Payment Success Webhook Version 1

The new Payment Success Webhook notifies you about the payment, and it gives you comprehensive information about successful payments. Write to [email protected], to configure this webhook.

A notification is sent to your backend from Cashfree when payments are successful. These notifications are useful in cases when the internet connection is unstable or slow while the payment is being processed. This will allow you to reconcile all the successful orders at your end. Notifications will be sent to notifyUrl which is a part of the request parameter specified while creating an order request.

User Dropped Webhook

The User Dropped Webhook notifies you when customers drop out of the payment flow without completing the transaction. It will help you understand if customers attempted to pay or not.

Some common scenarios where the transaction will be marked as USER_DROPPED are:

  • Android UPI Intent Payments - when a user clicks on the back button in the UPI app without making any payment attempt.
  • Card Payments - when a user drops out of the payment flow by closing the OTP verification page.
  • UPI Collect Transactions - when a user does not enter the UPI PIN and closes the transaction screen

Signature Verification

The signature must be used to verify if the request has not been tampered with. To verify the signature at your end, you will need your Cashfree PG secret key along with the payload.

timestamp is present in the header x-webhook-timestamp
Actual signature is present in the header x-webhook-signature

timestamp := 1617695238078; 
signedPayload := $timestamp.$payload;
expectedSignature := Base64Encode(HMACSHA256($signedPayload, $merchantSecretKey));
