Listening for Webhooks

To implement a listener for Stripe webhooks, start with the ExampleWebhookListener.cls class. This class isn't included in the 'src' directory to help avoid contributors' own webhook implementations from unintentionally gettting committed to this public repo or from being overwritten when they pull in the latest code.

Note that not ALL Stripe webhooks are currently supported. However, support for additional webhooks can easily be added to the StripeWebhookListener class. If you make changes to it, please also include the corresponding updates to this webhook implementation class.


There is often an "indexing delay" after inserting (or updating) records in Salesforce. If your Webhook implementation relies on finding existing records to complete its task (i.e. searching for the account that corresponds to a new Stripe customer), you may find the WebhookDelayedProcessor job useful.

In the example below, after searching for a 'license', we're unable to find one. We check to ensure that delayed processing is allowed (an implementation choice), and we create a Stripe_Webhook__c record with the webhook details. A scheduled job will then re-run the appropriate webhook handler up to 3 times, waiting 5 minutes beteween attempts -- adequate time for Salesforce indexing to catch up.

public void handle_ChargeSucceeded(StripeCharge charge, Boolean allowDelayedProcessing) {
		if (license == null) {
			if (allowDelayedProcessing) {
				System.debug(System.LoggingLevel.INFO, '\n**** License Not Found; Delay Webhook Processing'); 
				Stripe_Webhook__c webhook = new Stripe_Webhook__c(
					Webhook_Type__c = 'charge.succeeded',
					Webhook_Data__c = JSON.serializePretty(charge)
				insert webhook;
			throw new WebhookDelayedProcessor.WebhookDelayedProcessorException();

Note that delayed processing is currently only implemented for the charge.succeeded webhook, but extending the concept to other webhooks (or making it generic) is not difficult.
