Request Items (aka Webhooks)

Request items are used to call the Web API, for example. However, they may also be used to notify your website (as a webhook)

  • Url - The URL that SKM Platform will call upon successful transaction.
  • Type - The type of request.
    • DataRequest - This assumes the website (eg. Web API result) returns a JSON object (a hashmap, to be precise). SKM will take these values and insert them into the thank you page, instead of the [name]. So, if JSON object is {"key":"ABCD"}, and our message contains Thank you. Your key is [key]., the customer will see Thank you. Your key is ABCD.
    • VoidRequest - Simply sends a request without taking into account what it returns.
  • Method  - This can either be GET or POST. Web API 3 requires this to be GET.

Passing variables from one request

If the first request returns a JSON, those values can be used in the URL of succeeding requests further down. For example, if the first request returns a key, then we can add this value to the next request using [key]. These values can also be used in the custom message.

Pre-set variables

In addition to the variables returned from each request and the custom field, there are also several variables provided by Cryptolens. They all start with “cl_” prefix.

Currently, the following variables are available:

  • cl_transaction_id - the transaction id returned by either Stripe or PayPal. Useful if you would need to issue a refund, etc.
  • cl_email - the email provided in the payment form.
