Webhooks

A webhook is a URL on your site that GoCoin can access to accomplish certain tasks. GoCoin uses it for:

  • Handling failed payment notifications

If webhooks are not configured properly or are blocked by a plugin or configuration of your site, the processes above will not function.

Note: this step is the number one cause of failure in the recurring billing process. The following steps are very important.

To set up webhooks in GoCoin go to https://gocoin.com/dashboard/ and log in. Once logged in, click on Integrations then Webhooks.

Enter the following URL in Webhook URL field :

http://example.com/?edd-listener=gocoin

Click Save Webhook Endpoint.

That’s it! You are now ready to start accepting Bitcoin via GoCoin!
