You can receive a notification every time a subscription plan is created or changes status by setting up alerts in the Portal. To receive notifications about subscription status changes, you can set up email alerts or web alerts (webhooks) for your account. This tutorial will walk you through the steps required to configure an email or web alert for subscription creation or status change events.
Create a new notification alert that notifies you when an update to a Merchant’s customer Subscription event occurs.
You must have a fully boarded Payrix account to perform any of the actions described in the use case guides.
Tip: By default, all custom email and web alerts are disabled. The Platform provides a set of default email alerts when a Merchant is boarded to cover critical notifications. To learn more about boarding alerts, see the Enable Merchant Boarding Alerts use case.
