    Looking at sites I’ve had running for a while, I now see a recommendation to add a webhook to stripe.

    My question though is I have multiple sites pointed at my Stripe account. Will the integration with Stripe know which webhook to call? I’ll have 6 of them in there.

    Also, it seems like this is not necessary? My site has worked almost perfectly without it so far.

    Final question, we are developing a new version of our software, and are developing on non-internet available machines. Without some intervention our site URL’s won’t be reachable from Stripe via a webhook. Do we set it up anyway [since we will now have it that way in production; see my earlier comment], or leave it blank, or do we now have to rig up some sort of tunnel so Stripe can call back to our development environments.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Hi @bretweinraub99,

    Stripe should be fine – it should just record which site did the transaction.

    Also, it seems like this is not necessary? My site has worked almost perfectly without it so far.

    It should not affect it, though if it does you can let us know.

    Without being connected to the internet, Stripe will not be able to ‘see’ the transactions coming through. It would require some means to connect to the internet to pass that information along. You may be able to customize Stripe but that is something we cannot assist with.

    Very useful.

    Without webhooks, checkout works without publicly accessible DNS. Is that a facet of the non-webhook model, or is it because I’m in test mode?

    Thanks!

    Hi @bretweinraub99,

    This would be due to test mode. Normally Stripe would require an internet connection and an SSL certificate on the sites to be able to run successfully in Live mode.

    That makes perfect sense.
