Synchronous events refer to events or actions that are executed immediately within the same request/response cycle of the application. These events are typically triggered as part of the execution of a specific operation or workflow and are processed synchronously before the response is returned to the client.


Using webhooks for synchronous events will affect Saleor API response time. If used extensively, it can cause a significant performance impact on response times! Make sure that the App server can keep up with customers' requests.

These webhooks are run from the Saleor Core instance during GraphQL requests. As a result, the response data is sent to the client.

Examples of the use cases

  • payment events -> payment processing
  • shipment events -> shipping calculation
  • tax events -> tax calculation
  • transaction events


Managing webhooks is available for users with the MANAGE_APPS permission. The App can also create and modify its own webhooks without the need for additional permissions.

Webhook protocol

Synchronous webhooks support only HTTP(S).

Webhook payloads are sent in POST requests with the application/json body and expect the response of the same content type.

Available Webhook events

The Synchronous can be grouped into the following categories:
