Introducing Webhooks!

Ami Wang

Automate Workflows with Webhooks

We're finally launching one of our most highly requested features! Webhooks are an easy way to get notifications on events happening asynchronously within Lob's architecture. Once set up, they help to automate workflows that you might currently be doing very manually. With webhooks, you can:

  • Send end users notifications automatically when their mail is processed for delivery
  • Receive notifications about erroneous scan events, such as Re-routed or Returned to Sender
  • Download PDF previews or thumbnails automatically as soon as they are rendered
  • Keep internal logs for reconciliation
  • And much more!

For a full list of all event types that are available for subscription, see here. For further technical details, please see our Integration Guide and our Documentation.


We can't wait to see what workflows you create. As always, please reach out to us with any comments, questions, or feedback!
