Why use webhooks?

Webhooks are a useful tool when building PaySG integrations, as they allow your e-services to receive events in real-time as they occur in your payment service.

To enable webhook events, you will need to register webhook endpoints. Once registered, PaySG can push real-time event data to your application's webhook endpoint whenever events happen in your PaySG account. PaySG uses HTTPS to send webhook events to your app as a JSON payload that includes an Event object.

Receiving webhook events is particularly useful for listening to asynchronous events. The current version of webhooks supports events for when a payer has paid.


To begin receiving webhook events in your application, you can create and register a webhook endpoint by following these steps:

  1. Identify the specific events that you want to monitor.

  2. Develop a webhook endpoint function that can receive event data POST requests on your e-service.

  3. Register your endpoint with the PaySG team. For now, this can be done by contacting the team and providing the following fields for them.

    • webhook_url the endpoint of your e-service that PaySG should send webhooks to.

    • description optional field for you to describe the webhook.

    • subscribed_events list of subscribed events from PaySG that your e-service would like to subscribe to.

  4. Ensure that your webhook endpoint is secure to prevent unauthorized access.
