webhook

Warning! Webhook will be called only once and in case of failure it's not triggered again, due to that case merchants can also use /v2/auth/r/ext/pay/invoices endpoint to query the invoice states.

📘

invoices: { ext: ... }

Ext field contains additional data related to payment. In case of lighting network (LNX) payment it should look like this: { "hash": string, "payment_request": string, "node_pub": string }.

📘

invoices: { poolCurrency: ... }

Pool currency represents the underlying blockchain used by payable currency, e.g. in case of UST-ETH which is an ERC-20 token poolCurrency is ETH.

📘

flags

Invoice might have flags that are automatically added depending on data. Currently supported flags are:

  • ip:prohibited - added when customer's ip belongs to a prohibited jurisdiction

Ratelimit: 90 req/min
