetResponse MAX only) – to get notified every time a contact clicks a link in a text message
