Here are two ways to test your integration.

  1. To test that your service responds to webhook notifications appropriately, you can send test webhooks by visiting the settings page, scrolling down to the Webhook subscriptions section, clicking on Details next to the relevant webhook, and clicking the Send test button.
  2. Additionally, we recommend making a small purchase from your store to ensure that the end-to-end integration is working correctly.
