Introducing Webhooks – Stay Updated with Real-Time Notifications

How to set up webhooks?

You can set up your preferred webhooks directly in your dashboard in just a few mins. When you log in to your dash, navigate to the left-side menu and click on the For Developers tab. Here you’ll find all the available notifications, including:

  • 80% and 100% traffic usage alerts (for Pay-Per-GB users)
  • Failed payments
  • Failed auto top-up
  • Pre-billing alert
  • Blocked account alert
  • Trial start and expiration alerts
  • Failed auto-charge for Pay As You Go subscription
  • Successful auto-charge for Pay As You Go subscription
  • Successful cancellation of Pay As You Go subscription

Once you check the boxes for the alerts you want to receive, hit Save. And voilà – real-time notifications will pop up in your URL once the event occurs. You can change your preferences, turn the webhooks off or restore them to the default settings whenever you feel like it.

And in case you aren’t one of us yet – get started with our top-notch proxies or scraping solutions with a 14-day money-back option (terms apply)!
