Testing Webhooks

  • Use a client like Insomnia to feed sample order JSON to your site's local webhook endpoint.
  • Use the testing/demo site to run automated tests and/or poke at webhooks in a safe environment. All email there is captured with Mailhog, which provides a web GUI for inspecting messages that would have gone out into the wild.

Health Check

You can optionally send a POST request to /actions/snipcart/test/check-health to verify that the Snipcart plugin is installed and capable of handling webhook requests. If all's well, the response will look like this:

  "status": "healthy"


Configure uptime tools like Pingdom, UptimeRobot and StatusCake to send a post check and verify a successful response.
