Request Payload

Events follow the structure listed below. You are expected to respond with a 200 response code to acknowledge that the event was successfully received.

Request Headers

Each webhook event will have the following headers included in the request

x-user-idUser ID of the MonetizeNow user triggering the webhook event.usr_qDfP1rOyHShW2oGZ

Signature Verification

MonetizeNow signs the webhook events it sends to your registered endpoints by including a header X-MonetizeNow-Signature with each request. This allows you to verify that the request to your endpoint came from MonetizeNow and not a third-party. To verify the signature:

  1. Extract the signature from the header X-MonetizeNow-Signature.
  2. Extract the UTF-8 text payload as bytes.
  3. Compute a HMAC with the SHA256 hash function, using your webhook entry's secret as the key and the request payload bytes as the message.
  4. Base64-encode the HMAC digest and compare this value to the signature header to check for equivalence.

Verifying the request will vary depending on your programming language.

const sig = Buffer.from(req.get('x-monetizenow-signature'), 'base64');
const hmac = crypto.createHmac('sha256', secret);
const digest = Buffer.from(hmac.update(req.rawBody).digest('base64'), 'base64');
const verified = crypto.timingSafeEqual(digest, sig);
bytes = request.get_data();
sentHash = request.headers.get('x-monetizenow-signature');
computedHash = hmac.new(secret, msg=bytes, digestmod=hashlib.sha256)
verified = sentHash == base64.b64encode(computedHash.digest())
fun base64Encode(bytes: ByteArray) = Base64.getEncoder().encodeToString(bytes)

fun hmac256(
  key: String,
  data: String,
): ByteArray {
  val digest = "HmacSHA256"
  val mac = Mac.getInstance(digest)
  return mac.doFinal(data.toByteArray(Charsets.UTF_8))

fun isSignatureValid(
  requestSignature: String,
  webhookSecret: String,
  stringifiedPayload: String,
): Boolean {
	val generatedSignature = base64Encode(
    bytes = hmac256(
      key = webhookSecret,
      data = stringifiedPayload,
  return generatedSignature == requestSignature

Delivery attempts and retries

In the event that MonetizeNow receives a non-2xx response status from an endpoint, the delivery will be tried up to 3 times, with a minimum backoff of 5 seconds in between attempts.
