account.created

Overview

This article provides information about the account.created webhook event.

The account.created server webhook event fires when a customer account is created. For example, when a customer whose email address does not match an existing account places a new order, a new customer account is created, and this event fires. Customer Accounts and single sign-on provides detailed information regarding customer accounts.

 About Webhook Expansion

account.created is not affected by webhook expansion.

 IMPORTANT

Each post from FastSpring to your endpoint may contain more than one webhook event in its payload. For more information, please see About Webhooks.
