Ingram Micro offers webhooks as a method to notify your apps and customers with real-time order status information:

  • Webhooks allow you to configure automatic notifications to your app when there is a change in order status and pushes notifications as HTTP posts to your pre-defined destination URL.
  • Webhooks are simpler than API solutions — there is no need for your app to send traditional API requests to obtain information.
