Webhooks for clicks

If you enable click-tracking, SMTPeter rewrites all hyperlinks in your emails. If someone clicks on one of these rewritten links that user first goes to the SMTPeter website, where the click is registered, and is then immediately redirected to the original URL. This all happens automatically and very fast
and is most of the time unnoticeable for your receiver. This technology allows SMTPeter to track all clicks on your mails.

If you set up a click Webhook, SMTPeter also notifies you in real-time about these clicks. For each click we send a HTTP/HTTPS POST call to your server with the relevant information about the click.

Variables

With each POST call the following variables are sent over:

Variable Description
id Unique identifier of the message that was clicked
type Type of action that triggered the Webhook ('click')
timestamp Timestamp for the bounce (in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format)
time Unix time for the bounce
recipient Email address of the user that clicked
ip IP address of the user that clicked
original The original url
useragent Optional user agent string (extracted from http request header)
referer Optional referer (extracted from http request header)
tags The tags that you associated with the mail

The 'id' and 'recipient' and 'tags' variables allow you to link the incoming clicks to the original outgoing message that was sent.
