First thing there is no web hooks available in Magento. Magento call them Event Observer.

What is an Event: An event can be any action Or state in magento like customer_register_success, sales_order_place_after etc.

What is an Observer: An Observer is a PHP class which listen to events, when events get fire Observer class get activated.

For example we need order details when order get placed.We are going to create a custom module for this say Pawanist_Orderdata

Create following files for module:




<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Pawanist_Orderdata" setup_version="1.0.1">


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
<event name="sales_order_place_after">
    <observer name="sales_pawanist_orderdata" instance="Pawanist\Orderdata\Observer\GetOrderData" />



namespace Pawanist\Orderdata\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Psr\Log\LoggerInterface;

class GetOrderData implements ObserverInterface
 protected $logger;

 public function __construct(LoggerInterface$logger) {
 $this->logger = $logger;

 public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
    try {
        $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();

        $total = $order->getGrandTotal();//this will log order total

    }catch (\Exception $e) {

After creating module, you need to activate module using:

- php bin/magento setup:upgrade
- php bin/magento cache:flush
- php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy (only required in production mode)

Hope above will help!


You have to use the Magento Observer feature here and use event sales_order_place_after

You can follow this link to implement this https://meetanshi.com/blog/get-order-data-from-magento-2-sales_order_place_after-event/


Try this Webhook module https://www.mageplaza.com/magento-2-webhook/ After creating order, it will send a hook request to any endpoints.

  • but its not support with order status with multiple endpoints. – Anas Mansuri Aug 22 at 12:10
