Why to Integrate Convertbox with Webhooks?

Integrating ConvertBox with webhooks allows you to seamlessly transfer data from your ConvertBox forms to your preferred applications or custom setups.

Let’s dive into the process of setting up webhooks within ConvertBox and understand how data is structured for transmission.

Webhook Data Structure

When you set up a webhook, ConvertBox sends notifications via HTTP POST requests. The data is formatted in JSON format. Here’s an example of what the data structure looks like.

“first_name”: “John”,
“last_name”: “Smith”,
“email”: “test-webhook@convertbox.com”,
“phone”: “0123456789”,
“website”: “mysite.com”,
“$referer”: “http://mysite.com/signupurl”,
“campaign_name”: “My campaign name”,
“convertbox_name”: “My ConvertBox name”,
“convertbox_id”: 1234

Let’s break down what each field represents:

  • first_name: First name of the contact.
  • last_name: Last name of the contact (if provided).
  • email: Email address of the visitor.
  • phone: Phone number of the contact.
  • website: URL of the visitor’s website.
  • $referer: URL of the page where the contact subscribed.
  • campaign_name: Name of the submitted campaign.
  • convertbox_name: Name of the ConvertBox submitted.
  • convertbox_id: Unique ID number of the ConvertBox.

Working with Custom Fields

If you’ve customized fields on your ConvertBox form, their data will also be transmitted through the webhook using the custom ID you’ve assigned to each field.


Is integrating webhooks with ConvertBox suitable for beginners?

Integrating webhooks requires a certain level of technical expertise, particularly in understanding HTTP requests and JSON formatting. While ConvertBox provides a user-friendly interface for setting up integrations, users with prior experience working with custom webhooks will find it easier to navigate the setup process.

What data can I expect to receive through the webhook integration with ConvertBox?

When a form is submitted through ConvertBox, data such as the contact’s name, email, phone number, website URL, campaign name, ConvertBox name, and ID are transmitted via the webhook in JSON format. Additionally, any custom fields you’ve set up will also be included in the transmitted data.

How do I handle authentication with my webhook endpoint?

Depending on your webhook endpoint’s requirements, you may need to implement authentication mechanisms such as API keys, OAuth tokens, or basic authentication. Ensure that your ConvertBox configuration includes any necessary authentication parameters to securely transmit data to your endpoint.

What HTTP methods does ConvertBox support for webhook integrations?

ConvertBox currently supports HTTP POST requests for transmitting data via webhooks. Ensure that your webhook endpoint is configured to accept POST requests and can process the incoming JSON payload accordingly.

Does ConvertBox support asynchronous or batched webhook transmissions?

ConvertBox currently transmits webhook data synchronously, meaning that each form submission triggers an immediate HTTP POST request to your endpoint. If you require batched or asynchronous processing of webhook data, you may need to implement a queuing system or utilize ConvertBox’s API to retrieve form submissions periodically.
