But first, let’s take a look at how you can use our webhook feature to streamline and optimize your email communications.

What is a webhook?

Webhooks are a mechanism that let web services talk to each other by making HTTP requests to update data, notify services, or trigger actions. Webhooks exist as effects in Talon.One to let us communicate with an outside service when certain rule criteria is validated (e.g., a customer registers for an account).

Webhooks can easily be configured in the Developers section of your account. Once you have created the webhook, simply create a campaign with a webhook effect in the rules.

How to Implement a Webhook

In the Talon.One Developer Tools, developers can create webhooks to other web applications and test the implementation.

Simply follow our Webhook Guide and complete the following steps:

  • Step 1: Get account information from email service provider
  • Step 2: Create the Webhook in Talon.One
  • Step 3: Add the email effect to a campaign rule and test it
